Majority of smartphones, even those present in the mid-ranged hardware category have started to feature expansion storage slots that can support cards all the way up to 200GB (case in point will be HTC One A9). For the longest time, SanDisk Ultra was available in the 200GB capacity, as well as smaller capacity models, but they were priced too high to be entertained by majority of consumers.
Now, SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSD card is available for just a $100 bill and while it might be slower compared to the next generation of storage cards being introduced, it is still able to provide users with huge amounts of storage inside their very own smartphone, or tablet. According to the company’s product page, SanDisk Ultra is able to deliver a transfer speed up to 90MB/s. Keep in mind that these are sequential speeds and if you happen to be reading and/or writing random data to and from the storage card, then speeds will gradually reduce.
However, apart from the fact that 200GB is definitely a mouthful for consumers, SanDisk Ultra also comes with several protections designed to increase the longevity of the storage card. It features the following protections:
- Water proof
- Temperature proof
- Shock proof
- X-ray proof
- Magnet proof
If your smartphone is unable to provide support for a 200GB microSD card, then there are other alternatives for you to choose from, which are present in the 128 and 64GB storage models. There are lower storage models of the microSD card present as well, but with newer smartphones being introduced in the market with a higher support capacity, we doubt that you will entertain such a purchase, unless of course you are in the possession of a previous generation smartphone, or if you are on a tight budget. Regardless, all the cards’ pricing details have been stated below. Tell us which storage card you would like to purchase and why.
