Frustrated with Samsung Storage Lock

Why won't Samsung unlock the Android feature that allows you to format SD cards and add them to your internal storage space.  It's so frustrating on a 32gb Phone when the O/S is consuming 20gb of space and apps use 5 more gigabytes of space.  If Apple can use only 5-6gb of space for their O/S why does Samsung feel the need to have 20gb used for Android and if that is the case why then lock out the format SD card as storage.  If they don't fix this I'm afraid I'm going to move away from Samsung to another brand of phone that doesn't do this because it's royally stupid the way they manage this and lock out the feature.  UNACCEPTABLE SAMSUNG.
