    ULTRA 64GB
    EXTREME 64GB
    EXTREME PRO 64GB

    I have found two things....... one that going all the way to 64...sore of creates problems....I went down to 32.... and the other thing is that for me and for what I have read.... Samsung is the best SD card... it only makes sense that if you have a Samsung phone...use a Samsung card ....

    Thanks for the reply. Many people are using sandisk cards so I'll go for it. I know what you mean but still sandisks are the best when it comes to speed/writing

    Well, remember that it is not the brand what makes the best on speed/writing, but the Class of the card. If you choose a class 2 in comparison to a class 10 not matter what the brand is, the speed is not going to be equal..............

    But not all cards within the class are created equal.

    I would suggest the Extreme or Extreme Pro. If it were me I'd go with the Extreme Pro.

    I have the 64GB Sandisk ultra and it has worked flawlessly for over a year. I used it in my Note 1 and moved it to my Note 3 when i got it. I have heard about some production problems that caused the first few batches to have issues after sometime, but nothing beyond that. The ultra is probably good enough for the phone. From what I have the phone can't push data to the card fast enough to even take advantage of the ultra's speed much less the other ones. This is a limitation of the card reader in the phone and nothing else. Basically it can't really exceed the speed of Class 10 cards no matter what you do.

    The biggest issue with these Micro sd cards are counterfiet cards. Make sure you get it from somewhere reasonable. I would trust newegg, but there are allot floating around from third party retailers that don't seem to be authentic. So if you order from newegg make sure it is from newegg proper and not some third party retailer selling through neweggs site.

    The Ultra would be perfect for the phone if you get one that is trouble-free. After I went through 2 of them failing I switched to the Extreme and was trouble-free.

    In many reviews Sandisk cards have been found to well outpace their class speed and run faster then many faster classed cards

    Deffinately, I had a 32GB Lexar Class 10 card and when it came down to it, it ran slower then my 8GB class 6 card from Sandisk

    Very true. Like I said I have been farily lucky with it. It may have something to do with how I use the card. Mine has been flawless. I would say also look at the cost, if it isn't much more get the better ones. You will always be able to use it in something else later that can take advantage of the extra speed.

    I have a Sandisk ultra that may need to be replaced for a 2nd time. That enough has made me not consider Sandisk for future purchases.

    Base on other comments in other articles I bought a Samsung class6 32gb. .. a guy explained me that it would be safer if I have 32gb of storage.
