galaxy-s7-design_03If you’re thinking of getting yourself the Samsung Galaxy S7 or the S7 Edge, you might want to take note that according to users who have gotten their hands on the phone, it has been pointed out that the handsets come with 8GB less out of the box, presumably due to the operating system and the various apps that come bundled with the handset.

This is normal and applies to pretty much any device, although admittedly 8GB is a lot of space, especially if you were to get the 32GB model in which a quarter of your free space will be gone to default apps and the operating system. However thankfully the Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge both come with support for microSD, so worst comes to worst, you will be able to pop in a microSD card and it will solve your storage issues.

Now we have to admit we are curious as to how this situation might play out in China. Last year both Samsung and Oppo were sued over the installation of bloatware on their handsets. Samsung later gave in to the demands of its customers and allowed them to delete the bloatware, although this was only applicable in China.

We’re not sure if this rule will be applied to other markets or for the Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge for that matter, but like we said, it’s something you’ll want to take note of especially if you plan on using your phone for a lot of media like photos, videos, music, and games.
