Micro SD card recommendation: Internal memory

I read some threads where several people have used 32gb cards and one person mentioned using 128gb but said it was a bad move.

 

Does anyone have a recommendation for a specific SD card to use as internal storage for my 16gb Moto G5?

 

- I have cleared the cache, moved photos/videos etc but keep on finding I have little space left.

Re: Micro SD card recommendation: Internal memory

Uhm, did you not scroll down the list of threads or do a search? There is a previous thread with 9 replies & so recommendations. You could search the web too via say Google. The device Motorola G5 is not really relevant. But anyway, just scroll down the page & you'll find your answer or below this thread are "recommended threads" that are either an exact same question previously asked & answered or a similar question.

 

Search first, ask questions later ..... if you still need to.

I looked at the other thread but didn't see a suitable response so asked again for SD cards available in Summer 2018. Google doesn't necessarily give a correct response - hence me asking here.

Re: Micro SD card recommendation: Internal memory

I have a SanDisk Ultra 128GB microSDXC Memory Card  (Class 10, U1, A1) formatted as adoptable storage in my G5. I've never had any problems with it. Fwiw I bought it from a reputable seller (direct from Amazon). I read about someone having problems with the same card, though they're was bought from Amazon marketplace and may not have been what it was sold as, so beware

Please follow the mentioned link here

 

We recommend the use of a high-speed card, such as a UHS-1 type. Class 4 and Class 2 micro SD cards are not recommended for adopted internal storage usage. The performance of these cards is typically 10x slower than internal storage performance.

 

Thanks

Re: Micro SD card recommendation: Internal memory

Useful linky there Sandip.

As I say, the sandisk ultra I have (uhs-1, class 10) works just fine. As always, be realistic when buying cards online - AliExpress sells enormously capacious cards for pennies, but they tend to be about 64mb formatted so as to reflect a different size!

If it looks too good to be true... you know the rest

Re: Micro SD card recommendation: Internal memory

Is this the kind of card I could use and find works well?
