Hey andreas [emoji3]
I've myself been using the SanDisk ultra one for over a year now. Fact is its write speeds seem to have decreased a lil from the initial days still id vouch for it as it gives satisfactory performance.

Firstly, you need to know how much space do you want. If you want something over 32 GB, you're going to use MicroSDXC, wich goes up to 2 TB (128 GB is the maximum you'll find, currently). SDXC needs to be reformated to FAT32 to be supported by smartphones. You may find something about it doing a quick research on Google.

On what comes to manufacturer, this article ( is a good guide, even it's a quite 'old' (1 year) for technology standards. It basically states, after doing some tests, that Sandisk has the best quality, Samsung takes the mid-end front and some good Class 4 even outperforms some low quality Class 10. You may look upon these tests and decide on what one will fullfill your needs.

For me, a Samsung 32 GB UHS-1 would be fine. It's very fast (UHS-1 is faster than Class 10) and made by a good manufacturer. It may not be a Sandisk, but isn't so far from, anyway. Plus, we're talking about smartphone storage, which usually won't require anything so high end, like professional photographers usually do.
