Amazon is currently running discounts on many of Samsung's EVO Select Micro SD Cards. This includes the 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models. Discounting them up to 40-percent, which makes it a great time to pick up one or more, micro SD cards. Seeing as you never know when your current SD card may fail. Right now, you can find the 64GB EVO Select Micro SD Card for $14.99, the 128GB is priced at $29.99 and the 256GB is priced at $69.99. Which brings these down to their all-time lowest prices - a new all-time low for the 256GB version.
The Samsung EVO Select line up micro SD cards boasts some pretty fast speeds. We're looking at 100MB/s read and 60MB/s write on these cards. These are Class 10 UHS 3 cards, and that means that they will be fast enough to use for recording 4K footage from your smartphone. This is an important feature, seeing as slower micro SD cards will take longer to write to the card, which means that you'll have to wait for it to finish before you can shoot more video or take more photos. This is also a great card for mobile gaming, especially for games that can be stored on the micro SD card. Allowing you to really save room on your smartphone. Because these cards are pretty fast, you can run games and apps from the micro SD card and never really worry about it slowing down.
While micro SD cards are largely only used in smartphones these days, these will work in other devices as well. Like action cameras from YI and GoPro, as well as dash cameras. But Samsung also includes a full-sized SD card adapter, so these can also be used in a DSLR, or something else that uses an SD card. Of course, this is a great micro SD card to pick up for the Galaxy Note 9, especially if you have the 128GB model, you can add another 256GB of storage for just $69.99 and really have your full music library on your smartphone without having to worry about streaming from the cloud. Now that right there is definitely an advantage. Of course there are some other smartphones that have micro SD card slots like the LG G7 ThinQ, V40 ThinQ, Honor View 10, 8X, Huawei Mate 10 Pro, Moto G6, G6 Play and G6 Plus among many others out there. But you're going to want to pick these up before they are gone, as they won't last long.
