Where are samsung notes stored on android?

Samsung notes are usually stored in a phone internal storage or probably the location which a user selected in saving the notes file.

Previously, Samsung notes app  has it’s provisioned folder where all saved notes are stored in the folder. Since the last six updates and few months back, the notes are saved in the location which the user selected.

That is to say there’s no folder in the internal storage that save these samsung notes in an android phone. To view the notes, you simply have to open file app, tap on the internal storage and scroll below the folders.

Right there you will see all your samsung notes.

Let me explain a bit more in details where are samsung notes files stored on android phone.

Example

Let’s say you want to make a note on your samsung note app and have the note saved in a pdf format.

First, you have to open the Samsung notes app on your android phone, tap on the light red pen button to create a new note.

Give your note a heading or a title, and move down to the body of note. Write all you need to write and there’s the moment in saving the note.

Immediately you pressed the back button, the note will be automatically saved. But you won’t see it anywhere in your android phone including in the internal storage or the SD card until you saved the notes as a file.

Now what you going to do is to tap on the hamburger menu, tap on save as file just like on the picture below.

It is then left for you to select the folder which you want the note file to be saved or probably create a new folder for the file or even tap on the option to save the note in your SD card.
