    Does the S7 even support the standard for the cards in the "best" list?

    What's the minimum read/write speeds I should be looking at getting if I want it to handle 4K?

    I went with the SanDisk Extreme Plus - 95 read, 90 write. Best performance for pricepoint IMO - got a 64gb for $50, and then used the Samsung Pay $30 giftcard at BestBuy to make it $20.

    When you want to Transfer from the card to laptop you will need the Speed
    & I always like the get the Best there is

    I have the Patriot 256GB Supersonic Rage 2
    So you can Imagine how fast it will be to transfer from SD to my Flash Drive with OTG

    Sandisk was not available so i Ordered the Lexar® Professional 1800x

    But do we know how fast the card reader is in the phone. That was a issue with the Note3 in that the card reader in the phone limited access speed to the micro SD card when it was in the phone. I ran a benchmark on my 128GB card last night and only got about half it's rated speed for reads and writes.

    Just picked up the Samsung EVO 32GB microSD Class 10 at BestBuy for $12 to put in my S7e. Plenty of extra space for me.

    Thanks Vader, however in your test the speed is limited by the microUSB 2.0 interface on the S7 to 42 MB/s.
    Could you please test the Lexar 1800x microSD card in the S7 with the apps "A1 SD" and/or "Androbench" (for latter don't forget to select the correct test target, first) and report the numbers you'll get, here?

    So anyone having issues finding the "SanDisk Extreme PRO microSDXC UHS-II Card 128gb
    Read Speed: up to 275MB/s
    Write Speed: up to 100MB/s"

    Directly on Amazon? When I search by the serial number product code provided by SanDisk it seems to just be an older model of the same card with same name? Model for 64 claims to be "SDSQXPJ-064G-ANCM3" comes up with "Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB Class 10 UHS-I 95 MBps Read 90 MBps Write microSDXC" that is not the same thing that SanDisks website claims for this card? Any help would be great!

    I purchased the SanDisk 64GB Extreme PRO microSD - Fastest available SanDisk (trusted brand) at a sweet-point for price (£35). The 128GB was too expensive and I'm sure 64GB will suffice.

    i read the same. That a standard old UHS/U1 card is enough, that S7/S7edge isn't going to take advantage of higher max speeds...
    What about know?

    5 cent. anyone?

    My understanding is that UHS-II is a different physical port and requires more pin connections than what is in the S7/S7e.

    I'm actually not sure if any device supports the UHS-II standard (would need to do more research).

    im talking about UHS Speed Class 3 (U3) vs UHS Speed Class 1 (U1). Both in UHS-I and if we really can take advantage of the Class 3 (U3) speed on the S7.

    Statement on the S7 sub-forum:

    For those that missed it, there's a related "news" article on the AC homepage.

    My problem with all this discussion is that people aren't actually sticking the cards into the target phone and testing them before recommending them. Paying a premium for a better product is understandable, but "better" is very subjective. If the Galaxy S7 isn't going to take advantage of higher max speeds, why pay for them?

    I have a Samsung 128 GB "Pro+" UHS/U3 card which should be among the fastest available (95MB/sec read, 90MB/sec write), but in the Galaxy S7, it benchmarks no faster than an old UHS/U1 card. On that basis, I'd suggest people save their money and buy a much less expensive UHS/U1 card of the same size.

    The really Bad Thing here (in my opinion) is the AC article that actually suggests some of these microSD cards for use in the S7 without actually testing them. They even go so far as to list "transfer speeds" on some of the cards, which leads a reader to (wrongly) believe that the cards might see anything near such speeds in the S7. That's VERY misleading on the part of AC.

    AC: Why not actually TEST these microSD cards before recommending them? It really wouldn't take long, and the testing data would make your article much more informative and useful to your readers.

    Ahh I understand now. I don't have a U3 card so unfortunately I can't test them.
