    how long do samsung usually make people wait before releasing the 64GB versions of their phones?

    Is there a launch date for 65gb note 2 yet?

    For the US, I don't even think they ever released the 64gb SGS 3. There were rumors that it would be released in a black color to signify it being the 64gb version, but I haven't seen it yet.

    Surprisingly, all of the "formal" announcements, for the Note 2 US release, have only mentioned the 16gb version, not even the 32gb version.

    I'm just as curious as you regarding the 64gb versions, as that's the version that I would likely purchase. My only concern with that is, Sprint sold the 32gb SGS3 exclusively through Sprint and I didn't intend on upgrading directly through Sprint, so I hope that 3rd party retailers can offer the higher memory versions (assuming they're even offered).

    I've noticed this too. No one; not even Samsung is talking about capacity higher than 16GB.

    Hi, I'm looking to get the 32GB Note 2, since I think 16GB might be too small for me even if I get the 64GB class 10 micro sd. I install apps, and some large games so I'll need the extra space. I guess I need it to take pictures, possibly put my music directly on the phone too.... I'm from the UK

    Everywhere only talks about a 16GB version? I have to upgrade soon, and would rather not end up with a 16GB version, then i'll have to root it to move applications and there'll be that inconvenience of only having 16GB space, actually 10GB free because Jelly Bean and all the samsung apps will take up allot of space.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Basically I think it might not even make it to release and they use it to capture headlines during prelaunch..

    Yeah that's frustrating cause I'd buy a 64GB one in a second. Hopefully they carry it overseas somewhere and I can get one at some point.

    I'd be right there with you, Jun. This would be the absolute tie breaker. I wouldn't consider any of the other rumored phones, if the 64gb version came out. Even the HTC One X+ w/ 64gb internal that's rumored wouldn't interest me that much (Although, I doubt Sprint actually offers this one, unless it's a Nexus device...like some of the rumors suggest).

    I dunno that I could go to Htc at this point with Samsung doing so much innovating software wise. I love all of the cool features of the GS3 that we'll be getting on the Note 2.

    Not to mention how vastly improved Samsung has gotten with regards to support. Once the SGS 2 made them some money, they really stepped up their game by a lot. If you had asked me 1 year ago, I never would've considered a Samsung phone. What a difference 1 year makes.
  12. JunBringer

    JunBringer Well-Known Member

    I'll second that. First generation Galaxy phones were just a mess but they're really getting their crap together with the GS3 and Note phones. They're just making everything else look like they're behind a few years.

    Yup. I remember almost a 3/4 of a year going by (after release) and Epic owners still hadn't gotten updated to Froyo, while Evo owners had already received multiple updates, which included Froyo 1 month after the Evo was released! On top of that, the GPS was horrid.

    While I still see complaints about the GPS, that won't bother me as much, as long as it works when I need it. Most of the time, I don't even use GPS unless I'm in the car. The rest of the time, I have it off (which is a habit I might change with the Note II, considering the 3100mah battery).

    samsng is launching an ultra fast sd 64gb though so speed should be ok on that one.

    Still no need to buy that since it'll be overpriced. Get this Sandisk Ultra 64GB Class 10 Micro SD Card with SD Adapter - FFP: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories
    Same speed + is much cheaper and comes with a Sd-card adapter.

    But think about it, yes it might be 16gb, but you'll have around 10GB free space since the Operating system and the other Samsung apps and note features will take up space on the device. So you need to fit apps on there unless you root the device and move applications to the microsd card. Remember some games are almost 2GB now..... You can move part of the app without rooting but usually it doesn't work too well. And then you need space to take your pictures and videos.

    Samsung should have made 32GB the smallest size available on the Note 2....
    Although it's still great that it has a micro sd, internal storage is also important.

    By the way I'm new to this forum, so hi :)

    Isnt the samsung card way faster than that Sandisk one though?
  23. keyan333

    keyan333 Well-Known Member

    Not sure, but I'm guessing it'll cost more than double the price, and won't come out until we're well into next year.
