    Today I made an upgrade from a SanDisk microSD 8GB to a 32 GB Kingston microSD but for the while it keeps showing that it goes into read-only mode because the SD card started working incorrectly. So I did formatting, unmounted and mounted again to see if it would fix and guess what? It keeps happening. I don't know what to do. My phone is Samsung Galaxy A01 (16GB ver.)

    Could be the it's faulty, duff or fake? Because it should work no problems. Where did you buy the Kingston micro-SD? There are a lot counterfeit Kingston, SanDisk, and Samsung micro-SDs around, especially when bought cheap online, like from Ebay, etc.

    I bought it from an all phone/electronic retailer shop.

    It should just work no problems in your Galaxy A01, especially a low capacity micro-SD like 32GB.
    Suggest you check it with SD Insight, and it should show the manufacturer as "Kingston".

    You may want to return it for exchange or refund, if it doesn't work out.

    That doesn't really a mean a lot to me, especially where I am(China).

    I bought a new Samsung 512GB micro-SD for my phone, and as I wanted to be sure what I got was genuine and not duff or fake, I bought it directly from Samsung.

    So yes, the SD card is definitely a fake one. Did a test last night with True SD Card apk and thr maximum capacity is 12 GB. I am going to the store to get my refund.
