Samsung has remained true to its word and has cut down on storage bloat in the Galaxy S4… by a little bit, at least. SamMobile reports that a new software update  gives the 16GB version of the Galaxy S4 9.23GB of usable storage, up from the 9.15GB the model had when it first rolled out. While this may not seem like much, it could be the first of many updates Samsung is working on to lighten the load of all the apps that it has preloaded onto the device. The company is pushing out the update to Galaxy S4 users in Germany first and it’s not yet clear when it will arrive for Galaxy S4 owners in the United States.
