Default Is this the right SD card to order?

I recently bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 and plan to upgrade to 64 gig.

Is this the right card to buy? If not, what should I look for?

SanDisk Ultra 64 GB microSDXC Class 10 UHS-1 Memory Card 30MB/s with Adapter SDSDQUA-064G-U46A


Thank you in advance.
-Steve

I found the answer in a text that says:

"SDXC is an evolution of the SD / SDHC memory card standard. Whereas SDHC cards have a maximum storage capacity of 32 GB, the SDXC standard supports cards up to 2 TB (2048 GB).

Just as with previous versions of the standard, there is a smaller "micro" version designed for small devices such as cell phones. microSDXC cards have all of the same features of full-size SDXC cards; they are just smaller.

Any SD or microSD card larger than 32 GB is actually an SDXC or microSDXC card.

microSDXC cards are the same size and shape as microSD and microSDHC cards, and the standards are designed to be backward-compatible. In other words, a phone with a microSDXC slot will also accept microSD and microSDHC cards. But a microSDXC card will only work in a phone that specifically supports microSDXC."

Hey Steve I've heard RUMORS that these cards will work but don't hold me to it as I've never tested nor do I own an S3

Theory can use this card, but the best way is to test it first, sometimes there will be compatibility problem.

I've heard of people using some phones that were even 2 years old that successfully worked with an 64GB SDXC card, however they said you have to re-format the card once it is in the phone since SDXC uses I think exFAT as the default filesystem and the phone needs it to be FAT32.

Your computer won't care because it is FAT32, but Windows will not let you format a drive beyond 32GB unless it is NTFS (which will not work with the phone) or exFAT.

This is strictly a microsoft designed limitation and does not apply to Apple or Linux.

Windows is perfectly happy with even a 500GB fat32 drive, it just won't let you make one.
