    Post Does anyone know yet if the SD slot on this will have UHS 2 or 3 speeds?

    U3 does *not* mean it can "only" do 30mb/s, U3 says it must always do at least 30mb/s under all conditions and any situation in which it fails to provide that performance means the card is defective. Both U3 and V30 speeds are minimum guaranteed speeds. The fact that they list it as "up to"...

    I got a notice recently about some important software update as well. It looked like the notice you'd get if there was a system update, but it turned out to be from the "Galaxy Apps" app rather than from the OS. Several of the Samsung apps and services needed updating. Try checking the...

    I guess I wasn't clear about that as I have several problems that are probably related, but behave a little differently. BT dropping - can usually turn it back on, but sometimes it refuses. Usually don't need to reboot to fix this. Wifi dropping - often have trouble turning it back on and...

    I just started having this problem in the past month. All at once I've been getting BT sometimes turning off, mobile networks failing to reconnect after I visit a no/low signal area (such as after a plane trip when the phone was in airplane mode). I've also seen wifi mode fight my attempts to...

    Just a quick note from the OP that I'm not actively monitoring this thread any more so it may take a few weeks (months?) for new benchmarks posted at this point to appear in the list in the OP and in the charts. Many of us chose a card from among the many worthwhile cards listed already and are...

    Is that the UHS-1 Class 10 card? Do you have a model number or a pointer to the same card on Amazon or the SanDisk web site? The reason I ask is that they have a couple of different cards with the same name, but different speed ratings and colors so I want to represent the data accurately in...

    I say pretty much the same thing in the first paragraph of the first post. The 4K video rates on these phones don't seem to be high enough to warrant the typical speed requirements.

    It seems to have roughly the same (poor) performance as the SanDisk 200gb Ultras. The sad thing is that it claims to be U3, but doesn't seem to exceed 30MB/s (sequential) in the tests you posted which means it is not meeting the minimum speed guaranteed by the speed class symbol written on the...

    How much lower? All cards have lower capacity than what is shown on the label due to creative marketing. A "64GB" card will tend to have around 60gb of storage when viewed in a computer or phone. A 128gb card might have only 120gb. This is usually due to measuring the card with powers of 10...

    The Sandisk Extreme Pro and Samsung Pro+ are both competitive with this if you can find a better price. The only difference is that the 1800x will be much faster on reading when attached to a PC with a proper UHS-II reader. It will likely be faster at writing on a PC as well, but the...

    Is the "Android" there part of its official model name? There is a SanDisk Ultra line, but I can't find any references to a SanDisk card with Android in its name. I'll record the results as a SanDisk Ultra for now.

    Well the Extreme Pro uses a UHS-II bus and has better flash in it. The Extreme Plus uses the same UHS-I bus, and also has faster flash in it. They're all rated U3 because that is the highest speed class you can claim and it only promises a minimum write speed of 30MB/s which is needed for all...

    Thanks for trying to format the results, but on my browser it came out as a random jumble of underscores unfortunately. One question - how did you get what looks to be random read/write results from A1 SD? Is that a setting I've missed?

    He was benchmarking the 128gb Lexar 1800x card and actually those results are pretty disappointing. The 73 read speed is one of the lowest in the Androbench results, but at least it is right there in the ballpark. The 19 write speed, however, is one of the lowest we've seen other than the Class...

    Those look like the right tests this time. Thank you! This is the first result we've seen on the Lexar 1800x cards and unfortunately it turned in the lowest random write speed by a large margin. Is that result reproducible? I'd love to see others provide some results on these Lexar cards as...

    Nor as fast as the Samsung Pro+ cards in the Androbench results. It still has one of the fastest read results on either benchmark, but the write speed is much lower. It's unfortunate because this card was easily beating the Samsungs in the A1 results. Did you rerun the A1 benchmark at the same...

    Benchmark results for the Plus and the Pro are listed in the original post in this thread which also links to a spreadsheet with graphs of their performance. All are UHS-I cards with a U3 speed rating, but the quality of the flash memory is different. The regular is rated 90/40 (sequential...

    The results you show for the A1 benchmarks are a lot lower than the results others have posted for the same card, though one other person also posted low numbers in a later post taken in a regular S7 phone, so we have 2 people with much faster seq r/w and 2 (one on S7, one on S7 Edge) who have...

    Those results are a lot lower than a previous report on this thread. Has the card been in use for a while? Did you re-run the benchmarks after letting it sit in the phone for a couple of days (to make sure any media indexing or other operations had time to complete)?

    One other responder got similar low write results for the 128gb Samsung Pro+.

    UHS-II cards are backwards compatible with UHS-I slots, so yes, this device supports UHS-II cards just fine. But they are run at UHS-I speeds.

    You might want to revise the Lexar 1000x numbers, the post following yours identifies that the speeds were being measured on the wrong partition. (And at some point I should probably start collecting benchmark result links in the OP. I'll work on that soon...)

    First you need to go to the settings tab and choose the partition for the SD card - on mine it's something with 0000-0000 in the name.
