The other big FAIL was that Samsung's version of Android didn't allow storing apps, etc. on the removable mSD card. Since Android takes up so much room on the internal 16GB memory this is ridiculous. I found a hack, a script, that somehow swaps the memory location of the external card with the internal memory 'card' thus fooling the system. After installing the script my Note 2 reported 64GB internal memory and 16GB external memory. That script is still working today.

What a shame that that little "Hack" no longer works under KitKat, and is probably Seven Sheets to the Wind by now on Lolipop. Google must really want SanDisk and, co. to go fourth and multiply... As they say...
