While the average amount of storage on high-end smartphones has grown over the years, so too has the amount of space Android, manufacturers, carriers, and just about everyone else who wants a piece of your gee-bees. A 64GB smartphone can feel downright cramped in 2020, and yet, many companies (like Google) continue to sell phones with this base level of storage. Simply installing all your favorite apps and getting set up can get you well over the halfway mark on such a phone, and as app cache, media, and photos and videos begin to build up, you can quickly find yourself running out of space.
Dolphin is an incredibly popular emulator for the Nintendo Wii and GameCube, and the Android version has been improving more and more lately. The app recently gained dark mode support, and now more features from the desktop emulator are coming to mobile.
Micro SD support may be less common these days, but there are still plenty of devices that can utilize them. For the most part, SD cards have gotten quite affordable, but larger storage sizes are still a bit past impulse buy territory. If you act fast, though, you can save a whopping 40% on PNY's U3 Pro range.
Even though our phones' internal storage capacity is increasing, so are file sizes. This is why we may sometimes need a little extra space, and MicroSD cards are a convenient way of achieving this. In case you're looking for one, SanDisk's 256GB A1-rated Ultra card is down to $29 on Amazon, instead of its usual $39.
Do you need a little extra storage in your phone, tablet, Nintendo Switch, or other microSD-enabled device? If so, you might be interested to hear that the 256GB SanDisk Extreme card is just $39.99 on Amazon, a $5 drop from the previous price, and an all-time low. Other capacities are also on sale.
Most current phones come with a decent amount of onboard storage. However, media files and apps are also increasingly heavier, meaning you can quickly run out of space on your device. Thankfully, a wide range of handsets and tablets have a microSD slot to accommodate for extra storage. If you're looking for one, you're in luck, as PNY's 32GB and 64GB microSDXC cards are discounted on Amazon, selling for $9 and $13, respectively.
Amazon's Fire tablets are usually a great value, but they typically come with less internal storage than most smartphones. The cheapest models come with just 16GB of space, with less than that available for downloading apps and storing data.
In this guide, we'll go over some ways you can clear up the junk on your Fire tablet.
Huawei has had a rough week — it was added to the US Entity List, and soon it will be cut off from most of the manufacturers and companies it relies on to make products. While perhaps not the most devastating blow Huawei has been dealt in recent days, it has now been excluded from the associations responsible for the development Wi-Fi, SD, and some USB standards.
Flash storage prices are a constant race to the bottom, but I still find myself amazed at some deals, like today's sale on the 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSD card. At a price of just $25, or 12.50¢/GB, this marks a new low for the SanDisk Ultra lineup, with all the other cards in this category being priced between 15 and 20¢/GB.
If you find that today's largest microSD cards just aren't enough for you, SanDisk has you covered. The company just announced the 1TB Extreme at MWC, a ridiculous amount of storage in a tiny, tiny form factor. It won't come cheap, though, ringing it at a staggering $449.99 MSRP.
