    On the forum, one of the ops posted that the above SanDisk SD Card is incompatible with the Galaxy Note2? Can anyone confirm this and does this apply to the 32 gig SanDisk Ultra as well?
    Thank you in advance

    Does the SD card (64 gig SanDisk) contribute any benefit to the GN2's performance.?

    My SanDisk micro sd works just fine in my note 2. You do have to format in the phone tho.

    Not that the Note 2 needs it but a slow SD card could contribute to slow read and writes for photos, videos, etc. Best to get the fastest you can afford.

    I installed a 32gb SanDisk Ultra in my Note 2 and it works just fine. I did format it before I did anything else because I read somewhere that that's a good practice, but other than that, I just popped it in.

    Not really other than giving you a lot of storage. I take a lot of pictures and video and the HD video eats up the storage! I got the class 10 because I thought it would make a difference. I do see a difference when transferring things on my computer as the class 10 is faster. It is the best you can get right now but still not as fast as internal memory. That is probably why when taking pictures in burst mode, they go into the internal memory. I do like having the 64 GB card since you know it will be a while before filling it up.

    Planoman,
    Thank you!, did you reformat the SanDisk 64 Ultra in the GN2? If so does the Note 2 reformat it 8n Exfat32?

    I did format it in the Galaxy S3 when new and then just popped it into my GN2. I believe it is formatted in exFAT. The only issue I had was trying to put one into the Galaxy Note 10.1 which needed to be FAT32. I returned the Note 10.1 and my understanding is that Samsung has since release a fix so it could accept a exFAT SD Card which is how the 64GB SDXC cards come.

    Once again you come to the rescue. Why is Everyone making such a big deal about the SanDisk 64 Ultra? Isnt exFat32 the fastest of the 3 formats? Im planning to use it for my Music storage, ringtones and sounds. I was caught completely off guard with the cant move apps to SD card thing.
    I ordered it from Amazon.com already, I guess had I known about all this hoopla I probably would have ordered the 32 gig instead. Gosh, couldnt beat the price though.

    the card works great in the phone, had mine since release day wating, and it has always worked... the only problem or gripe i have, is the ability to move apps to SD, other than that, there are no other problems with it, it works wonderfully

    To the post a couple above about the "will this work" the answer is nope... that's an SD card. That will be rather tricky to put in the phone.

    Of the 3 formats available, does exFat formatting offer a "Higher rate of transfer" than the other formats. Is there any advantage to exFat formatting. Lastly, is it possible the issue with moving apps to the SD card can be fixed without having to root the GN2?
    This is based on the use of the microSD SanDisk 64 gig Ultra Card.

    Here are the read/write results I got with SDTools and my Sandisk class 10 64GB micro SD card on my Note 2. I formatted it in the phone.

    I actually saw similar graphs posted by SanDisk. I would like to understand the advantage of exFat Formatting compared to the other formats available.
    Thank you in advance

    As far as I know the total amount compatible for the note 2 is 64gb for a micro sd card but can connect to a much larger hard drive via the microsd port Samsung Galaxy Note II | AT&T Android Smartphone | Samsung Mobile

    OP: I have a 64gb class 10 from Bestbuy and works perfectly all I did was pop it in and it worked.... doesn't even have to select to format it

    While I appreciate your answer "Max", its not even close to what I asked. My post of 08:54am asked about the exFat format and its benefits in comparison to the other 2 formats.

    I installed the 32g Ultra on my wife's GN2 and the 64g on mine and have had zero problems. I use a Macbook Pro and didnt have to make any file format changes to the card.

    From what I have seen, exFat is the most efficient for flash. Fat32 has a 4 gb file size limit, and exFat does not...

    Yes, you can try on Google Play store and do a search for 'AParted' ... just partition it. And you will find that your Note 2 will read the SDcard.
    I tried several apps on my pc to format, partition and with absolute no success. But this phone app did the trick. So basically I had to format & partition the Extsdcard on my phone itself. it's a sandisk ultra micro sdxc uhs-1 class 10 exFat 64Gig. But unfortunately it's formatted to Fat32. Still going to try and reformat to ExFat and see if it will work.
