Release the Samsung Galaxy S4 / Note 3 with 32 and 64 GB internal memory

      Spain

Samsung promised and advertised that it will release the Samsung Galaxy S4 devices with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB internal memory. The S4 came only the 16GB version came into the market , few countries have the 32GB and no sign at all about the 64GB devices

Some facts:
- The 16GB device is coming only with about 9 GB usable memory for your applications.

- You CAN'T move the apps on the sd-card 

The new "Move to SD" is useless because you can move only apps, but not its data (the data is huge, not the apk)

- ROOTING is not a solution, because there is no safe or 100% functional way to move the apps to the sd-card and you will also void the warranty

- Some S4 devices comes with the bootloader locked so you can't (yet) install custom ROMs and if you do that, you will lose all the Samsung features

- Samsung promised 3 versions: with 16GB, 32 GB and 64GB devices and two colors: White Frost and Black Mist

- The price difference between 16GB version and 32 GB is usually below $100 (most of time $50/50/£50) and same between 32 GB and 64 GB

We want to let Samsung know that we want to buy the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung's future smartphones but we will refrain doing that until at least the 32 GB device will come to the market. We don't care that it's more expensive than the 16GB device, but we want it in online (eg. Amazon) and physical stores worldwide, unlocked, not only on US careers: We want the device in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and South America, in both colors: Black Mist and White Frost

Keep ignoring your fans and customers will lead to fans going and buy other brands mobiles (eg. HTC, Sony) which proper release their devices with different internal memory storage and also your fame will be hurt with bad reviews and pissed of fans.

 

Update 1: It seems like a blogger contacted ASA (Advertising Standards Agency) to complain about the lack of space into the Samsung Galaxy S4 16 GB and the lack of stock of the 32gb and 64gb versions. You can read the whole ASA's response here: http://gavinsgadgets.wordpress.com/2013/05/15/the-samsung-s4-memory-saga-and-the-advertising-standards-agency/

Resume: It's seems like Samsung blame retailers because of the lack of 32gb and 64gb variants of the S4. Meanwhile, Samsung was forced to remove the 32gb and 64gb specs from their websites, but those devices are in stock. The retailers have all the fault for not ordering 32gb and 64 gb devices to Samsung, because of the huge demand of 16gb devices and "few interest" (as retailers says) for 32gb and 64gb. It seems like Samsung ask retailers to buy a minimum quantity of units, if they want the 32gb or the 64gb version. Those are scared to order because of the risk to remain with those units in stock because of the "few" interest, losing money this way.

Keep signing this petition, this way we will show retailers there is quite interest for those devices and make Samsung to reduce the minimum units a distributor or retailer need to buy.

Please sign the petition and I will do the best to forward to Samsung Mobile Korea.

      Hello everyone ! First of all thank you to all those who signed the petition. I already forwarded the results to Samsung and to careers presidents but I also updated the petition to reflect the Samsung's future releasing devices. We really hope that Samsung will release next month the Note 3 with 32GB and 64GB variants, not like it happened with the S4.

      I will continue to update the petition and let's hope we will soon see the S4 in USA and the rest of country where is still impossible to be found.

      Best regards,
      Laszlo

      Hello everyone ! Great news ! Since today, the S4 GT-I9505 32gb white is available on one of the biggest store in Germany. They have international shipping but only in Europe, so you may be interested in ordering the phone. In Europe you will get 2 years local warranty. The price is also very nice: 659 euros.
      Black color version coming soon!

      Hey everyone !

      I know that some of you that signed the petition are on Verizon career, so I have some great news. I can't confirm the truth of this information myself, but I found the information that Verizon’s Chief Marketing Officer, Tami Erwin confirmed the 32gb on Verizon.

      He sent a customer this email:
      "Thanks for your e-mail and the question regarding the S4 w/32GB of built in storage. Verizon plans to offer this option and is currently working w/Samsung to confirm the date in which this model will be available on-line."

      There is no date, but there's a hope for Verizon customers.
      Source: http://www.gottabemobile.com/2013/05/28/verizon-galaxy-s4-32gb-confirmed/

      However, the greatest news will be seeing the S4 32gb and 64gb unlocked in retailers stores worldwide.

      Keep sharing and inviting your friends to sign the petition !

      Thanks once again everyone who signed the petition!

      As I promise, I don't like to come and update the news section every day or week, because I don't want to spam anybody. I want to thank everyone who signed and shared the petition until now so far. If you have possibilities, please share the petition link on social networks and blogs, websites and forums. More signature we get, quicker we will see the S4 with 32gb and 64gb and maybe this would not happens in the future.
      I kept sending messages and calling to Samsung and retailers as Amazon asking them from news about Galaxy S4 32gb. Last message I got was from Samsung UK:
      "I am sorry that you have not received any information regarding the release of the 32 and 64GB versiion of the Galaxy S4. I can understand your desire to have this information as the extra internal space would be more suited to you.
      Product launches are decided according to market demands. We will make an official announcement when we finalise the plan for the UK."

      Have a great day everyone !

      Only 9 gigs of usable memory, that's a lot less than an iPhone with the basic 16 gigs and 12 of usable memory. I would pay the money needed for a 64gb model, this is really getting old. Please samsung, don't advertise anything if you don't plan to deliver.
