Even The 8GB iPhone 5c Makes The Samsung Galaxy S5 Look Like A Rip-Off


Here’s a simple math question for you. How much more free space should a 16GB Samsung Galaxy S5 smartphone have than an 8GB iPhone 5c?

If you said twice as much, wrong. That’s not Samsung math! Because in reality, an 8GB iPhone 5c has just 3.16 GB less usable storage than a flagship 16GB Galaxy S5.

In other words, the 16GB Galaxy S5 ships with 7.86GB usable storage, after you account for the space used by the operating system and default apps.

Comparatively? The 8GB iPhone 5c ships with around 4.9GB of space still available. Thats not a lot, but compared to the Galaxy S5, it’s only about a quarter less space for roughly half the price!
