This is my 3rd Galaxy. I currently have the S5 active. I have problems I've found no good fix for. I've put a new SD card in because it kept telling me the phone was full. But now it's aggravating to access my pictures. Now it won't let me text or email pictures. Unable to attach image. I've read some information on the Samsung Note and it seems the owners of those devices are always so happy. Is it a better device?

Typically, the major difference between the Note and Galaxy is the size. Sure, there is the occasional SoC difference, but size is probably the major thing. As for your issue, I am guessing you have 16 GB of storage? Keep in mind the OS takes some of that, and the S5 took about 8 GB. So, that's about 8 GB for your apps, text messages, system cached data, etc.

This might help for some of the memory issues: http://forums.androidcentral.com/am...w-deal-low-memory-warnings-2.html#post4494703

And I've seen the card as being default for the camera, that's a whole other issue. The pictures aren't easily accessible after setting that default. A lot of my pictures don't turn out. They are totally greyed out. This phone is aggravating. Don't get me wrong, I'm an avid Android user, I'm usually the person other people ask questions. Lately tho, I can't get these two issues cleared up and I need answers.

I'm not sure what to say. It may be an error in the ROM. I myself don't use SD cards any longer after I had 3 fail. I just don't even bother with them. The reason the phone tells you it's full, is there is reserved storage for the OS. If you have any apps that you don't use, I would get rid of them to help free up space. Any text messages with photos, you can consider deleting. Those can take up a lot of room quick.
