The days of every Android phone featuring expandable storage are long gone, but that doesn't mean that SD cards have died out. Chromebooks, game consoles, cameras — even the latest Chromecast with Google TV benefits from some extra space. If you're looking for some new expandable storage, Amazon has a ton of options from Lexar on sale as its Deal of the Day. Read More
There was a time when internal storage was increasing at a fairly steady rate, but that trend seems to have halted. However, we're still seeing sizes going up for games, apps, movies, and just about everything else. If you're looking to loosen up the storage bottleneck on an old phone, or maybe have a decent place to dump photos or videos, you can pick up a Lexar microSD card for a really accessible price.

You can buy a phone with a bunch of built-in storage, but you could save money going with microSD cards. You could save even more money waiting for sales.
What's that? Yes, there is one going on right now. How did you know? Read More
Are MicroSD cards cheap nowadays or what? I remember buying my first 128MB (that's MEGAbytes) card sometime in 2005 and here we are talking about affordable 128GB cards in 2016! If you're good at math, you'd know that we multiplied the storage by a thousand and something and we're still somewhere in the same price ballpark. Crazy.
This Lexar 128GB is a Class 10 card that can read files at up to 95MB/s and write at up to 20MB/s. It comes with a USB 3.0 reader too so you can transfer your files quickly to a computer. It's using the old packaging though, which apparently makes it ripe for discounts. 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
Amazon's Gold Box deal today includes a ton of flash memory from Crucial and Lexar. However, most of it is of little relevance to Android devices. I mean, unless there's a phone or tablet with a 2.5-inch SATA drive I'm not aware of. What you can get are these Lexar microSD cards. They're up to 66% off. Read More
Gather 'round external storage lovers. You've been forsaken by Google, abandoned by Samsung, and left to feel needy and irrational in the face of the totalitarian internal-storage-or-nothing regime, but the times they are a-changin'. Google's own stance in Android M seems to be shifting toward accepting all phones no matter what they are, including the imperfect little information carriers that may need an external boost in their storage every now and then. Who knows, we might even live to see a Nexus with a MicroSD slot again. Stranger things have happened.
So if you're a rebellious soul, still carrying a smartphone with a hole in its side (or rear, we won't judge), and you know that no amount of storage is enough storage, you may want to head on over to this Lexar listing on Amazon. Read More
Today's Amazon Gold Box daily deal is all about Lexar memory, and in not-so-modest sizes and speeds. Nope, these are not your bottom of the barrel memory cards and flash drives on offer. Those most relevant to your phone needs, the microSD cards, boast UHS-I/U3 speeds, meaning they meet the second-most rigorous speed specification in the industry. The deals are good too, matching the lowest price Amazon has ever offered for them.
You'll see 32, 64, and 128 gigabyte variants of the microSD and the larger two sizes for the SD card. The microSD cards are, as previously mentioned, rated for 95MB/s read speeds in accordance with the UHS-I specification. Read More
