What’s the best microSD card to use with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8?
The Galaxy Note 8 is an absolute workhorse of a phone. You can do more than any other phone with the S Pen, and really the only limitations you’ll face will be battery life and internal storage.
If the 64GB of base internal storage on the Note 8 isn’t going to cut it, you’ll want to invest in a quality microSD card and add up to 256GB of additional storage. That means you’ll have more space for all your music, 4K videos, photos, and whatever else you want to store. Best of all, the prices for microSD cards are getting better and better! Here are the latest and greatest deals we could find!
- Samsung microSD EVO+ 256GB
- SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSDXC card
- SanDisk Extreme Plus 64GB microSDXC
- Kingston Digital 64GB microSDXC
Samsung microSD EVO+ 256GB
Using Samsung’s own microSD card offerings might make sense if you’re a huge Samsung fan, and it also helps that they’re some of the best you can buy. You can get that 128GB card for just $36 or go all out with the 256GB card for a breezy $85. Both cards feature read speeds up to 95MB/s and write speeds up to 90MB/s, meaning they will be able to handle whatever you throw at it.
Whichever you go with, you can be sure that it’ll work perfectly with your Note 8 and provide you all the storage space you desire so you never have to delete photos and videos.
