I just got my S3 (United States) and and tried 3 (YES 3) Lexar 32 GB Class 10 cards and every one of them have failed. I called Lexar, they say to have my firmware upgraded. Went to Sprint and verified everything is fine with the phone. The cards won't work in other phones at Sprint Either. Before buying another card I'd like to know from you guys which one out there will work with no problems, speed, and size is important for me. I know I'll be using more memory than the 32gb in the future. I called Sandisk and they recommended their SDSDQUA-032G Ultra 32 Class 10 and said it would work. Sprint says they know the Class 6 works in the S3.

I'd like more than 32gb. and fast write & Read speeds.

Can I get some great recommendations from you before I buy another piece of crap. Two weeks now and I still don't have a working card. Lucky I have Amazon prime membership.

I use a 32gb Sandisk Class 10 SDHC Card, this thing works. Problem with anything bigger then 32gb is that you have to use sdxc and this is only really compatible in fat32 or exfat, for both you have to format the card before inserting into the phone.

Try the SanDisk 32gb Mobile Ultra UHS-1 because it's cheaper than normal class 10 Mobile Ultra and just as fast, and I've been using it a while with no problems.

I would like the larger size. What would I need to format the bigger size. I wouldn't have a problem with that if I had some detailed instructions.

Thanks.

Hello,

I'd recommend the Toshiba Exceria memory card, either with 16, 32 or 64GB. This card is a class 10 card with UHS 3. Although the S3 can't use the full speed of the micro SD, this is a well working combination.

I have the SanDisk 64GB ultra sdxc or whatever it's called. It works very well with no issues and I have 1,000+ pictures stored on it with about 30 videos.
