Galaxy Note 2 64g internal storage?

by JulioNicoletti / October 31, 2012 6:27 AM PDT

I could have sworn I saw the 64g internal storage option for the Galaxy Note 2, but it seems like all the carriers (in canada) only have it in 16g. 16 is pretty useless and will fill up fast if I plan on installing games, not to mention I have 64g of music.

These are my two choices so far:
1.) Have an all-in-one media center that I can take with me anywhere by getting the note 2 (64g internal +64g sd card)

2.) Get an iPhone 16g 4s (its free), and have a separate media player.

So is there a 64gigabyte version available in Canada? And if there is, can I expand it with a 64gig sd card to 128gigs?

Then this is not for you.

The carriers select the models they want and the maker has little to say about it. I can explain why this is, but I'm sure you have heard it before.

Keep shopping?

If a 64GB NoteII is acquired, will it utilize all storage with a 16GB carrier?

Good question.

If the folk that make and sell don't talk to you, keep shopping. There are so many gotcha's about bringing your own device to a carrier I can't possibly write it all down here. While it's a safe bet you'll get more storage some folk have exploded when some of the 64GB is used by the device and file system overhead. Not sure how much computer background you have to understand that issue.

I know a fair amount about technology, including computers. I will have more storage capacity occupied by video and pictures than apps. I take it I am not apt to get a straight answer from an ordinary sales person at a vendors? I have read how one can root a system and cause the microchip to be seen as 'internal storage.' That sounds like it might be a swap and the bona-fide internal storage becomes seen as 'add on?"

I can't discuss that. It's a tar pit of issues, problems and no one I know finds support for that. Even those that create such are often writing "use at your own risk."

Earlier you indicated some systems with 64GB internal storage enabled by 16GB carrier tend to 'blow up.' Do any work correctly?

I meant the user/owner blows up.

The most recent occurrence was the owner found ICS to install and the e-reader app is now failing. And a hard fail too. My advice was to go back since it looks to be an out of band release, or not from the carrier. They are unlikely to find either maker or carrier to fix this since it's not a release either put out for them.

This has also lead me to advise folk to avoid tablets when the tablet is running an older version and they HOPE for an update. Some think I'm nuts but folk bring me their troubles so this is why I offer such advice.

Hope this clears up a few things.
