    What card manufacturers do you guys recommend?
    Stick with the name brands, from reputable retailers. I would avoid buying from sites like Amazon due to all the fakes out there. Places like Wal-Mart or Best Buy would be the only place I'd buy from.

    Been using micro SD cards since my Samsung Note 2 days. That was a loooong time ago. Only difference is my card size keeps getting larger.

    I buy from Amazon itself but not from any sellers that use Amazon.

    I use google photos and Amazon photos to backup my photos for free.

    Ain't waiting on it to be shipped to me.

    I do. I have about 9000 songs on it. Use Poweramp to listen to them. Much easier when upgrading!
    I do the exact same thing, tons of music on my card and use Poweramp to listen. When the Streaming companies offer Eq's with enough customization and sound quality as Poweramp, I will lose the SD card.

    Still my preferred method for saving photos from my camera, although everyone should have a second back up many don't.

    I've pulled SD Cards out of so many broken and damaged phones with data still intact I'll never trust internal storage for anything I don't need backed up.

    I've also witnessed more people cry than I care to remember because I was unable to remove photos from a broken phone. It's alarming how many people move photos to a new phone but NEVER put them on a PC, external hard drive, or on the cloud.

    I have had one phone without it in ten years and I wouldn't buy one without it.
    It sucked not having it P20 Pro, not cool.

    A micro SD slot and replaceable battery were important features when I got my LG V20. Plenty of internal memory for most things, but I put a large music library on an SD card.

    My opinion is manufacturers removed the micro SD slot so they could charge absurd money for more internal memory.

    Ever since the original Motorola Droid in 2009. That one had 500 MB of native storage and the 16GB micro SD card was pre-installed. Earlier than that, December 2004, I bought a Palm Treo 650; the wonder of its age. The same day I went to CompUSA (rest in peace) and bought a pair of 1GB SD cards (the full size cards) for my Treo and the one I bought for my girlfriend. Those 1GB cards went for $100 each. The card in my old Treo holds some vintage files and still functions as new. I've always been intrigued that so much can be stored on those tiny cards. Everything has been backed-up multiple times over the past fifteen years.
    I loved my Treo 650! I still have it but haven't powered it up in years. It was a great little phone back in the day!
    Using a 256GB card for music & picture storage like many here. Amazon is an easy way to backup & just another Prime perk that I use to get my money's worth out of the annual fee.

    I use a micro SD card for my phones. In the Note 10+ is a SanDisk 1TB. Have used 180 GB of it. My Note 9 has a 512 GB and used 142 GB. SD card is useful to keep things off of the Internal Storage.

    When you have your SD Card as storing pictures.

    Why does Google come in and take over the SD card.
    And want you to use Google instead.
