[Q] MicroSD card speed limitation in Galaxy Note 2
I have just bought a SanDisk Ultra microSDHC 32GB UHS-1, but I noticed the transfer speed seems to be rather slow. So installed the SD Card Tester tool and run a test. On average, the writing speed is about 8 MB/s and reading speed is about 11.5 MB/s this is no where near the 30 MB/s speed mentioned for a UHS-1 card.
I also have a 2 GB microSD card of unknown brand (made in China) that I got for free when I bought my Blackberry Gemini. Surprisingly the test result is slightly better, writing speed is 9.97 MB/s and reading speed 12.21 MB/s.
I bought the SanDisk microSD card at a major computer store, so I believe the card is genuine.
My question is, is there any speed limitation on Galaxy Note 2 hardware for reading/writing to a microSD card to an extent that buying a class 10 or UHS-1 card is pretty much useless?
