    I don't tend to play the large games (I'm more of a puzzle game kind of guy) so while I would love to have 128GB of storage, I can live with 80GB.

    I do have one question. Do I have control over where the camera save its pictures and videos? I tend to use the camera a lot, and it would be nice to have that go to the external storage.
    It's the second to last option under settings (above reset).

    Thanks for the info. If Verizon would just ship my Note 2, I could probably figure thngs like this for myself.

    New guy here, still learning about all this. I'll probably be moving into a Note 2 soon, coming from a Windows Phone. How exactly is the memory installed on the Galaxy and Note devices? Do they also use embedded chips in the hardware? I was able to upgrade my Arrive from 16-32gb by tearing into it and installing a 32gb SD Card. Is the memory hardwired into the circuitry? Is there some reason why only the 16gb version is being sent to the States, yet everyone else gets the options for the 32 and 64gb versions?

    AFAIK, no one has gotten a 32gb or 64gb device yet. Only the 16 has been released so far.

    You could also download the user manual and give yourself a head start. I've learned a lot from it. This is the first phone I've had in years in which the user manual was actually useful.
    I have it in my phone for quick reference.

    Just FYI as of this past Friday, my friend that works for Verizon says he can pre-order a 32gb for me, it won't be any sooner than the 27th, but it is a different sku than the 16gb so there is hope!!!

    Could you please get the SKU from him and post it here? I have to order it through the business division of Verizon, and my contact hadn't heard about the 32GB model.

    Thanks.

    Out of ALL the people in the world who know anything about the Note 2 and none of them knowing about a 32GB version slated for the US; yet you have a friend who works for Verizon who can get you one. :rolleyes:

    I asked him that, he told me he didn't know anything about pricing on it yet, but MY guess is it most likely $100 more than the 16gb, not sure though

    I just chatted with a sales rep at samsung.com
    And she said the 32GB version would be available in the US: "soon".

    And I've heard of people in some Asian countries getting 32 and 64 GB versions.

    would definitely be nice to know more info, like SKUs, prices, times...

    Thanks for all the info here so far!

    I guess I'll wait a bit longer before getting this baby.

    Upwards,

    I think the 32gb is the perfect size capacity. Add to that the ability to up the storage through microsd and this is going to be a killer entertainment device.

    Does anyone know if the actual memory on the Galaxy Note, or any Galaxy device for that matter, is hardwired on the board? Just curious if it uses another MicroSD card buried under the case somewhere? HTC did that with the Arrive phone and I know there's a few others that have done the same. If that's the case, would it be possible to just replace the card with a 32 or 64gb card? Would the Android OS prevent that from being done?

    Just wondering

    The 32GB and 64GB Note II are definitely coming. At least in Germany. So I'm pretty sure they'll also find their way to the U.S. In Germany you can buy the phones without any branding at Amazon or any other online store. You do not have to buy it from a provider. For the Galaxy SIII we already have the 32GB(564 ~ $716) and the 64GB version (654 ~ $830).

    So I think it's just a matter of time until they'll release the 32 and 64GB model of the Note II in the U.S. and Germany.

    in responce to you can not run apps from the external sd card slot
    have you ever heard of an app called app2sd that lets you run apps from the sd card?
    you can also partition your sd card and have your dalvik cashe setting in your kernel point to that ext-4 partition instead.
    works on every single solitary android device i have ever worked with, including makes by samsung, htc, zte, hwaie or however you spell that.
    just wate on a rom maker to include it in a rom or mod the kernel yourself to make the change. but dont say that it cant be done.
    Yes. I have that app on my new 16gb Note 2. It cannot yet move apps to SD. No app can yet, until they are updated. There is no "move to sd" on the associated OS screen.

    Idk lets check out a teardown, id rather do that then open my noteii for no reason. If its harware n not just another slot, I wonder if it would be possable to get say 128gb of ultra highspeed transflash n solder it in. Bigger than the rest boosh.

    Another note, for the note lol, the port space on the micro sd card is long, long enuff for two cards, a converter that has one sit on top and onother behind it with rails to hold it there making a 128 card out of two 64 would be so freaki. Awsome. I looked, theyre not out there.

    Use desigas toolkit and mod the kernel to support app2sd and partition sdcard? I guess this should be included in a rom then

    Not everyone, Same issue here in Australia. All we have so far is the 16gb version in either the 3G or LTE. 32gb and 64gb does exist as you can order them online from Korea unlocked but they will most likely use a different network band compared to your countries carriers.
    Samsung Galaxy Note II
    Samsung Galaxy Note II

    A phone of this calibre should of had 32gb as minimum, Personally I want this phone as an all in one device,Music for car/work,GPS for car,Games/Vids for lunch breaks etc etc so i need as much storage as I can get, 64gb internal and 64gb on Sd card I am sure I am not alone on this, Hurry up Samsung ship the big guns!

    I was going to get a 32GB SIII, but Radio Shack is still not offering yet (I wanted to save $50.00 on the price). So now that Note 2 is coming I want that in the 32GB, but no one really saying when it will arrive.
    Maybe Sprint will offer it online, like they did with the S3.

    I still haven't seen any tear apart shots so the question still remains for me.

    Is the internal memory hard wired into the board or is it by way of an internally installed microSD type card? If it is via the card, I see no reason why we couldn't open it p and install a new 32gb microSD card ourselves. That's what I did with my Arrive to move it from 16-32gb. I installed a new card and hard reset, the card was recognized and I then had a 32gb Arrive.
