When Samsung's flagship Galaxy S4 launched, there were many reviewers in the tech world who griped about the limited amount of space available for app storage on the 16GB model. The issue arose when it was discovered that only 9.15GB were available for storage and that there was no way to move apps to the SD card.

This morning, Samsung released a software update that rectifies this problem, increasing available storage to a whopping 9.23 GB and also opening up the pathway for apps to now be installed on the SD card. This functionality has been available through third-party apps the whole time but some people like to use the manufacturers apps.


Other improvements include new camera firmware, a semi-transparent status bar, HDR video recording, easier to read fonts, and several bug fixes. The update measure in at 357 MB and is only available for the Snapdragon-powered variant of the Galaxy S4.
