    I picked up a 128 GB Micro SD class 10 speed class 1 (PNY) and put it in the phone. I formatted it and migrated the data and apps that would move to the SD card. Then the fun began! Half of the apps would crash or not open and the ones that would took a very long time to open. After playing with it for a day I reformatted to portable and moved everything back to internal. I understand that some apps and not permitted to move to the card. Even apps that gave permission were a mess. Password Keeper, Instagram, Fox News and others were unusable. As soon as I would move the individual app back to internal it would work perfectly. My Fly Delta app would work from the card but would take about 45 seconds to open and another 30 to load the info. The card that I bought met the specs on the Motorola Web site for speed etc. Anyone using Adoptable storage without problems?

    I am using it with a Samsung PRO+ 128GB grade 3. It was the fastest card I could find and the Z still said it was too slow.

    I went with adoptable anyway and I did not get all the issues you did. All my apps are working just fine.

    Maybe try a different brand, could be some compatibility issue with pny.

    Were there any complaints about speed when setting it up? I had complaints about 2 UHS-1 cards.
    I also bought a 64gb Pro+ and it's working pretty well.

    That is true I will try the samsung or sandisk. I am just kind of playing with it. I would like it to work

    I just bought a Sandisk SanDisk Extreme Pro 64 GB Class 10 UHS-I 95 MBps Read MicroSD Memory Card on Amazon. It was a toss up between the Samsung and the Sandisk. Sandisk can be delivered tomorrow. Samsung would be Monday. Amazon Prime wins LOL

    @travaz I just tried Instagram and Fox News and both worked for me.

    Class 10 and UHS-1 are the same minumum speed. UHS-3 triples that.
    But in all actuality it seems if you do use adoptabe storage you're "giving away" the 32gb internal as only some apps and cache use it and it's inaccessible.

    But like you i had to get it working.

    I appreciate the info and I just got the card it is a UHS-3. I am starting to think that it is the PNY card. I am thinking of doing a FDR and then starting over with the card. I haven't had the device very long so there is not that much stuff on it. When ever I get a new device I always take a week or two to migrate everything over.

    Update for anyone wanting to use adoptive storage. I got the UHS 3 Sandisk 64GB extreme pro card and installed it. i formatted it for adoptive storage and migrated data. i then went in and moved every app manually that was able to move. I did not do an FDR. When I went to format the card it said you card is too slow to use. If you get that ignore it. With the PNY card I got no such warning and it worked poorly. I got everything moved and did a power off and restart. All my games and apps work just fine now. I say the PNY was not capable or was faulty. Many of my apps crashed and would not open. With the Sandisk everything works flawlessly. I do see a very slight delay when i open apps but it is very slight and no problem. SO Kudo's to fr4nk1yn for suggesting the card change.

    I am using the SanDisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD. It also said it was too slow but I ignored it. I made it adaptable. So far, the only things I moved back to internal storage were apps I needed Widgets for and Facebook, which seemed very slow when opening (the F logo kept fading in and out for 5-12 seconds before opening)...The card is rated:

    Performance/speed:Up to 90MB/s read speed, write speed lower)
    Class 10 for Full HD video (1920x1080)

    I'm using the card I got from the note 7 promotion and it works fine. It's a class 10 I believe. Another nice thing is when I download apps if they can go on the card they automatically do.

    You need a card rated as U3. It should be x3 faster than the more common U1 cards.

    U1 OR U3?

    The first question is by far and away the most common today, and asks to find the difference between U1 and U3 rated*SD cards. What is being asked here is what the difference is between UHS-1 Class 1 and Class 3 cards. In simple terms, UHS-1 Class 1 has a min write speed of 10MB/s, and Class 3 has a min write speed of 30MB/s, and we’re talking also here about increased sustained write speed.

    How's everyone doing with their Adoptable Storage? The only problems I seem to have is with 60fps video. I tend to lose audio syncing. Not sure if this is common with internal storage or not.

    I tried AS for about a day. I realized that everything that had to do with storage had a several-second lag while I had it on. I have this:

    and I expected it to blaze. But no...

    I've had no additional lag using it as adoptable storage. It may lag compared to using internal storage but I'm not seeing it...

    Some people even with fast cards have had issues. YMMV.

    Oh, I can agree with that...and I am sure it is faster without using it...but 32GB is just not enough for me with the amount of photo/videos I do...sure I offload them to my PC for backup locally and to cloud but like the have breathing room.

    Can't you store photos, video, and audio to SD cards when you format as portable?

    I use a 64GB Samsung PRO+ microSD card as Portable storage. I don't trust Adoptable storage, even with a fast card.
