The Galaxy S23 devices are taking up 60GB of internal storage in some regions

As soon as the South Korean firm Samsung launched the Galaxy S23 series, all of its novelties started to be unlayered, and the drawbacks were also popping up. The major modification of this series is its storage variants, but there seems to be an issue with it. The company indeed increased the internal storage, but their pre-loaded data is eating up too much space, with which the users are dissatisfied, particularly the US variants.

The US and EU variants of the Galaxy S23 use 60GB of space.

As per the reports, the US and EU variants of the Galaxy S23 devices are using up to 60GB of the device’s space with its pre-loaded applications and services only. In the case of vanilla Galaxy S23’s 128GB storage variant, 60GB is nearly half of it. If we look at other manufacturers’ devices, such as Google’s Pixel 7 series, they come with only 15GB of pre-loaded data, which is straight one-fourth of the Galaxy S23’s 60GB pre-used space.

The issue is, with this much already-used internal storage, the recently-launched Galaxy S23 devices (Base S23S23+, and S23 Ultra) will run out of storage sooner than you thought. Now a very obvious question appeared here, why Samsung’s Galaxy phones are consuming more than usual space (with pre-loaded data)? The answer is very clear, a heavy OS and UI with a broad lineup of services. 

Why the Galaxy has more pre-loaded data

Informatively, all Galaxy phones come with an Android version with a layer of Samsung’s One UI, which takes more space than the stock Android. Additionally, the phones also come with too many preinstalled applications from Google and Samsung. Because of using Android, Google emerges a bunch of its apps to the wielder device, and the parental company Samsung also includes some of its own applications. 

In particular, the Galaxy device has the Messages app of Google and Samsung, and neither of them can be uninstalled. The same applies to other apps such as App Store, Calendar, and more, which means the Galaxy contains two copies of many same apps. Besides, as Samsung sells its storage, some third-party apps like Facebook and others also come preinstalled in them. 

Samsung may provide these services for the user’s convenience, but many of them seem unnecessary to them. The main problem appears with the restriction to uninstall because you can’t uninstall or delete many of them. However, the preinstalled apps vary by the market, in which the US provides comparatively more bloatware. Thankfully, the Galaxy S23 devices also have some other cloud storage options to rely on.
