The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 is loved by the majority of owners and this phablet has proven to be the most successful to date, although it is not without problems. Even after all the love that is shared when people talk about the Galaxy Note 2, there are a few issues that need fixing either with software improvements, new storage models, or when Samsung launch the Galaxy Note 3 this year. Hearing about the possibility of new Galaxy Note 2 colors a few days ago only made some people dream about other changes, which included bigger storage sizes for a better user experience.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 apps on an SD card – this is a problem we touched on a couple of months ago, and we highlighted a few issues our readers had when they wanted to use a 64GB SD card and apps. The Galaxy Note 2 comes with 16GB of memory in the UK/US, although this is even less after actual formatting, but some people felt that the microSD card would solve any issues considering it supports up to 64GB of storage expansion.
The reality is that you can use this extra storage for a number of things, but not to move apps to the SD card and run them from there. You can read about the SD card desires in more detail here, which includes PR readers pointing out this is a limitation of Jelly Bean and the real answer would come with bigger storage models of the Galaxy Note 2.
There had been an app called “Apps2SD” that helped people with putting apps on SD cards, although a few users point out that this software is “no longer native to Android“, which is due to running “MTP instead of UMS“.
Samsung Galaxy Note 2 demanded in 32GB and 64GB – this forum started a few weeks ago on Verizon’s website, and has recent posts from just a few days ago as well. The messages here and those that we’ve received clearly show a demand for the Galaxy Note 2 in 32GB, 64GB, or bigger memory sizes.
Samsung’s advertising has pointed to 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB versions of the Galaxy Note 2. The problem is they’ve not become available in the United States, and it now seems that Samsung are focusing on the Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4.
Some people have been holding out from purchasing the Galaxy Note 2 in the hope of a bigger storage size. At the time of writing we’ve only heard about 32GB and 64GB models being sold in South Korea.
Do you expect Samsung to sell a 32GB/64GB Galaxy Note 2 in the US, or will this bigger storage size arrive with the Galaxy Note 3? In our opinion it seems a little late now, and a better solution for existing owners would be gained from Android solutions for running apps on SD cards. If you’re planning on upgrading to the Galaxy Note 3, then you can almost definitely count on much bigger storage sizes and less problems next generation.
