Save up to 71% by purchasing these microSD cards from Amazon

Save up to 71% by purchasing these microSD cards from Amazon
Depending on whether your phone has expandable memory, you might be interested in a sale being run by Amazon. With the capacity of microSD slots running as high as 2TB these days (that's 2000GB), you can imagine how pricey some microSD cards might be. If you have a need for a 128GB or 64GB card, or know someone that does (hint: microSD cards could make a great holiday gift for the techie on your list), check out these two deals from Amazon.

Let's start with the 128GB card from SanDisk. The microSDXC card is normally $149.99, but you can pick it up for $59.99 which includes free shipping. That works out to a 60% savings, meaning that you can buy two for less than it cost to buy one at the pre-sale price. The card is waterproof, temperature proof, shock proof, X-ray proof and magnet proof. It transfers content as fast as 80MB per second, and has a limited ten-year warranty.

If you don't need a 128GB card, you can pick up a 64GB microSD card from Kingston for just $18.99. At that price, you are saving a whopping 71% from the usual price of $65.50. It is compatible with SDXC slots, and transfers content at 30MB per second. Kingston provides a lifetime warranty and technical support.

If you have a microSD slot on your phone, and you're worried about bumping up against the native storage capacity of your handset, why not take advantage of these two deals? Better not delay, though. Both cards are on sale for a limited time only.

I'll be waiting for my 200GB SD card and extra battery to get to me from LG for use in my V10. I'll be putting the 128GB card I already have in my Tab S 8.4 from now on.

What can one possibly do with 200GB worth of space...? My 64GB 6SP still has 25GB left after all my songs, pictures, apps, videos and tens of thousands of text messages.

That's an interesting question, Smurf. I'm actually not sure myself, but I already have some ideas. I can download whole movies, seasons and seasons of tv shows, all the music I could want or need, plus photos and 4K video without having to move anything somewhere else for space. Either way, having more than triple the amount of space your 6SP will ever be able to have at any given time is pretty nice to just have, too. Just the fact that I have that option and possibility is nice. I was always having to trade off memory on my iPhone 4, having to go through iTunes every time. I really don't want to go back to 2012 with not having enough non-expandable memory.

lol, I posted this same card for the same price back on October 12th, post number 4. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Deal-Snag-a-high-performance-128-GB-microSD-card-for-70-on-Amazon_id74647 lol, $59.99 is the standard price for this model on Amazon. Still a good deal if you ask me.

Google and Samsung spearheading the ''NO SD cards on flagships'' policy.... But others refuse to follow LOL Looks like SD cards are here to stay forever

I'd say that Apple has always been the one spearheading that policy with their iPhones, Google and Samsung are relatively new to it in comparison.

Apple is understandably greedy, so it's a given at that

Understandably, but inexcusably greedy.

I'll stick to my 64GB U3 card so that I can record in 4K

11. Scott93274

is 80 MB/s too slow for 4K recording?

12. mixedfish

Posts: 1542; Member since: Nov 17, 2013

Doubt it, 4K recording is anywhere between 20-50MB/s

18. UglyFrank

Those are read speeds, not write speeds. The write speed on these cards won't come anywhere near to the stated 80/30MB/s

19. Scott93274

Posts: 6025; Member since: Aug 06, 2013

And what makes you say that? The Amazon page says it has, and I quote "Up to 80 MB/s transfer speed" Transfer means write, not read.

Since you are such a genius, I figured you would scroll down the Amazon page and see this in the legal disclaimers section. "(3) Up to 80MB/s read speed; write speed lower. Based on internal testing; performance may be lower depending on host device, interface, usage conditions, and other factors. 1 MB=1,000,000 bytes." I rest my case.

Sh*t! what the crap, why can't these online outlets be freaking honest with their description. UglyFrank, I will now back down a humbled man.

That is respectable.

Apparently it has up to 48MB/s write speed... I bought 2 of those and will receive it soon... hopefully I can use it for recording 4K without problems...
