This may not be as a big of a deal on these phones, but it was enough to convince me. I have 3 64gb SanDisk cards and not of them benchmark the advertised speed.

this is the one I bought from Newegg, it was more expensive but worth it.

I picked up a 64gb Samsung card from Fry's today. They actually had two different card but the package look the same except different sku #. Both class 10 but one was $54 and one was $74. Even the salesman didn't know the different so I got the lower priced one. I did a little googling and maybe the higher prices one is the "extreme" version? One I got work great.

Be careful. You get what you pay for. I've known people to be scammed by counterfeit cars before. Don't be cheap. Buy a quality card, from a reliable company and manufacturer, at a reasonable price. The person I knew with the fake card, every file I copied to it, the md5 checksum failed on it even though it looked like the right file size. You will end up regretting your purchase later on, even when you thought you got the card at a really cheap price. Don't be foolish!

When I first got the S4, my Sandisk 64gb card died after 2 days. Wouldn't even work when put into Windows 7. I tried to reformat it, but the built-in format program under Windows was unable to do it. I can't remember what exactly I used, but it was a free third-party software available on cnet somewhere that allowed me to format it. Never gave me a problem after that. Same card has been working for me for over 3 months now.

Yes. That's the card I have and it's good. I formatted mine fat32 previously and no problems.

Thanks for the heads up. It was $50 at Wal-Mart but I had some money left on a Best Buy gift card and went over there instead and they price matched it. Came away with this baby for $19 out of pocket (after the gift card was used up).

I have purchased "cheap" SD cards in the past for other phones and have regretted it. I went with Best Buy and Sandisk as both seem reputable (even though Best Buy is severely overpriced!)

Any reason you formatted yours using fat32? I just plugged it into my S4 and used the format function on the phone. Is there a difference?

If you're on stock ROM you should have no problems using the 64GB in exFat format. Some peoples that have problems usually running a "custom" ROM or a Non Tmo base kernel causing bootloop. So either format to Fat32 or use a Tmo base kernel. If you have a reason to format in Fat32, keep it exFat
