Is Nokia 8 going to support it for the micro SD card? Or do I have to return the device? I only have 3 weeks left to to return it.
Thank you buddy for your fast reply, but I had already tried that app: it does not work with the micro sd card.
Too bad that such a good hardware meets such a bad software...
It's also a shame that customers, after spending 600 euros on a phone, aren't even given the chance to mod the software to make up for its maker's laziness...
I'm definitely returning it and buying something else.
All my previous smartphones supported ntfs just fine, and I used it, so why do I have to take a step backwards? It's 2018, 4k video recording is here (and not only), so this whole blabbering about standards is totally useless and out of place (and time).
Thank you for your reply.
I tried, it doesn't work. The card I tried is actually a micro SDXC. I meant that Nokia 8 does not support normal sized SDXC cards, which don't fit in.
EVERYTIME I tried to format the card with something else other than the phone, it would report "damaged card".
In a few words, Nokia want their customers to be stuck in the 90's (FAT32 was released in 1996).
I'm returning the device as fast as the lightning, and for the same price getting a much better device.
Thank you mate for your effort to help me out.
You're right, man, but I think that if they had not advertised their phone as supportive of the SDXC standard, many less people would have bought it. Never forget that in the commerce world, customers are often doomed to be raked over a cheese grater :-D
I have Samsung and Honor smartphones, and Asus and Huawei tablets, none of which has this absurd problem. My next purchase is not going to have it either, I checked out its features.
Out of curiosity, what Samsung phone did you have?
The funny thing is that my Samsung phone is an S4 too, and it never gave me any kind of problems, except for the low internal memory (16gb, only 9gb usable). I used at first a 64gb micro SDXC card, later replaced by a 200gb micro SDXC card (both cards are Sandisk).
I used to move the installation folders of the installed apps from the internal memory to the cards to make room for the new apps, so I could overcome the problem of the low internal memory.
It lasted almost five years: bought it at launch, stopped booting 3 months ago :-(
You should have asked for a replacement, it was clearly faulty...
However almost all manufacturers abandon their older models like Samsung do: it's called planned obsolescence. In the case of Nokia and FAT32, it's called EXTREME obsolescence :-D :-D
In fact I found out about it 5 days after I had bought the device. It left me speechless.
They don't pay license fees, yet they charge customers 600 euros (or more) for a smartphone whose external memory file system technology dates back to the 90's...
My next device supports exFAT for the external memory, this time I will not get caught unprepared and off guard again.
