AT&T on Monday announced that the 32 GB Samsung Galaxy S4 will be added to its smartphone lineup on May 10th. The higher capacity model will retail for $249.99 with a new two-year service agreement. AT&T has been selling the 16 GB model since late April for $199.99.

It might be worth it for prospective Galaxy S4 buyers to fork over the extra 50 dollars for the larger 32 GB model, as the entry-level 16 GB device has just 8 GB of usable storage after the Android operating system and preloaded apps are accounted for. Alternatively, a microSD card can be used for up to 64 GB of expanded storage.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 has received mixed reviews from critics, with improved hardware specifications that are boggled down by so-called “gimmicky features.” Meanwhile, the HTC One has quietly positioned itself as arguably the best Android smartphone on the market right now.
