If you could find the extreme 64GB then go for it. 80MB\s write and 50MB\s read speeds on the extreme certainly beats 30mb\s on the ultra any day.
patoos & orijahnal,
I tried to find out the Note 3's max speed for writing to the memory card, yesterday, by talking to people at both SanDisk and Samsung. Neither place was able to give me an answer(!).
Caution on the Samsung card: I notice it quotes 20 MB/s, which is very low for that class of card. More in line with off-brand numbers.
I've always liked the SanDisk brand (for my photography needs). In fact, I've already purchased the Ultra card (64GB) but I'm concerned that it'll be too slow. (After reading some posts in this long thread...) Nothing concrete, just speculation.
Since I've already received my card, and since nobody can give me a good answer, I'm going to try it on my new phone tomorrow, and see if it handles the write-speed required for highest quality video. I'll post my results here.
If it doesn't work, I'd get the Extreme.
Got some good news to share for the folks that want the Galaxy Gear. I went over the on the Telus site & they have the deal!!. So i am sure Rogers & Bell will do the same.
I went to check a new activation, then added the plan & it showed me the Galaxy gear for $329 but at check out it was $229. So the $100 comes off the galaxy gear!
Also it says " Until Oct. 31: Get $100 off Samsung GALAXY Gear™ with GALAXY Note 3 purchase"
Hopefully Rogers adds it soon!!
BTW Telus has the Samsung OEM Leather View Flip for $64.99 & Samsung OEM Leather Flip for $49.99.
Hello everyone! Rogers has officially launched the Note 3!
Mobile syrup was correct in the pricing!! It's $249.99 on a 2 year plan and $699.99 outright. Please keep in mind Rogers stores to add an extra $50 so it will be $750 instead. Cheap tho!
