This makes no sense, exFat can hold any file size you ever need same as NTFS. ExFat is also faster for larger files and cluster sizes, since by design it has less overhead compared to NTFS. The main feature of NTFS is its robustness, which all journaling based file system share. The other main features would be better ACL and compression support, which is largely irrelevant in our scenario. Btw there is on mayor aspect everyone seem to ignore here! NTFS is robust and stable on Windows and i recommend using it over exFat if possible, yet we are talking about Android (Linux) here. The NTFS code in linux/Android is not maintained by Microsoft, isn't the Android NTFS driver the one from Paragon Software? So no, i actually would prefer exFat over NTFS on Android/Linux for now, since the Paragon NTFS driver is relatively new to Linux/Android. Yes its considered stable, but while the exFat driver is also not from Microsoft, just from a sheer software implementation point of view, there is much less to screw-up on writing a exFat driver than a NTFS one. So on Android/Linux what you actually want is ext3/4, F2FS or ZFS/BTRFS, so a mature Linux kernel native filesystem.
