    Any Chance S4 Firmware Update Coming to Note 2

    I just read on CNet that Samsung is going to release a firmware update to S4 that will allow apps to be moved to an SD card after users complained about the 16gb models having only 9gb or so of storage left after the OS storage. I sure hope the do the same for the Note 2.

    Keep in mind that there was a reason, in Samsung's mind, to do that for the S4 because there were so many complaints that the operating system and stock apps were taking up so much of the 16 GB of memory. And the way I read what they're going to do I'm not certain that moving apps to SD will be available for all apps. With that said, who knows, they may release it for the Note as well

    They messed up big time. I told verizon to release a 32gig one. I hope the note 3 has 32gig available or I wont upgrade.

    I hope we get this for the Note 2. I need to move my Root Uninstaller to SD because my Backups are chewing up the internal memory. I want to stick with a stock rom for now and all I used was CASUAL on mine.
