    I use them when I travel. I download several movies into them and then when I'm in a area where there is little or no cloud/internet access, I have my movies and can fully utilize my internal storage on my trip. Plus, I have the SD cards in a wallet separated by genre and I can switch out and see whatever I want, when and where ever I want. They do indeed serve a purpose.

    Do Not move your apps to memory card on note 10
    Internal memory on note 10 is ufs 3.0 Wich is 5 times faster than your external storage
    You'll slow down your phone , plus with 256 gb at least + sd card , there's no need to transfer the apps even if you have 500 apps on your phone
    Here's a memory comparison

    Not only this, but apps constantly write to their storage locations, which will cause an SD card to corrupt prematurely. It's so risky that even in the photography world, they recommend reformatting the card between sessions instead of deleting the photos. The reformat only rewrites the registration files, leaving the actual photo data alone, and thus saving write cycles.

    I am using my SD card. I have so many photos that I've kept from previous phones that it would take forever to transfer them between devices. Just moving the SD card from one device to the other is so much easier.
    That's what I thought to until I lost 5,600+ pictures during a phone swap. I'll never use an SD card again. With 256gb of base storage I'll have 4 times the storage I have ever used.

    If I were to use one it would be strictly be for media from apps. Things I could replace.

    Photos? Hell no.

    Out of curiosity, but does the note 10 + support this card?

    https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=19sRSZHa

    Would this be a better replacement as a better micro sd card to use instead? I have a 512GB SD card and I do tend to take lots of footage and I do editing as well, but would this card work with the 10+ for everyday use?

    Google photos is an awesome back up.

    UFS cards are only compatible with devices supporting UFS cards. I don't think the N10+ supports it. I could be wrong though.

    When are Samsung phones going to be able to read ufs cards?
    Why are we still suck with SD cards if the portable ufs cards has been in Samsung hands for 3 years
    Samsung takes the Universal Flash Storage standard to the next level with some new memory cards https://www.androidcentral.com/samsu...-storage-cards

    SD cards only slow down your phone if you put apps on it. I have videos, photos, documents on my sd card on my Note 9, never have any slow downs or lag at all. I get all the read/write tech speak but just from experience it doesn't slow it down, try it for yourself and see.

    The note 9 doesn't have the note 10's ufs 3.0 Wich is 5 times faster than your note 9 both internal and external memory

    If you reformat you'll lose everything on the sd card

    I realize that. Was just thinking because of the faster onboard storage would the format on the SD card be any different on the Note 10+ than the S10 ?

    Now that we have ufs 3.0
    Is using a micro sd going to slow our phones down and deplete our battery, compared to ufs 3.0 by itself ? Ufs 3.0 is 5 times faster in sequential reading and 20 x faster in random reading and it's also 45% more battery efficient
    If I watch a movie from my SD card , is it going to deplete my battery faster than watching it from my ufs 3.0 storage?

    I didn't realize until my second Galaxy S10+ that the reason I was getting crashes and extreme freeze ups while trying to record video was because of my SD card being set as the save location. It was a free 200gb card I got with like the LG V10 years ago..so it's probably not the fastest thing around.. but still once I switched the storage location everything worked great. As far as playing back video though, even with that card I never had any issue with stuttering or unusual battery use.

    That said, I don't plan on using an SD card with my Note 10+ because I have a 256gb OnePlus 7 pro right now and even with a bunch of movies and music playlists downloaded and all my apps (plus a ton I rarely use) I still have about 150gb of storage left.

    I can't wait to get this phone in my hands in a couple of days and run some test on this kind of stuff , specially ufs 3.0 vs SD card speed , there's some YouTubers working on this already, R.i.c.k.y said on his live show today he's working on a video called :
    "why you should never put a micro sd card on your note 10+"
    According to his test the ufs 3.0 storage was 9 times faster than the sd card , video will be out in a couple of days , should be interesting , so far I'm leaning on not putting my 512gb on my new phone , since my storage needs never go beyond 150 gb
    Specially these days with the compression how it is right now
    A movie used to take up 20 gb at 1080p now days most movies take about 1gb at 1080p
    Same goes for books , music, pics , everything takes less space these days

    Use my 256sd card purely for photo backup. That's it.

    They are important to ME, so on phone, sd card and 2 payed cloud back ups.

    Must admit, yet again, google just works across the family for one of these back ups.

    I'm kind of thinking about going this route when I get the phone this week. Logistically, how do you do this?

    Before I go pick up my phone, I'm thinking about just dumping everything from my SD card on my current phone onto my computer, wiping the card, and then using the card as photo backup only. Would then transfer everything from that computer folder to the internal storage of my new phone.

    But I don't know if there's a better way. Kind of want to do a clean install with this phone, not use Smart Switch or anything.

    I use to think I needed a MicroSD card in all my phones. But after having so many fail and how sloooooooow it is to transfer stuff off/on. I just get the biggest storage available. Before phones use to be 16/32GB. But now with 256GB+, I really dont see a need for it.

    I'm on the same boat , usually have a 512 gb SD card in my phones , but after looking at my s10+, ivs only used 150 gb, so no need for the card really, no card for me unless i run out of space
    Wich I don't see happening
    Don't wanna slow my phone down

    Since apparently I'm waiting a week to pick up my phone, I guess I have time to work on this:

    What's the best way to get everything I want from my current SD card into the internal memory of my new phone? I've had the same SD card for a few years, and have only ever used it for my pictures, and maybe stuff like ringtones or music, I think. Pictures are all backed up on Google photos.

    I think I JUST want to transfer pictures over. Maybe some music for offline listening. I want to set up the new phone from scratch, pretty much.

    I already copied my entire SD card onto my computer, but there's like 100 folders and I haven't looked at them yet.

    I thought my Note 8 SD card would not work in Note 10+ without some form of conversion. I was wrong card works fine all photos, music is recognized.
