    For a Samsung device, I would recommend the Samsung SD cards- I use the EVO+ -some of the other brand cards tend to not work well with the Galaxy phones.

    UHS II cards may be overkill - it doesn't appear that the phone supports UHS II speeds, though the cards are compatible:

    I concur on Samsung cards. Over the years I have had two SanDisk cards fail but never a Samsung. And there is anecdotal evidence regarding Samsung cards working "better" in Samsung phones but I'm not sure that it's really true unless you're using low quality cards.

    +2 on the Samsung cards. I also read that the S7 Edge doesn't support anything faster then UHS 1 so it would be a waste of money using one in it.

    I have the 128gb Evo+ and it works great and is much faster then my old Lexar card.

    They are both good, you'd probably see similar performance between the two because both are very fast and other issues will limit the real-world speed you experience. As to "better", there is *anecdotal* evidence that Samsung cards play better in Samsung phones.

    Here's an anecdote: I've killed three SanDisk cards in Samsung Galaxy devices. I have not had a single Samsung card go bad. I own ten Samsung phones and tablets, each has a Samsung uSD card in it now and the oldest has been working for something like six years.

    We have 4 Samsung phones and 1 Samsung tablet with a mix of SanDisk and Samsung cards in them, plus a number of cameras (compacts, DSLRs, GoPro) all with a whole lot of only SanDisk SD and CF cards. Over the years, the only card failures I've had were 2 SanDisk uSD cars. Having said all that, I intend to stick with Samsung cards in my S7E. The latest small USB 3.0 USB drive I bought was also a Samsung because the original, similar SanDisk drive I had gets so hot during use that it literally burns your hand when removed. So yeah, I also have anecdotal evidence for SanDisk issues and will go with Samsung when I buy new storage.

    If you're talking about the S7 Edge, it only has a UHS-I interface. UHS-II cards need devices that have the UHS-II interface or else it will just use the UHS-I interface. Go to What's the Difference Between SD and UHS-II Memory Cards? | Memory content from Electronic Design to see the difference between UHS-I and UHS-II interfaces.

    Also, what you're REALLY looking for is U3 speed, not UHS-II interface. Most cards are U1 read/write speed. Only the more expensive cards are U3 (the sandisk extreme pro 64gb is U3). The EVO+ cards are U1, the EVO PRO cards are U3. On the card itself, look for a little 1 or 3 inside the letter U. Just google "u3 sd card" to see what I'm talking about. That being said though, I think all UHS-II cards out there are U3. So if you want to future proof, you can get UHS-II, but you're paying extra for something that you might not take full advantage of for a while, and when you can use it, the price on UHS-II cards will probably have dropped quite a bit.

    So to sum it up. UHS-I vs USH-II is just an interface. It does NOT tell you how fast the actual card reads/writes. U1 or U3 is the actual read/write speed of the card.

    It's like UHS interfaces are the max speed limit on a highway, but U1 and U3 are the actual cars that drive on the highway. The cars can go any speed they want up to the speed limit.

    Samsung is better all round, the read/write speeds are like 90mb/sec+. I went for the Sandisk Extreme PLUS which hasn't let me down once.

    Are you all buying/using cheaper or older Sandisk cards? I've never had any go bad on me. Plus they're generally lower-priced per GB than Samsung cards.

    In my case, no. While I don't buy the top end - e.g., Extreme Pro - I stick to higher-end cards. Nor were they old. In both cases where I had a uSD failure, when I removed the card from the device it was blazing hot, as if it had shorted.

    I only used new class 10 SanDisk cards, not cheap, but not the most expensive ones either. The device would work for a while, but then files and directories would get corrupted and things would deteriorate quickly after that.
