But none of them will work in their Galaxy S6 cause they took that option away pfft.
Yep. Would have been a great shoe-in to support U3 on the S6 so you could do continual 4K recording rather than the 5min bursts they currently allow.

The 5 minute clips are nothing to do with the memory speed, its supposed to be issues with CPUs overheating.

Its a bit confusing actually seeing as you can keep recording 5 minute clips indefinitely, does a second or two of inactivity REALLY allow the CPU to stay significantly cooler?

Its also puzzling that the Note 4 suffers the same issue as the Note 3. I was really disappointed to find the 5 minute limit remained when I upgraded.

I also don't understand why Android (or at least Samsung) limits video recording length to the 4GB FAT32 filesize limit. Is it really that hard to dynamically start on a new file once you reached the file size limit?

Nothing new here. I just ordered a SanDisk 64GB Extreme PRO UHS-I microSDXC Memory Card (U3, Class 10). Max. Read Speed: 95 MB/s
Max. Write Speed: 90 MB/s. Its just Samsung trying to catch up in the market place.

I am a professional photographer and I only use the high end sdxc cards in my camera. In a year they will have terabyte cards for 4k.
