Deal: You can buy a 200GB microSD card from SanDisk for just $64
One of the best and most sought-after features on smartphones and tablets is expandable storage. Sure, thinner and lighter devices with premium builds are fantastic, but at the end of the day, being able to pop in a microSD card to double, triple, or quadruple your available storage is insanely useful. microSD cards usually aren't the most expensive purchases, but as you start looking at models with larger storage capacities, prices can rise quite quickly. 

Amazon is currently running a deal on a SanDisk Ultra microSD card with a whopping 200GB of storage, and today you can purchase it for just $64. Being able to score 200GB for just a little more than $60 is an insane deal, and although Amazon might have been selling this same card for $49 during their massive Cyber Week sale, this is still a great price to pay if you happened to miss out on that past deal.

If you want to save a little cash, you can get the 128GB model for $39.99, but jumping up all the way to 256GB will cost you $199.99. The 200GB model is probably your best bet with this current sale, but with no word from Amazon as to how long the sale will last or how much is currently in stock, your best bet is to probably get your purchases in sooner rather than later.

Great for general storage but I wouldn't recommend it for adaptive storage because of its slower speed. I got a 128gb sandisk extreme plus for 50 which is amazing. Rated for 95 read and write instead of the 10ish you get on this.

So you use adaptive storage on your phone? How do you like it?

Sorry if my above question sounds phrased weird, but I'm asking because I've been thinking about using adaptive storage on my phone but I can't find any good microSD cards to buy.

Get a microSD with U3 rating which allow for 4K video recording. Otherwise be prepared for a bit of lag and wait.

It is not worth it in my opinion. I used it once on a sony Z3 compact which is my work phone. Then I was using double tap to wake and sony does not have the condition that the phone should not wake up in the pocket. My device administrator also has some rules that if wrong PIN is entered a number of times (not sure how many times) the phone should reset. So the phone woke up a couple of times in my pocket and random numbers were entered as PIN so the phone reset. Since the SD card memory was seen by android as internal storage, everything was wiped. Apart from that, I do not see the benefit when one has enough internal storage to install applications. All media and big downloads should go to the external storage IMO.

Don't buy it if you have an highend phone that records 4k movies. The card is to slow for that! For Full HD its fine.
