Samsung Android 9 Pie Adoptable Storage is too little, too late

It seems that Samsung is finally trying to play the good Android citizen card lately. In addition to cleaning up its act as far as monthly security updates go, it has also opted to work with Google right from the start in supporting its grand vision of foldable phones.

Though the Switch is shaping up to be a great platform, one of Nintendo's biggest oversights with it is only including 32GB of internal storage.
