    No worries.. I used to be an apple fanboy from the start till I got tired of waiting for a larger phone back in 2010. Anyway, allot of what I just posted was some of the new stuff I read about not too long ago. As for your question I doubt you will see any difference which ever you choose. Once its in the phone it will be more then enough as long as you dont get the few bad apples.. haha
    Thanks for the info, what are the bad apples that you are referring to? Bad sd cards that some people say they are having troubles with either read or write?

    just like anything made your going to have DOAs or things with issues. It may not be a clear cut issue out of the box so test everything you can. I have been lucky in the SD department. out of all the times I think I only had one go bad on me, but lucky I did a back up not to long ago. I have always stayed with the main brands with SD cards. Watch out for the Chinese knockoffs and back up often.

    That is what i did... they were cool about it
    I would like to thank everyone for the advice. I decided to go with the Samsung Pro 64 GB. This is 4 times more room than I have now. This will work till they come out with a 128 gb micro card that is better price. Then I'll give this one to the hubby. And I'll get me a 128 GB. Now with that...Bowhunter I seen it the other day for $52 also but....I found the card on Amazon today for $44.99 and Best Buy matched no problems (we were by one today and I picked it up). Yes siree only $45 bucks for the PRO card. I was thrilled. And just to mention, the rep at Best Buy repeated what I have heard several people, she said in their experience there at Best Buy, the Samsung Card just seems to work better with Samsung products. She said you could use the other brands, they have just noticed some better performance using Samsung especially the Pro version. So now all I need is my NOTE 4 from Verizon. I love my Note 3 which like I said is going to stay with but my hubby is getting it, and the Note 4 is coming to me whoooohoooooo.

    You should not have to format the micro SD card for use in an Android phone. If you do format use extFat. My understanding is that Android OS doesn't do NFTS which is a MS Windows specific file format.

    I actually ended up buying one of these yesterday. I had ordered that Transcend card but failed to realize it wasn't a MicroSD and was a full sized SD. !!! It was categorized on Amazon as MicroSD, but I really should have looked at the pictures more carefully...

    ANYWAY!!! The Samsung Pro 64GB arrives today and I can't wait to put it in my phone... it's definitely going to come in handy on my flight to/from Japan next month. Movies, ya'll.

    So yesterday I had to get a RMA from Sandisk to return a red/grey Ultra 64 GB for replacement for the SECOND time. Each time I had put about 40 gigabytes of data on the SD card when it quit reading and writing. First time in my Note 2 it would not write or read or format or erase the data on the card. Snapped it in two and sent it back, recieved the replacement 2 weeks later. All was fine untill I took the card out of my Note 2 with about 40 gigabytes of data on it put it in my new Note 4 and it mounted and unmounted continuously. Formatted the card and it appeared to work fine. Loaded it up with 40 gigabytes of music, videos and books and it began mounting and unmounting again. We will see in two weeks when I get the replacement. 9 years from now when the warranty runs out hopefully Sandisk will have figured it out.

    I have already preordered my Note 4 (I wouldn't give up my Note 3 but hubby needed a new phone so he is taking my note 3 and I am getting his upgrade Note 4 hehehe). However, I am so confused on the SD card situation. I know they support up to a 128 MB on the sd card but I want to get a good one. Some say only get the Sandisk branch. A Besy Buy employee said the Pny branch is very good and that is all he uses. While I was buy one I want to get the max as a just in case while I was spending the money but heard good and bad about that. Someone on here said the write speed of the Note 4 is only 30 gb so no need to buy a better card because it cant keep up with it anyway. See confused I am!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I need some good information to help me out as I have seen some really good deals esp on Best Buy on a 64 gb extreme Sandisk for like $54.99. But then the Pny 128 gb I have seen for 60 some bucks. Decisions decisions HELP!!!!!!!!!!
    You get better deals on Amazon. You can get an SD card for half the price.

    definitely watch who you buy sd cards from on ebay. my husband has bought a couple bad ones on ebay they would say 64gb but it quit working after he would get to the 29gb mark which meant it was not a true 64gb its a fake. he just recently bought the samsung evo 64gb and is loving it. the sandisk sd cards are good too but they are the worst about being fake.

    Anyone with half a brain should realize that $15 for a 64GB SanDisk Ultra on ebay definitely isn't legitimate. Buy from reputable sources.

    I decided to go with this one as well. How long did Amazon say you will receive yours? I ordered mines yesterday and it still says "Processing to ship"

    2 questions......... 1) What is the difference between the Samsung Pro and the Samsung EVO Micro SD card? 2) Is one better than than the other? Best buy has a sale going on on these SD cards and I have a $15 coupon to use. 32 gig pro is on sale for 26 bucks and the 64 gig pro is on sale for 80.

    What phone did u have Before ?
    If you had the Note 3 or S5 then you can Transfrer all to deskto & but it ALL together on new card
    cos it has a USB 3.0

    but if you have a USB 2.0 like in the new Noite 4
    then you better do it 1 by1
    One folder at a time cos its real slow

    Cant imagine what about the people who have to do 64gb to 128gb
    that will take for ever

    Make or research about the SD card information it will help and please if you are confused or are you confused to buy a 128MB make your money full so you will not ran out like if you bought the SD card to your home then it is expired you will better need the answer to the manufacturer or ask why....

    Just an update, this card works fine. http://www.sandisk.com/about-sandisk...card-at-128gb/ I have yet to shoot some UHD video to see how well it writes but will report back later.

    One thing I've noticed in some videos shot with cell phones in 4K is that there is some choppiness. I'm not sure if that's the write speeds of the cards being used, but I suspect it is.
