It is common knowledge that users never get the entire advertised internal storage on a mobile device. That’s because certain essential components take up quite a bit of space. For example there’s the operating system, applications, settings, other software and much more. This holds true for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge as well. With the 32GB model of both devices users will only have some 23GB available to them.


Apparently 23GB will be all that’s left of the 32GB onboard storage after configuring a Google account with the device and also updating all pre-installed applications through the Google Play Store.

The 23GB of free storage will be readily available to users. They will be able to use it for storing photos, videos, files, movies, music, apps, games and more.

According to the report going by this figure it can be expected that the 128GB model of these smartphones will have 119GB free and the 64GB model will have about 55GB free. There might be slight changes to these figures based on carrier and region.

The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge don’t have a microSD card slot so there’s no way to expand the internal memory, unless you go with cloud storage.
