Samsung responds to Galaxy S4 storage woes, part two: possible fix through “further software optimization”
About two weeks ago, Samsung issued a response for all those who expressed concerns over the Galaxy S4’s then burgeoning storage issue. It said that users should learn to deal with the situation, considering that the Galaxy S4’s storage space was being put to good use through all of the extra software features that come with it. This wasn’t really the response that most people were looking for, and in the comments section of that article, we saw people say just as much.
Fortunately, it looks like Samsung never stopped looking at the issue, and now it has issued a new response. We think this is one that a lot of people won’t have any trouble getting behind now.
According to a statement just released to the guys over at CNET UK, Samsung can “appreciate this issue being raised,” and that they will work on improving communications for a better understanding of it. And not only that, but they are also looking at “the possibility to secure more memory space through further software optimisation.”
That’s one way of saying that a future software update could soon arrive to slim down, if not completely take away, some of the Galaxy S4’s more superfluous software features.
Samsung wrapped up its statement by saying this:
Samsung is committed to listening to our customers and responding to their needs as part of our innovation process.
If the recent unveiling of the Vanilla Android-flavored Galaxy S4 at this year’s Google I/O is any indication, we’d say that Samsung is listening quite well to its customers. That, or it’s just gotten extremely lucky, and was at the right place and the right time when Google decided to choose to support a non-Nexus flagship handset. Either way, we’re looking forward to seeing how Samsung rolls out these much-needed “software optimizations” to see if the storage problem goes away.
