Not the best read/write speeds, but this 200GB microSD card is pretty awesome and it's only $79. I ordered one yesterday: Amazon.com: SanDisk Ultra 200GB Micro SD (SDSDQUAN-200G-G4A): Computers & Accessories

Re: Best Micro SD card for SAMSUNG GALAXY S7/ S7 EDGE

I'm wondering if this snazzy UHS-II thing will work with the S7 to its fully rated speeds or whether the phone can only take advantage of UHS-I cards;

Lexar Professional 64 GB Class 10 High Performance Micro SDHC UHS-II Memory Card with Card Reader https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00U0XG...ag=hawk-future-21&ascsubtag=UUacUvbUpU5028814

I don't believe it will take advantage of the faster UHS-II architecture as no sources I have found say the S7 has this capability. This card you referenced will still work, though, at the UHS-I U3 speed ratings (minimum of 30MB/sec write).

Does that 200 gb record 4k?

It will be able to keep up with 4K video recording, as all cards with a Class 10 rating will (minimum of 10MB/sec write).

If you want cost for performance the samsung pro 64gb you can't go wrong with it. If you don't care for price and want slightly faster speed you can get the samsung pro +. The fastest card is the sandisk extreme pro however i have heard that samsung has issues while using sandisk cards on several forums and I don't want to risk it.

The one linked below is the one I purchased, and I know the reviews say that they received a fake on, but Amazon sells this card directly, I called them and the rep assured me their Samsung IT department has checked their stock for fakes since the incident and followed up with this email.

Hello Jason,

The Samsung EVO+ is also a really good bang for the buck with great speeds and not at U3 prices.
