[Ultra Fast Storage] Forget MicroSD cards, Samsung introduces UFS removable cards with up to 530MB/s read speeds

Samsung has been championing Universal Flash Storage (UFS) storage for a couple of years now. Back in February of 2015, it started mass producing embeddable UFS chips at up to 128GB capacity to replace the typical eMMC cards that smartphones had been using previously and provide super fast read, write, and random read and write speeds. The goal, at the time, was to convince users to dump external MicroSD cards and see the benefit of fast embedded storage, which was even later raised to 256GB. That strategy, which was carried out in the Galaxy S6 (and corresponding line-up), didn't pan out all that well with the company's avid power users who loved the flexibility of removable storage, and Samsung resolved to adding back the MicroSD slot the next year in the Galaxy S7.

[Deal Alert] 128GB Sony MicroSD Card On Sale For $33.50 At Amazon, 32GB For $9

Amazon has Sony memory cards on sale today and the 128GB and 32GB cards are both great values. Right now you can pick up the 128GB card for $33.50 and just $9 will buy you the 32GB chip. Not a bad price, not bad at all.

A microSD card is a microSD card, right? Not quite. Some are better suited for certain tasks than others. If you want to record video, you will benefit from using a high-speed card.

[Sweet Deal Alert] SanDisk's 200GB MicroSD Card Is Down To $59.99 On Amazon Gold Box, 128GB $34.99

Let's not beat around the bush. You know what a MicroSD card is, you know which devices can use it and which ones can't, you know some new flagships support it but don't have adoptable storage, et cetera. What you came here to see is what this card is all about and the link to get it before stock runs out as fast as Scooby-Doo from a haunted house.

SanDisk makes great MicroSD cards. This model in particular has 200GB of storage which is the most you can get from the company now. It's more than six times the size of a modern flagship's 32GB internal memory.

[Deal Alert] Samsung 128GB EVO Class 10 MicroSD Card Drops Back Down To $39.99 On Amazon

I like microSD cards. No trusting your data to file hosting services. No being dependent on having access to Wi-Fi or having to worry about burning through your cellular data allotment. You know your files are accessible when you want them.

When you're looking to buy a microSD card, one aspect to consider is whether it's big. Small is fine, but really, what you want is big. 32GB holds more music than 16GB. 64GB puts 32GB to shame. 128GB crushes them both.

[Deal Alert] Highly Rated Silicon Power MicroSD Cards Are On Sale Super Cheap At Amazon: $33 For 128GB, $15 For 64GB

Silicon Power is not a brand you've probably ever heard of (I for sure hadn't before today). Their name kinda sounds like it would belong to a labor union representing the robot uprising. Well, it turns out they don't provide legal counsel to the likes of Wall-E and R2D2, these guys make MicroSD cards.

They must do an alright job, because they have a 4.5 star rating with over 1,200 reviews. Their whole lineup of class 10 UHS-1 memory cards is currently on sale, and the prices are pretty doggone compelling.

Those are some low prices, about a third less than what you can expect to pay for name brand cards from the likes of SanDisk or Samsung, which are also rated at 4.5 stars.

[Weekend Poll] Does Your Phone Have A MicroSD Card? Do You Use It?

The price-per-gigabyte of microSD cards has absolutely plummeted over the last 5 years. Yesterday, Amazon had a 24-hour deal on a SanDisk 200GB microSD for just $80. That's scarcely more than what a decent 240GB SSD costs these days.

So, does your smartphone have a microSD slot? We know most of our audience are Nexus phone users, so most of you should answer "no" to this question just based on our web metrics. But I'm more interested in, if it does have one, whether or not you actually use it.

MicroSD cards have something of a tortured history in relation to Android smartphones.
