I haven't found anything that specifically says what is the largest recognizable size microSDXC card will fit in our Note2's? Everyone talks about the 32gb cards but I was wondering if a 64gb will work in it ? I'd hate to spend that money on a 64gb card only to find out it isn't recognized by the phone.

Also, what's the difference between the SDHC and SDXC cards? is it just a capacity thing?----------never mind Wiki explained it to me...


Thanks

Thanks for confirming the XC's can be used. Did you jave to reformat it before you were able to use it or did our phone recognize the exFAT format?

I have a 64gb sdxc as well. Sdhc is class 6 speed, sdxc is class 10 speed. That's the only difference

Nope . Just put it in the phone and was good to go. 64gb has to be exfat. I did not have to format. SanDisk 64 XC from amazon.

Im not sure. The Windows I was referring to was WindowsPhone. The HTC Arrive that I moved over from uses a MicroSD card for it's memory. It came with 16gb and I replaced it with a 32gb card. Only problem is that, when you install a new card, it locks the card to the phone and I can't seem to get it re formatted to reuse on something else now.
