The only negative for me is internal storage.
SIM Free UK will only see the 16GB model at launch.
This used to be enough but Samsung have not moved with the times.....
Granted when you download an app to the internal storage it will only consume around 50MB or less but it's not the actual app which is the problem it is the additional data files required to run the app where the problem rises.
A couple of years ago with a 16GB device you could happily install and run many, many apps.
These days though developers are pushing the boundaries but at the cost of storage space. Now we see apps requiring well over 1 to 2GB+.
At this rate with data sizes increasing, if you move this problem on six months to another year you then quickly realise the 16GB model has little chance in longevity.
.........I don't always get your questions right.... but you'll certainly know I've tried.
P.S. Many thanks for the Thanks votes. Thanks received are converted into a charitable donation.
