Another feature that distinguishes the Samsung Galaxy Note10 from other smartphones is the file system used in this smartphone.

Before we start talking about these two file systems, let's give a little explanation of what the file system is. The file system has the same functionality on both computers and smartphones. It determines how files are stored in device memory and how to reuse stored data. There are different file systems and these different systems offer different advantages to the users.

Samsung's F2FS file system was actually used by some phone manufacturers, such as OnePlus. Later, the phone manufacturers returned to the EXT4 file system and are still a favorite of many manufacturers.


In a very simple way, the difference between F2FS and EXT4 file systems, to mention the EXT4 is a very rooted system, this system does not need to receive updates. The system continues to work properly and is extremely stable. Samsung's F2FS file system can still receive major updates, which is a troublesome process for the Android platform. When combined with the UFS 3.0 system, this system offers a significant performance boost. This means high speed.


The Secret of the Mysterious Hole Found in Samsung Galaxy Note10

Samsung did not explain why it uses this file system on the Galaxy Note10. However, if Samsung finds what it expects from both the Galaxy Note10 and the Galaxy Fold, it can use the file system on flagships in a later manner. In addition, it is theoretically possible to switch to this file system on flagships that were introduced earlier, but in practice it is almost impossible. The reason for this is a huge update that Samsung will offer users if they want to make such a change. In order for this update to be installed by users, the storage space of the phones needs to be emptied over a large area. However, this situation is not possible.
