    Excuse my newbness as I am a new Droid owner coming from apple and this whole SD card thing is new to me.

    Is there a specific one that works best with the S3 that I should get?

    I'm on Amazon and looking to grab one as I don't want all of my photos to bog down the memory on the phone.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated and if someone can link the best one to get on amazon that would be a great help too!:)


    Thanks in advance

    I say look for a SanDisk one on Amazon. The device can support up to 64GB, but you have to consider what you may put on the device to determine the size card you need.

    I only have a 16GB one...

    Is sandisk a better brand and shown to work best for the s3?

    I only plan to put small video clips and photos on the SD instead of keeping them on the s3 hard drive.

    You might want to check out the following thread:

    MicroSD Suggestions?

    There are lots of suggestions. In my opinion, the 32 GB cards offer the best value (< $25), but there are lots of other opinions.

    Thank you for the link

    Yikes,seems lots of corrupt or bad cards being sold on amazon. May have to pick and choose wisely.

    Or just hit up best buy and grab one.

    I have had good luck with NewEgg and Amazon (provided Amazon *is* the seller and not some third party). You are generally going to pay a premium @ BB.
