    How do I go about telling the Note 3 to format the MicroSDHC card I put in? I was expecting it to spring up with a menu after I installed it...

    Try to format the SD card while inserted in the device, follow these steps:

    1. From any Home screen, tap the Menu key. 2. Tap Settings. 3. Tap Storage. 4. Under 'SD card,' tap Format SD card. 5. Tap Format SD card again to confirm. Follow any additional prompts.

    The Note 3 is rated to accept 64 GB cards. Higher than that? Doubtful it will take a 128 GB card. If you can even afford one, feel free to try it out and let us know your findings!

    Congrats on 1500 posts! :D

    Someone told you wrong. This is how fallacious rumors proliferate. The "red and grey" cards work fine.

    64GB cards work fine in recent smartphones. The Note 3 will support UHS I Cards (no guarantee on if it will take advantage of the extra speed optimization, however the card will function and at an extremely high level)
    As Drex was saying in the other very similar Note 3 thread, 64GB and UHS I cards work fine in phones up to 2 years old and older (I can echo these thoughts in my case Evo 3D, Evo 4G LTE). I have had both the High Speed and Ultra High Speed [UHS] classification versions, as well as HC and XC cards.

    128GB cards will work fine too, as they are built on the same specification standards of SDXC that the 64GB cards are designed and engineered on. They also have the same exFAT filesystem. The Android environment is produced to handle the filesystem and subsequently the capacity there-in.

    Browse this site, and bookmark it, there is alot of good info to take in: | The SDCard Association

    No need to worry about 128GB compatibility. It will work. NZTechFreak (yeah, the same guy that was able to test the Note 3 early and posted about it here on AF) will no doubt have one once they are released, and before many of us will be able get one to or be willing to pay to get one. He lives closer to the source and will see them on the market before we will. (32GB -> 64GB was a greater change as it was the big move from HC -> XC and a filesystem FAT32 -> exFAT change but that was quickly shown to be a non-factor)

    I went over to his NZTTechFreak's post but didn't see anything about a 128 GB microSDXC card working. Did I miss something? Will the Note 3 utilize the entire 128 GB's?

    Be great if it does work! Thanks!!!

    Quick question

    I got the Sandisk card from Amazon. Should I return it to get the Samsung

    Is there really going to be a difference in quality and longevity between the two?
