A big issue with the Galaxy S4 was the lack of free internal space with Samsung stating the use of MicroSD card slot the reason for it’s existence, however without the ability to move apps over to the MicroSD card, the free internal space would soon be no more. They have finally included the ability to more apps to the MicroSD card allowing you to not only free up more internal memory but simply install more apps to your external card. Other features included are a Smart pause toggle, semi-transparent status bar and some new icons.
