90mb/s reading speed. Your card probably has just half of it.

$60 is expensive? Currently, 128gb sandisk is around $77 in our country. Have you seen the price difference between iphone 6/samsung s6 64 and 128gb? At least with micro sd you can expect them to lower their price in a few months. Sandisk already explained the 200gb capacity, just google it.

if there is already a card with 512gb the limit is higher than 200... on my card write speed is 20 MB/s and I got my sandisk 128gb for 60$,thats why I think the "200gb" is too expensive.

This is why the Note 5 better have a Micro SD Card.

They will not remove micro sd in Note 5. It's a suicide move for the note if sammy keeps listening to their apple-thinking marketing people.

I hope not. And even if it doesn't I'll just get a Meenova SD card reader & go that route.

it costs almost mainstream one smartphone, gotta wait a bit longer till the price cuts half~~and 90MB/s isn't too impressive while it has 200 GB . But it is nice to see such a thing comes to life
