    Don't ever recall Apple advertise 13.5GB for storage.

    At least they can upgrade storage for data like movies, books, etc.

    13.5GB out of 16GB is 84% of the advertised space, free for apps.
    8GB out of 16GB is 50% of the advertised space, free for apps.

    Do people realize that hard drive manufacturers use the definition 'One Kilobyte = 1000 bytes" when describing their hard drives' capacities? We all know 1K = 1024 bytes, but the manufacturers use the modified number to make their drives look bigger.

    Imagine if they used the definition "One Kilobyte = 500 bytes" (50%) instead.

    The logic is this - manufacturers inflate their numbers to look better with an uninformed public.

    A couple of examples:
    Are 24" TVs really 24 inches diagonally? No.
    Does a 320GB hard drive really have 320 gigabytes (1KB = 1024 bytes, 1MB=1024KB, 1GB=1024MB) of storage? No.

    Now, the 24" TV might not be 24 inches diagonally, but it's close. Imagine if the TV were advertised as a 24" TV but it only was 12 inches diagonally of viewable space. Would people be upset?

    Apple advertises 16GB of space on an iDevice that has 13.5GB of app-usable space. 13.5 isn't 16 but it's a lot closer to meeting its claim than Samsung's 8GB out of 16GB.
