    Hi, i just got me the pure edition set to arrive on thursday, which is a major update from moto x 2013. However, what sd card should i get? I want a top notch card that has very fast read and write speeds, is around 64gb (i heard the 128 isnt that good performance wise), and is reliable, such as not locking up on the user and doesnt quit out after a month. Can someone give me a suggestion or suggestions?

    Hey, so im about to order the Pure Edition, is there anything that cant be put on the microsd card? Like, will i run out of room for apps if i only get the lowest storage capacity (16gb). I plan on getting a 64gb card before i actually get the program.

    None for me so far -- I snagged the 64 GB version. I won't fill it for a long time lol.

    Normally though I use Sandisk.

    200GB Sandisk that was on sale for $!50 at Amazon (183GB available). Got the card loaded up just to test it's efficiency and working fine with all media thrown at it including my Gear VR Should work fine in the Pure. Whenever I actually get it.....

    I guess it's personal preference but I've always used SanDisk. I'd recommend at least a Class 10 though. You can always find deals on them online.

    On a side note, when I switch devices I send all my data to the pc, then format the card with the new device and then copy the data back. Is this needed? Who knows but I have zero issues.

    Just to be clear(for my FYI) , i thought the max size SD card for the Moto Pure is 128GB. I know you can put any size in but it will only read 128GB ?

    It should have no problem, since the memory addressing design of the card is no different than going from 64GB to 128GB. This is one of the reasons there is no 256GB micro sd yet, since apparently there would be a compatibility issue due to current fabrication of micro sd memory. It works at least with the one year old Note 4 and GalaxyTab 8.4S.

    Yes. Apps are not meant to be on the SD card. There are ways to do it, but while you'll find people on various forums who swear by it, I've found that every single time, it's exactly when issues arise on the phone. As soon as you start putting apps on the SD card. There are rumors going around that Android M will handle things differently and treat all storage as one storage space, so then you'd assume it would maybe be more OK? But that's just speculation. So as the phone ships, 16gb (less really... I'm not sure how much of that is actually usable) is all you'll ever have for actual apps. The SD card can get everything else... Music, pictures, etc etc.

    Currently using an LG G3 and I've been using this 32gb SD card that came free with the HTC Thunderbolt lol ... Guess I should finally step that up when I get my Moto X.

    The largest and fastest you can afford. Always stick to the big names though. Samsung have a cheap fast range out now.

    SDXC is SDXC. If it works with a 64GB SDXC, it'll work with any size of SDXC. The same applies to SDHC and SD. The important aspect is rather the phone supports exFAT and/or FAT32. Formatting a card to exFAT(the default file system for SDXC cards) has the benefit of having an essentially no file size limit* other than the cards capacity. FAT32 limits individual file size to 4GB. Also, phones that say they only support 32GB max or SDHC will still accept SDXC cards if fotmatted to FAT32.

    *for now and for a very long time to come.

    Sandisk 200GB exFAT format. Works great. Got when on sale for $150. Took it out of my Note 4 and straight into the Pure.
