    A little known fact is that most new phones that have micro sdcard support actually support expandable storage up to 2TB! The Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge support 2TB of expandable storage even though Samsung only advertises 200GB. The reason they only advertise 200GB is because it would sound pretty gimmicky to advertise 2TB support when such a micro sdcard doesn't even exists.

    Samsung is getting us closer to such a micro sdcard with their upcoming 256GB micro sdcard. The card features read/write speeds of 95MBs and 90MBs. The card will go on sale in June for $249.99. With this card you would be able to store 55,200 photos, 12 hours of 4k video, and 23,500 mp3 files. This card is also waterproof and magnet proof.

    Why would anyone need a 256G SD?

    250$, it's really expensive, I wonder if the manufacturing's costs reach the 50$

    My understanding is the more they "run" or make at a time the lower the cost gets. As the higher capacity ones sell more, the more they make of them, thus lowering the cost which the savings gets passed on to us. As a former production manager I used to attempt to put like batches of my product behind each other because each order required setup time and any time I could run 2, or more, of the same setup it saved me time, thus more profitable. I did it more to for delivery scheduling help but the extra profit made my bosses happy. If I understand correctly with memory it's the same principle.

    Why would anyone need 2GB of ram on a phone? Why would anyone need a TB hard drive on a desktop?

    What would happen if you out this card in an older phone, like the Note Edge?

    It would read/write its maximum ability and ignore the rest. On an OLDER digital camera it was capable of 128MB of sd card and all I had was a 256. It acted as if there was a 128MB card in all aspects, even saying card full when I reached the max rated. I don't remember where I read it but if memory serves the Note4 and Note Edge are capable of 1TB cards. I'll look it up if I get time and don't forget to confirm.
    I was wrong. It's larger than 1TB
    200gb micro sd cards work fine with note 4 • /r/galaxynote4

    1 TB, my little phone? If that's the case, maybe I'll get the 256 GB card.

    Boy, that brings back a memory.
    My first desktop (early 90's) came with a 20 Meg hard drive. My buddy who was a computer geek was soooooo jealous, and said it would last me a lifetime.

    Pictures, videos, music and apps take up 60gb on my phone. And I haven't shot a single 4k video.

    2 hours of 4k video would take up 48gb.

    People that have no idea how technology works and think they need to record everything in 4k.
