Storage [Q] Good SD card for S3

Hi,
Could you recommend me a good SD card for Samsung Galaxy S3 with high speed and low to average price. Preferable capacity is 16 to 32GB.
Also I want to see your opinion on these 3 brands; SanDisk, Samsung and Kingston

Thanks!

I can report the same. I've got a 16GB SanDisk Ultra microSD for about 1 and a half years.

If you buy SDs, look for those Class 10 ones. Those are the fast ones. Don't use SDs below Class 6, as they reduce the whole performance of your phone.

Thank you arj8 and Leevee33.

I would like to see some posts about the other brands, because Sandisk is a little bit expensive. I am thinking on buying this one; MicroSDHC 16GB EVO Memory Card (Sorry I am a new user, so I cannot post any links)

Thanks!

I use a SanDisk ultra. So far I'm pleased with it even though I broke it once but I think that was due to the fact that I rooted the tablet and switched the external memory with the sd card.

Thank you guys.
I will probably buy the Samsung brand. They have such a nice performance and actually they are not very expensive.

Feel free to leave some other opinions and who knows, you could change my mind.

I have a class 4 Kingmax 32GB and I noticed that the transfer speeds are ~10 Mb/s which I feel are rather slow. Can you guys share what size and brand you are using and an average transfer speed?

Yeah, it is way too slow. Class 4 SD crads are too slow for phones (for example; S3). You should look for higher class, like class 10. I am thinking of buying this card; http://www.samsung.com/us/photograph...s/MB-MP16DA/AM which has up to 48mb/s read/write. Moreover, Samsung cards are very cheap in my country.
However, I heard bad things about this brand, so I suggest you buy Sandisk Ultra. Sandisk is something like the Iphone of the SD cards. They have really good performance, but the price is without any comment.
