If you've been eyeing up the 16GB Galaxy S4 but just haven't been able to pull the trigger, AT&T's newest announcement might be of interest to you. The 32GB variant of the GS4 will be on sale this Friday, May 10th. It's the same phone in every other way, though.

Many excited buyers were shocked to see how bad the Samsung bloatware problem had become when firing up the 16GB GS4 in recent weeks. Nearly half of the storage is taken up by the operating system and included apps. The device does support a microSD card, but that's not the point. Internal storage is usually faster and more convenient than a separate card. The 32GB phone also includes the SD card slot, so you get the best of both worlds if you can front the extra cash.
The 32GB Galaxy S4 is going to cost $249.99, which is just $50 more than the 16GB model. You might spend $10 or so on a 16GB microSD to bring the cheaper GS4 up to that level, so maybe it's worth the extra money to have your storage all in one place. Games are getting pretty hefty these days.
