I bought the Sandisk 128gb microSDXC card from Amazon.com for $120. Installed it and so far everything looks OK. I just started to load it up.

That's good to know! I mainly use the SD card for pictures, videos and music so this works for me! Thanks for being the guinea pig, 😆

Did we have have any doubt that the beast of a phablet would handle a beast of a micro SD card? That's rhetorical of course. Good news for the storage needy!

Re: 128gb microSDXC card works on the note 3!

when did you make your order? I have been looking at this card for the last week and it has been on backorder and listed as shipping in 4 to 6 weeks. I have been thinking about putting in an order anyway because I now that, sometimes, Amazon gets stock in and ships earlier on items listed as backordered.

Thanks.

Thanks. When you ordered, did it indicate an anticipated shipping time? Right now it says "within 4 to 6 weeks". Just curious if you received yours within the estimated timeframe or sooner.

In case you don't know yet, 4.4 KitKat messes up reading and writing to the external SDcard unless you're rooted and can modify platform.xml. I wish I could go back to 4.3 Jelly Bean.

If you come across a read/write speed test app that has been updated to work, let me know please. I'm supposed to be testing one and it's hard when none of the developers have updated their apps for KitKat.

Messed up = fixed a glaring security hole that allowed any app to write to any folder on an entire partition.

The same people were saying the same sky-is-falling nonsense when 4.1 changed how SD cards were treated, yet developers updated their apps and all was well.

What is the best speed test app for 4.3?

LOL. I dunno. I just tried them all, and they all hang trying to write a file to the SD card because they haven't been updated for the new API

Dude, please keep posting screenshots here. My N3 is on KitKat, and I can use your results for the blog post. :)

Sure thing. One of the "Advantages" of being on Verizon is that more apps are updated before a version update is pushed, since Verizon usually is one of the last to update
