Excellent memory card reader
on April 2, 2017
Excellent memory card reader. Has everything you need (minus the memory card), to add more storage space. In my case, to my 32GB Samsung Galaxy S6 phone, which lacks an external microSD memory card slot.
**NOTE** Your phone must be OTG (On The Go) capable. If you don't know what that means, just Google it. Or, search for "OTG" in the Google Play Store, and download an OTG checker App. It will tell you if your phone is OTG ready.
This memory card reader has a microSD slot, a Standard SD slot, a microSD connector, a Standard USB connector, and the new USB TYPE-C connector. Everything you need to store and transfer data to and from your phone and other devices.
**NOTE** The Vanja Memory card Reader will say (in it's description box), that it only supports up to 64GB sdcards. That's a misprint. My 128GB microSDXC card works fine with it, without any issues.
Samsung did a really dumb thing and didn't include a memory card slot on the Galaxy S6. You could only have a 32GB or 64GB S6 phone, which was dumb-butt stupid. 32GB was depleted quickly, and the 64GB phone was way overpriced. Sounds like something dumb the minions at Apple would do, "where compliance is mandatory." :)
Today is 02APR2017, and a few days ago, they announced the upcoming 20APR2017 release of the Galaxy S8. It's supposed to be extremely expensive, but worth it. I was very close to planning on upgrading my S6 to S8, for the specific purpose of having a good phone with an external memory card slot.
Thank God I didn't. That would have been another $900+ phone, and another 2yr commitment. My S6 is still a very good phone, minus the missing microSD card slot. More importantly, I only owe $80 more until it's paid off. They can keep that overpriced S8, and I'll keep my $900.
I found a much better, and more affordable solution, by combining the two items (128GB microSDxc card, and Vanja SD card reader) listed below.
Just slide the memory card into the reader, then plug the mini reader (smaller than a USB stick/thumb drive) into your phone (via the microSD slot, or the new USB Type-C slot). Voila, 128GB (119GB available) of much needed additional storage space "on the cheap." The phone recognizes it immediately. Or plug the Standard USB connector into a laptop or other device. Bam, instant storage.
IT'S SIMPLE... just combine the two items below and you're set, for a total cost of $54.95. It's so nice to be able to store and watch movies and videos again. With ease, mind you. :)
