Nice card, good speed, great price!
October 5, 2019
I made the mistake of buying a micro SD card with too little space for a phone that didn't have much internal memory, and... well, let's just say that before running out and buying a whole new phone, I thought it prudent to buy a larger storage card for it to see how things went with more storage room to go around. And you know, I had concerns about buying an off-brand micro SD card - because I've done it before with regrettable results. But I had to stick to a small budget when I decided to order this, so I didn't have much of a choice.
Price wasn't the bottom line when it came to this purchase. I mean, I ALWAYS comparison shop, so I did do a bit of looking around at other cards at about the same price with Prime delivery. And I had the presence of mind to specifically search for a storage card for an Android device. That definitely narrowed down my search.
My fears were completely dispelled as soon as I rebooted my phone and started using it again. Not only did the card work perfectly fine (the last budget price SD card I bought came right out of the packaging with fatal errors!), but the read/write speed is as expected - which I'm mentioning because other inexpensive cards I've gotten that did happen to work did not necessarily do so at the rate you'd expect from a class 10 micro SD card.
So the long and short of it is that this card works at the advertised speed, and at a totally affordable price. I mean, I was *totally convinced* that my phone just sucked because it was always SO SLOW. But it turns out that the phone actually works pretty great when it's not full to capacity! So I learned a few new things over the last few days:
1) Don't judge a micro SD card by it's cover.
2) Never expect a device with less than 1gb of free space to work as expected.
3) You don't have to spend upwards of $50 to get good device storage. Heck, you don't even have to spend $20!
These are all good things to know about! So if you're like me and you like to download a lot of media to your portable devices, and you don't necessarily have money burning a hole in your pocket to feed your downloading addiction, you can do pretty well for yourself by picking up one of these guys. You won't be sorry!
PS - I would've posted a picture, but the little guy is already installed and I didn't hang onto the package. It's a generic card anyway! It looks just like the picture. 😉
