The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge feature the triumphant return of expandable storage to Samsung's flagship phone line (without Android 6.0's adoptable storage function, unfortunately). So while you're waiting for your new phone to ship, you need to track down a high-capacity MicroSD card to stick inside it. If you head over to Amazon, you can find a positively massive 200GB SanDisk Ultra card for just $79.99. That matches the lowest price we've seen on this particular card, and it qualifies for free shipping even if you don't subscribe to Amazon Prime.
Other capacities of the same card are also on sale: the 128GB version is $50, the 64GB version is just $23, and a 32GB card can be yours for $12.54. Read More

Lexar currently has their top tier 128GB MicroSD card on sale for just $59.99 on Amazon. We've seen cheaper deals on 128GB MicroSD cards here at Android Police, but we have never seen a MicroSD card as speedy as this one sell for such a low price.
That speed is what sets this Lexar card apart. Using the included USB 3.0 reader, these cards can transfer files at a blistering 95MB/s, which is twice the transfer speed of the 128GB cards on sale last month. The card is also very highly reviewed, sporting a 4.6 star rating with 1,600 reviews. Read More

The price on SanDisk's largest microSD card just keeps dropping like a rock. I mean, like... a rock with another heavier rock tied to it or something. After hitting $135 about a week ago, the 200GB microSD card is now $99.99 on Amazon. That's a lot of storage. Read More
If your modern phone or tablet doesn't have a MicroSD card slot like many Android flagships and mid-tier devices released in the last couple of years, you have a few limited options to transfer data between it and other devices or computers.

If you don't, you can pick one of the best ones for cheap on Amazon today.
SanDisk's Ultra USB 3.0 flash drives with a MicroUSB connector are on sale now. Read More
MicroSD cards come in a variety of sizes, but the largest ones give us something to aim for. They're aspirational. No, I'm not going to spend $400 on one when it first comes out, but I know that someday, eventually, I too will be able to afford nice things. And sure enough, the price comes down. Then it drops again. And again. And again. Read More
