    Hi All

    I would like to get a microSD card (32gb) for my GN3 but I am sure which make to get. I had a Sandisk (16gb) in my S2 and that worked fine, however I am seeing reviews that state there is a problem with Sandisk and Samsung phones with the cards failing after a few months and people loosing all their stuff. Of course I do not want this to happen. In fact I have seen similar reviews for Samsung, Patriot and Kingston so I am a little weary as which to buy.

    Any advice greatly appreciated
    Thanks

    I am using an original Samsung one which survived the S3, S4 and now the Note 3 accepted it happily :)

    I've been using this one (64GB version as well) and frequently watch 1080p movies on MX player reading from the external card. No hiccups. Flawless.

    SanDisk/Toshiba (they're partners in the factory) and Samsung are the only manufacturers. Everyone else - Kingston, PNY, etc. - are sellers. And some of the stuff they buy to sell is used (read a new card for deleted pictures with ZAR) or substandard.

    If you stick with SanDisk or Samsung you can't go wrong. (Samsung can't argue that their phone doesn't support their card.) At the moment, SanDisk makes the fastest cards, the Extreme. (It's nowhere near as fast as the numbers they give out - which may be for the memory die, not the whole device - but they're measured considerably faster than anyone else's. Try SD Tools and run the speed test.)

    I've even heard of a case of SanDisk replacing a counterfeit card that claimed to be SanDisk. Good company.

    Ahh thank you for that, I didn't think the GN3 supported 64GB so I was going for the 32GB. I will take a look at the thread
