    I bought a new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 (AT&T) - N900A. I also just bought a " SanDisk Extreme 64 GB microSDXC Class 10 UHS-I Memory Card with Adapter (SDSDQX-064G-U46A) " Speed Performance: Up to 80/50MB/s read/write speed

    Please give me a advice about " should I play or run all apps on (internal memory of note 3) or (external memory - SanDisk Extreme 64 GB - Up to 80/50MB/s read/write speed ) ?

    I don't know what is speed (read and write) on note 3. Anybody know about that?

    Note 3 has USB 3.0, does it make all the apps run or play faster?

    1) The Note3 has so much internal storage that you have to be a real software junkie to run out of internal space. I've been looking for stuff to download to mine, just to see how much junk I can put on it, and still have loads of internal space left.

    2) The Note3 is fast. USB 3 (vs 2) doesn't change that for playing apps that are in the phone. It will speed up transferring files to and from your computer.

    3) A Class10 card is as fast as they get right now, but with 16GB internal, it's going to be some time before you need the extra space. I wouldn't start worrying about that yet.

    I just checked my storage. Out of 32GB total, I still have 22.96GB available, and that's with all sports of junk I tried, didn't like and haven't deleted yet. I don't store movies on my phone, but an .avi movie can be less than 1GB, so even with a few movies there's still plenty of internal space.

    As far as speed, unless you're doing intense scientific calculations, even a Class6 SD card is fast enough to play a movie. You've got a Cadillac and you're worrying about whether the sticker on the license plate is going to make the ride bumpy. Relax and enjoy your Note3.
