    I was at the Samsung kiosk today at BB getting a Zagg HD screen protector installed. They had a couple Samsung 32GB EVO (don't know aht that stands for) SDHC Class 10 cards on the desk so I bought one. Think it was $25.

    Sandisk Ultra 64 gig version here .
    Ditto. Class 10 UHS-1. Has worked flawlessly so far. 4K video and everything else (not much video tested yet). Moved practically everything that will move over to it and no glitches at all so far.

    I have questions about the Samsung EVO line as well. Would this one work?

    I am probably going to get a 64GB disk for pictures and music (I don't anticipate much videos). Is there any real reason to get the fastest downloads (80MB/s) over the middle range of 45MB/s or even the low range of 30MB/s? Also, how is the extra memory treated by the phone - meaning do you have to specifically designate what is written to the microSD or does the phone decide what goes where? Thanks in advance.

    These are peak download speeds... Write speeds can and probably is lower. Depends on what you are using it for though, if just to store media, it doesn't really matter except it might take a little longer copy

    Picked up a SanDisk 32gb C10 on Amazon for $20.00. I was bummed to find out Kitkat will not let you download pics, movies, etc. Right to SD card. Wtf. That's why I got the SD card. Hope this changes.

    SAMSUNG 64GB MicroSDXC Flash Card With Adapter Model MB-MP64DA/AM
    Ordered on NewEgg
    Put in phone when i got phone, and it formatted card and have been good since.
    I am required to encrypt data on phone because it's a work device and haven't had any issues
    I'm not using it much either will copy pictures and music to directly to phone and that's about it, but it's a great reliable card.
    64 gigs for 40 shipped is pretty decent.
    I've heard a lot of issues with off brand cards and would rather just pay a little more for something reliable.
    I was going to order san disk, but the ultra cards were getting horrible reviews with Samsung devices, the extreme cards seemed to be fine, but were 60 vs 40 for cost.

    Yes, any brand Micro SD card will fit in any device that uses a Micro SD card if that's what you're asking. The cards are all made to the same standard irrespective of manufacturer.

    You're welcome. Just stay with the leading name brands and pay attention to the Class of the card. The higher the Class the faster the read / write speed of the card. For example, a Class 10 is faster than a Class 6. This is important when using in a device that takes HD video and images in higher resolutions.

    I read something like this last night. I thought it had to do with applications. Alot of people writing comments seemed extremely turned off by this and restricted. Didn't quite understand all their tech talk.

    But you really can't write music and other media on cards from your androids with new kitkat anymore?
    I'm assuming a little flash drive would be same thing?

    If not we still have Dropbox and cloud storage which is kind of cool.

    Has anyone seen information regarding the phone's ability to make full use of the USB3 transfer speed?

    I mean, can the phone max out a 45MB/s card, let alone one of those 70MB/s cards?

    When I travel, I often load up the SD card with a lot of shows, so it isn't unusual for me to want to transfer 15 to 20 GB of video onto the card. With my GS3 I always had to peel the back off and pop the mSD card out to put it into a faster card reader, but if the phone can transfer at fast speeds, that would be great.

    If the phone could actually saturate the 30MB/s read speed of the ultra cards, I'd consider getting one of the faster cards.

    This is on my Sandisk 128gb microSDXC card which is rated for 30MB/s.

    Was that on your Note 3 or on the GS5? Also, were you in the dedicated "USB3 mode"?

    PS - Folder Orginizer ftw. I thought I was the only one still installing that on every new device I get.

    This was on my note 3. This was just a sd card test, not connected to the pc.

    I liked folder organizer but decided to just use the backup function in Nova, got tired of reinstalling it.

    Hi! I'm buying the galaxy s5 tomorrow and unsure which card to buy. Do I need to buy the higher transfer rate cards for the S5?
    It depens on what you need.Personally speaking,64GB is quite enough.

    I picked up a couple of Samsung 64G B EVO micro SDXC cards (class 10) with adapter from Amazon.com on Black Friday for around $25 bucks each - I've had good luck with Samsung cards in the past in my Dell Venue 8 Android tablet and would think they'd be an excellent choice with a Samsung tablet.

    I opted for the Samsung Pro Class 10 UHS-1 Grade 1 16gb
    Up to 90MB/s Read (UHS-I Interface)
    Up to 80MB/s Write (UHS-I Interface)

    Bit overkill I know but it's always nice to have fast cards.
