Mishaal Rahman and I have hands-on the Samsung Galaxy S24 series. Ask us anything!
  • If you're still fine using your S8 by all means, no reason to upgrade. The point I was trying to make was that the storage issue was misinformation.

    What it boiled down to was two main things: the device showing the advertised storage converted from GB to GiB but displayed as GB, and users not granting the proper permission for the Device Care causing storage taken up by apps to be lumped into the system storage. Samsung later updated devices so users wouldn't be confused.

  • Both materials feel cool to the touch when initially held. I'd say the titanium is a bit more grippier which might be relevant if you like to use your phone without a case.

    The colours are matched more on the back and frame for the S24/+ compared to the S24U.

  • One UI doesn't use that much more space compared to other skins if you judge by the size of the super partition. Unfortunately, ArsTechnica jumped the gun on the topic without doing proper research.

    I'll edit this comment later with a list of pre-installed apps on the US unlocked model later.
