    Default External SD Card

    I need a 64GB card for my music.

    Any advice on SDXC or SDHC?
    Does M8 support UHS?

    Yes: I would avoid 64GB cards because an inordinately large percentage of them have manufacturing defects.

    Interesting but I have > 32G music I want to carry around.
    Would plugging into a PC and running a drive error check detect this?
    Any makes better than others?

    And what about differences between SDXC and SDHC. And does M8 support UHS-1?

    So get a 128GB card.

    I haven't heard that it did yet.

    Possibly. However, the overwhelming majority of 64GB cards are baked in one and the same fab on Taiwan (TSMC), afaik.

    And what about differences between SDXC and SDHC. And does M8 support UHS-1?
    Idk, tbh.

    So 128GB cards are more reliable than 64GB?

    Let's put it this way: I've heard of many, many 64GB cards gone wonky, but not yet of 128GB cards.

    I've been using this 64GB SDXC card since I got my M8 back in May. It's been working flawlessly:

    I have a 64GB Class 10 SanDisk MicroSD card in my M8
    works perfectly, no defects
    every person i know that has a 64GB card with defects, it's because they got it from some off-brand company
    trying to cut corners while shopping on eBay/Amazon lol

    Pathetic response from HTC Support
    "When it comes to UHS-1 we can't really tell if M8 supports it or not, we do not have any information regarding that."

    I think the reason behind this is sales volumes. I didn't research but I bet the 64GB out sells the 128GB 100 to 1. So of course there will be more problems just because of how many or out there.
