1> Precisely, some phones are like Apple Computers, in regards to being somewhat sensitive to memory chips. Fifteen years of Apple laptops have taught me that they work best with Samsung memory. We have well over twenty Android users at work, most with either SGS 3, SGS 4, or Note 2 models. The favorite card is Samsung.
