    It really depends on what all you're gonna put on it. If you root and flash ROMs a lot, I recommend a 32GB. I have a 16 in my D3 but want to upgrade.

    Ok. Thanks!! I'm basically just wanting to store pictures, videos, and music. Do you think a 16g is ok?

    I think 16 Gigs should be good for you. As long you don't have movies stored on there lol.

    I got one of these too.
    Fast, stable, great price and warranty.
    They also have an app for backups if you choose to use it.
    I have not but some reviews show people like it.

    The price of MicroSDs have gone way down. I plan on Picking up a 64GB Sandisk Ultra Class 10. Newegg has them for $60. I already have a Sandisk 32GB which I paid $80 back in January.

    Be careful. It is not uncommon for a seller time send a knock off.

    I personally would not go below 32 gb. I do not do movies, just music and photos and eventually found myself running out of room when I had 32 gb total. I bought a class 10 64gb card off Amazon for $30. I downloaded every album I wanted from my computer and still have 40gb to play with.

    A bit of a side question. If you have a 16GB card in your phone and buy a 32 GB card, how do you get all the stuff transferred from the old to the new card?

    Brand of SD Card

    Currently, I have a Patriot 16 GB Class 10 MicroSD card. I am considering a 64 GB Class 10 MicroSD card. Based on some research on other android forums, I have found that most formatted their 32 and 64 gb microSD cards to FAT32. What I am trying to decide on is whether the brand makes much of a difference. I have had good luck with Patriot brand. What about the "microSD" cards that are less expensive compared to Sandisk, Kingston, Patriot, etc?

    For instance, take this 64 GB microSD card.

    64 GB Micro SD Memory Card and Adapter Class 10 | eBay

    Compared to this one:
    kgrhqyokosffz3fq8mbreni.jpg

    SanDisk Mobile Ultra Class10 64GB MicroSD Micro SDXC UHS I U1 Flash Memory Card 619659078652 | eBay

    With both of them being a Class 10, is speed really that much of a difference?

    If you are running a 64GB microSD card with your Galaxy S3, which one did you buy?
