Default 64Gb

Hi,

Thanks for all the great info on the microSD cards.
I have been doing a brief search on microSD's for my galaxy S2. I always assumed that the maximum microSD that worked with the GS2 was the 32Gb.

Could someone explain this to me then?
[Q] micro sdxc 64gb Card to SGS2? - Page 6 - xda-developers

I pulled the site from wikipedia of all places, which claimed that GS2 could go up to 64Gb.

Thanks in advance

64GB SDXC cards work fine.

awesome.
As far as I'm aware, since sdxc are backwards compatible, this theoretically allows the galaxy S2 to use one anywhere from the 64GB up to the highest capacity of 2TB?
Not saying that there is any need for having anywhere near this amount of space, but would having a larger microSD in anyway affect the overall performance/speed of the phone?

Bump.

I'm interested in hearing the answer to that question as well

Also, has anyone tested an SDXC card, (64gb or up) on the gs2?

If you can find and ship me a microSD card larger than 64GB I'll be happy to test it for you.

Yup, there's a thread in this forum with a review.

Default Cannot insert my Sandisk 32Gb microSDHC card into samsung GS2

Hi there,

Perhaps one of you has had the same experience and found a solution? I am afraid my new Samsung GS2 has a dodgy microSDcard slot. I managed to insert a 8Gb microSDHC card previously, but gave the card to my girlfriend. Bought myself a 32Gb Sandisk microSDHC card, but I am not able to insert it into the slot. Instead of hearing the 'click' sound, it jams after being inserted for 95%. I could insert the card itself into its adapter and read/write on it using my laptop, so the card seems ok? Any tips or do I have to go back to my phone supplier? =(

Any help appreciated.

Kind regards,

Shun

I didn't check, but do they offer international shipping? For the price, it may be worth it for you.

Unfortunately the cheapest international delivery is $43 which brings the items price to a grand total of 77.

8 more than i can get it nationally, a shame really but good to see other people getting amazing deals

Default Class 4 vs Class 10

All the ads for Micro 32GB SD cards fall either in the Class 4 or Class 10 category. What's the difference and is it worth it to pay more for the Class 10 card? I am preparing to buy an 1pad clone tablet, which is very cheap, but needs a huge memory upgrade...

I guess check out Kingston or Crucial as well as Sandisk, maybe samsung.

The Class determines read/write speeds. Some say Class 10 is worth it, others say it's not. I noticed a difference, but I wouldn't say I noticed a "significant" difference. I've had Class 2, 4, 10 and currently 6 (since 64gb microsd is Class 6). I notice very little difference (if any) with my class 6 vs. class 10. I noticed a little more difference between class 4 and class 10. The biggest difference was noticed between class 2 and class 4. Not sure that'll help you, but wanted to give you at least my experience between the different classes.

That helps alot, thanks.
This particular tablet has Android 2.3. Two questions: can I upgrade to Android 4.0, either now or in the future? Or should I just buy one with 4.0?

I think u should pose that question in the specific tablet forum that you're looking at. I personally wouldn't buy a tablet right now that isn't a minimum of honeycomb (android 3.0), but that's just me. If you're only buying because it's cheap, that's really up to you. I rarely buy tech based on cheaper price. I buy purely based on my needs and likes.

I realise this post is very old but that is some misleading information.

The class only specifies the *minimum* read and write speeds, but doesn't dictate what the maximum is. Therefore there's absolutely no reason why a class 2 can't outpace a class 10 card, and it has been known to happen..

My class 4 Samsung Ultra 8GB reads and writes at around 16-17mbps consistently, which would make it a class 16 if they could guarantee those speeds all the time.

Default SD cards

I have heard for Samsung phones that unless a Samsung brand SD card is used there can be compatability issues (not reading the card). Is this true?

I've also used a few non Samsung brand MicroSD's in my SG2.

That being said, the best 32gb deal going right now is the Samsung Class 10.
