I really doubt that any microSD card could deliver such great performance in Androbench. And even if there were such microSD available on market, assembling it in mid/low-end device would be impossible because of price.

Here are tests from benchmarks (random write? o . O ): http://www.notebookcheck.com/Test-Mo....106672.0.html
Phone: LG Nexus 5
Kernel: CM stock
ROM: CyanogenMod 11 nightlies (4.4.2)
Mods: optimized dalvik and bionic, OmniROM File Manager
Previous phones: Nokia 6230 -> Sony Ericsson K700i -> Sony Ericsson K800i -> Original iPhone 8GB -> iPhone 3G 16GB -> iPhone 3GS 16GB -> Samsung Galaxy S II (GT-i9100) -> Samsung Galaxy S III (GT-i9300)

Tablet: ASUS Nexus 7 32GB 3G
Kernel: CM stock
ROM: CyanogenMod 11 nightlies (4.4.2)

The rumors of the Moto G having a microSD card come from a German blog that saw a metal cover that was coincidentally the same shape and size as a microSD card and assumed that this meant that a card was hidden underneath. There isn't.

Wouldn't surprise me if all this was a big plan to drive more traffic to ArenaMobile. Clickbaiting basically.

Me and a friend saved some screenshots from a mobile phone with a 32GB SD Card Class 10 and internal memory of Moto G.

Images are attached.
