I just received my 16Go S3 a few weeks ago, and I was very disapointed to see that we only have 11Go of free space, which is very small and even more for a 500€ device... I feel like Samsung just stole one third of my internal memory ... I always had 32Go devices, and I feel really bad only having now this small space to install apps ...
I know there are work around solutions which will move apps from intermal memory to the SD card, but it does not work for all apps.
There's also a way to patch custom ROMs so that the external memory becomes the internal, but I want to keep the stock ROM and be able to update through official Samsung OTA's.
So I am now thinking of sending back my new S3 to the dealer, to buy a second hand 32Go S3 ...
Before doing that, I was thinking that maybe Google is planning to change Play Store in the way it installs apps : it would be great if it could ask where to install the apps (internal or external memory) prior to doing it.
Has anyone heard of this potentially future feature in Play Store ?
If it's not planned by Google, it would be great if this feature would be added to the Play Store by a non-Google developper ...
Or is a "Move to SD Card" feature planned by Google in the next Android version ?
This feature was available with previous versions of Android by running an ADB command but this does not work anymore on the S3.
