    Hello

    What is the MicroSD card to buy for a Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ (5G) (UK version)?
    What specs are important?

    e.g.

    - Can it handle UHS-II?

    - Do the quoted read & write speeds matter in practice?
    (e.g. does "Up to 160MB/s read and 90MB/s write speeds" sound good or bad?

    - Is being such a large capacity (512GB or even 1TB) going to slow it down compared to say 256GB?

    - Does any of this stuff sound important?
    "4K UHD-ready with UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) and Video Speed Class 30 (V30)"

    - What's the difference between A1 and A2?

    - Do I want MicroSD or "MicroSDXC" ?

    e.g. What about this Integral MicrosSDXC 512GB (sound fast but is 'suspiciously' cheap at GBP 60.96)
    Rated at: "180MB/s read 150MB/s write"
    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Integral-MicroSDXC-Fastest-INMSDX512G-180-150V30/dp/B088HRR8KT/ref=sr_1_11?

    Or this 512GB SanDisk Extreme? (GBP 92)
    "Up to 160MB/s read and 90MB/s write speeds"

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-Extreme-microSDXC-Adapter-Performance/dp/B07P7M6K35/ref=sr_1_9?

    Or this 512GB SanDisk Pro (GBP 116)
    "Up to 170MB/s read and 90MB/s"

    Which "greens"? Samsung MicroSD cards appear to only be "UHS-I" and not "UHS-II"?

    That integral card is excellent value. Seems fast and is professional grade. It isn’t fake as it is sold and dispatched directly from Amazon and I think it is good value.

    Micro SDXC is good. It is used for higher speed and higher storage cards over the normal micro as cards.

    The faster the read and write speed the better. U3 class is currently one of the best classes.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, but what about UHS-I vs UHS-II?

    I am not sure about that difference. But if I were buying that integral would get my money. SanDisk are OK but I have had several SanDisk micro SD fail on me over the years.

    Sorry I didn't see your question. This is what I use in my Note 20 Ultra and Tab S7+, never had an issue.
