Maximum Useful MicroSD card speed

2020-05-13, 19:07 PM

Hi, I am getting ready to buy a MicroSD card for my G Stylus for use with action cam video.  However, I don't want to pay for extra speed on a card if the hardware is incapable of using it. Can you please tell me the following maximums for the hardware?:


  1. Is the maximum usable bus speed rating UHS-I(UHS50), UHS-I(UHS104), UHS-II(FULL), UHS-II(HALF), UHS-III or SD Express.
  2. Is the maximum usable UHS class U1 or U3?
  3. is the maximum usable Video Speed Class V10, V30, V60, or V90?
  4. is the Application Performance Class A1 or A2?


Thanks for your help.

Hi PatrickRio,


This is interesting. The phone can support up to 512 GB microSD card. A Class 2, 4, or 6 card is sufficient, but usually those are the sd card with a lower storage. Here are what I know:


  1. SDXC 1 or SDXC 2 are enough. I haven't seen an SDXC 3 so far.
  2. I would suggest using UHS 3. It also connected to the video speed of the sd card.
  3. UHS 1 = V10 while the USH 3 = V30. V30 is usually enough, it can records 1080/4K video @60/120fps. While the V60 and V90 can record 8K video. 
  4. A2 is recommended for a higher SD card storage.


Best regards,
