Announcement comes from companies CEO JK Shin
Samsung launched its Galaxy S4
smartphone back in April and the device has proven to be incredibly popular. It took the smartphone about two months to sell 20 million units and four months after launch to hit 30 million units. As the phone has aged and competition increased, it's sales pace has declined.
The Galaxy S4 sold only about 5 million units in August. However, Samsung CEO JK Shin recently stated that over 40 million Galaxy S4 smartphones have been sold globally since the device launched. Considering the phone is been around for about six months, this is an impressive feat for Samsung.
Samsung has continued to roll out some interesting new products following the launch of the Galaxy S4. Most recently, Samsung
unveiled its Galaxy Note 3 and the Galaxy Gear smartwatch
. The Galaxy Note 3 has impressed both reviewers and customers; however, the Galaxy Gear smartwatch has proven to be rather unloved in many reviews.

There's one trick for Samsung phones that all should do. Completely wipe it and load a custom ROM because Samsung's ROMs are sheeeut. wouldn't have the problem with 16gb if there weren't so much bloatware. Absolutely out of control rediculous. takes up all the storage and it takes up all the RAM. That's the reason to note 3 has 3gb ram, to manage the bloat.

Oh I agree to a point. Samsung's ROMS are far too bloated and eat up all the resources on your phone.
Problem is that most roms available on xda-developers require your phone to first be rooted and have a custom recovery installed. Both of which will void the warranty and bump your customer image counter all by themselves without getting into the nice, lean, custom rom.
The average joe is not going to want to take on this kind of risk, and instead of buying the 16GB SGS4 will look to the 32GB from Motorola, LG, HTC and as much as I hate to say this --- Apple.
