    Does anyone know what speeds our Note 4s read/write to/from SD. I'm about to order an SD card, and I would like to get something fast, but I don't want to waste money on a faster card than I can actually use.

    I have put 2 different Sandisk 64gb class 10 cards in mine & both have had issues. I got a Sandisk 64gb Extreme today that I will try with the new VZ Note 4 replacement when it comes. The Class 10 is about $35 & the Extreme is about $75 .... I would get the Extreme from Amazon!

    Cheers, Jon

    I'm leaning towards the Samsung cards. Not sure if the PRO speeds could be reached by the phone or not. I've seen several people on here saying the phone is the bottleneck, but i haven't seen any actual evidence.

    Also, do we already have an internal SD card in the Note 4?

    No, that would be the internal memory

    None of the current phones support the fast UHS-I speeds, so you won't see those 90MB/s read/write speeds. There's no point in getting a fast card unless you intend to remove it from the phone and use a USB 3.0 card reader to do your transferring.

    So what is this measuring? I haven't added an SD card yet.

    Verizon & Samsung don't know either ... they are replacing the phone & I like the speed anyway for my GoPro Hero Black, so I may as well try it with my Note 4 first Not going to put it in my existing Note 4, because one of the cards turned to toast & unusable & the other seems like it's going down the same path!

    sorry.. yes its a-1. I tried that other one major one people use but it doesnt seem to work on my phone at all. like others said.. you will not get 80MB write on phones. From what I have seen 20 or low 20s is about the max. Even though other class 10's should have enough to cover anything on the phone I would like to see how much of a lag there is between one that writes at 20 and one that does at 10. do like a 3-4 min 4K file and see.. who has a 128G and want to test with me? I dont think it just throws it to the sd card.. maybe get on internal ram then processes to sd??..

    Ended up going with the Samsung PRO 64GB card. Delivers today. Will check read/write speeds to see if the phone can actually use the extra speed. Will post results.

    Spent a bunch of time looking at all the micro sdxc cards on amazon. Finally decided to pull the trigger, and just didn't realize I had clicked on the wrong one. They're refunding though.

    Alright, so I got the (correct)SD card in finally. Now I've got a couple of questions.

    First, ExFat is the format I want if I want to be able to transfer files larger than 4GB, correct? If so, will the Note 4 format to this, or must I use my PC?

    Second, now that my SD card is installed, how does the device distribute files to it? Is this done completely manually by me? Or can I tell it which types of files to be stored internally or on the card?

    Storage is memory, secondary memory.
