I am living proof that the cards are failing in Samsung phones. My 32gb SanDisk went bad in 1week and it was stock, not even rooted. Talk about $60 wasted. I had just gotten the Note 2 and was unaware of the problem. I purchased a Samsung card and ironically the same thing happened, but the Samsung card still works in other phones and it’s not completely roasted. I want to say it Is a phone issue, but it seems like the Samsung phones don’t corrupt their brand of SD completely as they destroy SanDisk cards. Galaxy note 2 are also said to have issues with 32gb cards so I went to 16gb and haven’t had problems since, unfortunate but who cares. Hence why amazon is selling them for cheap. Everyone has a Samsung phone duh. Do the math, demand went down, so you lower the price to attempt to regain demand…
Personally, I have had a 64Gb Sandisk Ultra SDXC since day 1 on my Galaxy S3 (stock) and have never had any issues until recently (late March or early April). When a card gets 3/4 full I start to see major issues with crashes, random reboots (usually when writing to the cars in the camera app) and sloooooow reads and writes to the SD card. I have confirmed it with the 64Gb Sandisk and also an older Class 4 32Gb Sandisk non-Ultra.
16GB iPhone got you down? Apple doesn't offer an easy way to augment your phone's storage, but plenty of third parties have tried to make it possible. They've tried , , and even . Now SanDisk is joining the fun with an alternate option that looks at least passably attractive. Its includes both USB and Lightning connectors, providing what will theoretically be an easy way to offload files from your phone or tablet while still making them easy to get at.
Generally, those “other” brands are less reliable and slower than genuine Sandisk cards. I have had issues in particular with Transcend and A-Data cards over the years.
