Default Dont be fooled by extreme plus micro sd's

I was browsing online today and I looked up my 64gb extreme sandisk microsd. While looking I noticed a new extreme plus version for 20 bucks less. I quickly thought extreme plus has to be better than extreme (see my logic there). Well it turns out that it is actually slower. The extreme plus has a 45mb/s read and write but the extreme has a 50mb/s write and an 80 mb/s read. Well worth the extra 20 bucks if you are dropping a hundred anyway. It is way faster than the ultra that I had. Just sayin'.

Most people wont notice the difference in read/write speeds unless they are constantly transferring movies/music to their device. Its a marketing thing. Sure they may be faster but you won't notice it when you open up your photos

I was agreeing with you (partially)! Im saying that the 20 dollar price drop isn't worth it!

I stay away from those SanDisk 64GB cards. Had two. Both died within months of owning them. Phone stopped reading em all together. Wasn't even moving files a lot or anything. Google it. Lots of people had this problem. Crappy cards.

Get a legit Samsung one. Never had an issue.

I could say the same about Samsung cards. Never ever had a problem with sandisk, but I got my first Samsung microsd and it wasn't helping when I had to factory reset my phone a few times last week. Took card out phone stopped bootlooping. Going back to sandisk next time. They are reliable and have highest compatibility with electronics.

I recently bought a sandisk extreme 64gb(red/tan colored) and the transfer speeds are insane..it was about 120$ but we'll worth it..I would recommend it to anyone who knows the difference in transfer rates and hates lag
