    What is the best SD memory card for Note 4 in 2015? Would like to use the same SD cards on Note 4 and camera. Are the micro SD to full sized SD adapters reliable enough to use frequently or should I get some type of external USB card reader? Features that matter are:

    - Reliability?

    - Durability?

    - Transfer Speed?

    - Class 4, 6 or 10?

    - SDHC or SDXC?

    - micro SD to full size SD Adapter?

    - Price?

    - Brand?

    What other features matter?

    Thanks!

    I found this article,may be of interest to you:

    http://havecamerawilltravel.com/photographer/fastest-microsd-cards

    I'm not a camera buff myself,so,I can't give an informed opinion as far as the photog side of things.
    Hopefully others that have actual real-world use/experience w/a variety of SD Cards &/or cameras will pop-in.

    It might help to include the make/model of camera(s) you'll be swapping the cards with.

    I agree about the Samsung pro class

    it's currently in use and it does what it's suppose to do

    An important point is to ensure you're buying from a reputable source, and not eBay or Chinese wholesalers. Counterfeit SDs are very disappointing.

    I've had very poor luck with Sandisk cards. My Samsung card has been flawless on two different Samsung phones.

    I had two SanDisk 64gb microsd cards go bad on me. For less money I bought a 64 GB & 128 GB Samsung microsd, so far, so good. Got them on Amazon.

    I use SanDisk 64gb and haven't had a problem but then again there's bad batches in almost everything.

    I've used SanDisk, Samsung, and a few others. Seems all work fine in all the devices I use them in. SD is SD is SD nowadays... as long as it's from a reputable company. I buy from Costco or Amazon.

    I had a PNY 32gb class 10 card fail recently and of course I never backed up my stuff!
    Our Galaxy camera 2 has run flawlessly with the Toshiba 32gb class 10 card, so I got another for my phone ☺
