    When big OEMs began to remove the sdcard reader from their flagship lineups one of the main reasons was that apps stored there wouldn't perform well since micro sdcards were slower than built in storage. The pitch was to buy more onboard storage for use with apps and to just back up photos and videos to the cloud. In the past few years OEMs added back expandable storage due to consumer backlash for removing it at first their software would not allow you to put apps on the external storage, but now more and more OEMs are allowing you to move your apps to storage.

    SanDisk has just released a micro sdcard that is meant to speed up app performance. The A1 rating delivers faster application performance. The cards are able to manage random IOPS operations which helps to quickly open apps and process the tasks that accompany them. The card provides 400GB of storage. Read speeds can reach as high as 100MB/s. The card also includes water, shock, temp, and x-ray protection. You can order yours from the link below.

    Me too! That's a crazy price. I'm sure the price will come done as these get more common.

    Yeah, I don't need a lot of storage for apps and other things....but I DO have a ton of music that I like to have an sd card for (makes transferring files easy when I can just pop the card into my PC).

    While manufacturers have offered many good excuses for eliminating the SD, the main reason always and everywhere is that they charge about 4X for internal storage as SD cards usually cost.

    The 200/256GB cards have been out for a while, and are down to $0.45-$0.60 per GB....so in time this card should be in the $180 range, and probably less given $250 isn't a bad introductory price in comparison. Also, consider the Sandisk Extreme 512GB SDXC card is $300!

    I remember being excited when double-density floppy disks came out. Remember dialing lists of numbers on my 2400 baud modem trying to find a BBS to download games from.

    yep some of us are old. we were there from the beginning :p

    but it is still amazing how small 400 gigs of memory can be these days compared to the days of punch cards and floppies.

    Ok, probably a stupid question but I got to ask... most phones with expandable storage allow a maximum 64, 128 or 256gb storage. Would this card work when those are the limits?
