Does Android even use ext3? Aren't there file-systems just better for flash storage one expects on mobile devices?

At least my Galaxy S4 does. AFAIR they abandoned some flash-specific FS (forgot which) in favour of EXT4 because its performance on multi-core systems is better.

Samsung Galaxy SI/II had a bastardized version of FAT32 - they added Unix permission support and a couple of other features.

Ugh.

My Galaxy S2 does too (at least with Cyanogenmod). My old Acer Liquid MT, initially shipped with Froyo and later upgraded to Gingerbread, used YAFFS.
