    I have one question. What is better? F2FS or EXT4? I know F2FS was designed for NAND based storage and it also uses more space because it caches. EXT4 was designed for platter based systems, but it just works.

    What are your thoughts and opinion on the matter and what file system do you use?

    What type of application are you asking in reference to? For example, android uses the ext4 file system for the internal memory and a fat file system(fat32 or exfat) for external memory like flash drives and SD cards, so as far as I know F2FS isn't an option and ext4 is only an option for internal memory which is already formatted as ext4. Unless of course you want to partition your SD card to use link2sd in which case you would make the first partition fat32 and the second partition ext4.

    I am using F2FS on my ZMax for Data and System. I am thinking about going back and using my Moto X 2nd Gen and I am wondering if I should use ext4 or F2FS
