T-Mobile only selling the 16GB Galaxy S5 in stores according to a new leak

Galaxy S5 T-Mobile

An internal T-Mobile document has revealed that the carrier will only sell the 16GB variant of the smartphone in stores. Users willing to get the 32GB model can still get it by placing an order for it through T-Mobile’s online stores. Considering that most buyers use the online shop to make the purchase, this might not affect a lot of users, but for the people that would like to walk into a store and try out the device before getting it, only the 16GB variant will be on offer.

The T-Mobile variant of the Galaxy S5 has generated quite a lot of interest already with the carrier crossing 100,000 pre registrations in no time. The limited storage could be a concern for a few considering that the smartphone was recently reported to have only 10GB of usable storage. So it might be a wise idea to get the 32GB variant of the Galaxy S5. However, it comes with a microSD card slot, so you can add storage whenever necessary.

The Galaxy S5 sports a 5.1 inch 1080p display, a 16 megapixel camera, a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 chipset, 2GB of RAM, Android 4.4 KitKat and a 2,800 mAh battery.

  1. I can see how that works, some people also think that Verizon is kind of a so-so cheap way to go. I guess it just depends really on what you want vs. what you need. If you need more gigs you are willing to pay the price and move to another provider.

  2. We’ll have to see if T Mobile will stock only the 16 GB version of the new HTC One as well. There is a rumor that there will be a 16GB version also.

  3. Its very convenient to buy anything online. You just hit a few buttons on the keyboard and clicks a few links,and you are done. But I agree with the thought of supporting the local brick and mortar shops. But anyway, the money is going to T Mobile.

  4. Is T-Mobile doing the same thing most other retail stores are doing? Sell more online to offset the cost and upkeep of an in-house store? It seems like so many places are doing this and it is a pain when you can not get what you want local. Many of us like to support the local brick and mortar shops.

  5. This doesn’t really surprise me. I guess when I think of T-Mobile, I think of it as a “lower cost” carrier anyway, meaning that not only do they charge less, but their customers are the ones that can’t afford the higher-end phones anyway. I see a lot more T-Mobile customers buying the 16 GB phone than the 32 GB phone, but I would think that more Verizon and AT&T customers, on the other hand, would buy the 32 GB phone as opposed to the 16 GB phone.
