    Other than the onboard mem what is the difference between that and 32gb model?

    I don't believe there is anything different between the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models of the Galaxy S4. Other than the internal memory of course.

    I had the 16GB first, which only had a little over 9GB of personal combined storage. I took it back for the 32GB and have over 24GB of personal storage. Outside of that, those are the only differences. Oh, there is a $50 price difference too. (But well worth it in the long run.)

    If you use mostly the stock Samsung applications and not much else, the 16 GB model is fine. But if you want to use allot of your own apps or download content from Google play, Netflix, Hulu, or such to view offline you need the 32GB. You can't place those on the microSD card and you quickly fill up the onboard space.

    If there's no difference with the phone besides memory, why spend $50 for 16GB extra?

    Because many people need that extra internal storage for apps.

    If you look at any of the high end games, they're HUGE

    Not much of a gamer myself. I could live with the 16

    Interesting. Do you think Samsung will eventually integrate the MicroSD into the internal memory? I think they're disabling it on purpose for this exact reason

    16 GB is plenty for applications, if it is not games. I have about 125 applications on my phone, with barely two GB used up for applications.

    Netflix and Hulu are streamed, so RAM is not really important.

    Google play movies and tv shows are the bummer though.

    There are ways to move Google play music to the SD card though.

    I've had my S4 for about a month now. Its a 16gb. I've had no problems yet with memory but I wish I would have known because I would have gotten the 64gb version.
