If you buy a 32GB GS3 the full 32 won't be accessible.

Of course you'll never have the memory capacity advertised, you always loose a small part of it ...
But here, droping from 16Go to 11Go, we're talking about loosing ONE THIRD of the advertised memory !!!
That's really too much and I never seen that before. Yesterday I checked the Galaxy Note of a friend and saw it was the exact same amount of free memory (11Go out of 16 ...). So apparently this problem is not restricted to the S3 but also to some other Samsung devices, and I hate this ...
On the SIII mini of my girlfriend, the free memory is 4Go ou of 8go, which is half of it just out of the box !!!
This is not fair from Samsung, they sould have advertised this, I really feel like they stole memory to us ...
I tried some apps like app2sd, move2sd, etc ... None were working on my S3, and even if it would work, it will not move the entire app and its data to the SD card, which may be a problem for app updates ...
I really don't understand why Android does not have a "move to sd card" feature, knowing that most of the android devices have an SD card slot.
And it would be so easy for a Google developper to let Play Store ask you where to install the apps ...
It's a big disapointment for me.
I now finally took the decision to send back the S3 to the dealer and search for a second hand 32Go S3, or wait one more year for the S4 ...
