The folks over at GSM Arena have been lucky enough to get their hands on three of Samsung’s flagship smartphones of 2015, the Galaxy S6, and have taken to their blog to report how much free space you’ll actually be getting when you purchase a 32GB, 64GB or 128GB model.
Straight out of the box, the 32GB model will have a mere 23GB of free storage, with a whopping 9GB being taken up by Samsung’s firmware. More specifically, 6.5GB has been assigned to the operating system, with 2.5GB being allotted to stock applications, which can, of course, be disabled, but not uninstalled.
The 64GB variant will ship with around 54GB of clear space, whilst the beastly 128GB version will have 118GB free for all of your apps, documents, pictures, videos and music.
So which model should you opt for?
I’d recommend picking up the 64GB Galaxy S6 if you can. My reasoning behind this is simple. Most smartphones on the market ship with 32GB of internal memory, but users still find themselves inserting a microSD card in order to store additional files. Seeing as Samsung removed the microSD card slot from the S6, it would be best to opt for a higher capacity, so you don’t risk running out of space.
