Default Ext4

would it be possible to format my sandisk 64gb sdxc into ext4 rather than fat 32? How would I go about doing this? Is there any benefits to gain from ext4 such as a performance gain? Thanks in advance.

Benefit: you can store files larger than 4gb.

Downside: you can't use it with windows.

If you have root then you may can use ntfs filesystem with stickmount. Seacrh for it on playstore and read the description. You will find any regarding info to ntfs there
