Part 2. How to Choose a Right Micro SD Card for Your Device

The need to expand the storage capacity of any device has given rise to numerous different types of SD cards flooding the market. While the wide variety is of great advantage to you as the consumer, there is often confusion on the right Micro SD card to choose for your particular device. The following are just some of the things you should look out for.

1. Ensure your device supports MicroSD

Before we get ahead of ourselves, the first thing you should do is to ensure that your device actually supports Micro SD cards. Ensure that the device has a Micro SD slot. If it does, you are ready to buy one.

2. The different between SDHC and SDXC

One of the things you will notice when you want to buy a Micro SD card is that there are two types, SDHC and SDXC. The difference is that SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) can store up to 32GB data while SDXC (Secure Digital Extended Capacity) can store 65GB and above. So really, the one you choose to buy depends on the amount of data you would like to store.

3. What Different classes mean

You will also notice that different Micro SD cards are classified into various classes that are numbered as class 2, 4, 6 and 10. Don’t let these classes confuse you when you go out to buy a Micro SD card. They simply refer to the minimum rates at which these cards can transfer data. For example, a class 2 Micro SD card will transfer data at 2MB/s and a class 10 will transfer data at 10MB/s.

4. Micro SD Cards and Device speed

The most important question when looking for an SD card is whether or not it will improve the performance of your device. If you are going to use it to store photos and apps then a higher speed Micro SD card will definitely improve data transfers ad save photos faster and as a direct consequence improve the performance of your device.

That said, it is still worth noting that apps stored on an SD card will open at significantly slower speeds as compared to those stored on the phone's internal memory simply because there is an extra layer of communication between the phone and the SD card that needs to be carried out.

5. UHS on a Micro SD Card

Another thing you will notice when purchasing MicroSD cards is UHS. They are generally categorized as either UHS-1 or UHS-3 compatible. These UHS cards can reach data transfer speeds of up to 312 MB/s with a minimum transfer speed of up to 10 MB/s. currently no smartphone supports the UHS standard so even if you were to purchase a UHS compatible Micro SD, you may only realistically get the minimum 10 MB/s speeds.
