Question

Anybody who has used 32-64GB micro sd on Samsung Galaxy 3?

I have seen two variants of these cards over the web. Class 4 which has 4MB/s Write speed and Class 10 which has about 20MB/s Write speed.

Have even heard that the bigger micro SDs are slowing down the device. Is it not the case? Has anybody used it and how is the performance??

Looking for the bigger micro SDs as I am really not sure about the file size of the the best encoding format(AVI I guess) when an MKV HD file(about 14GB Size) is converted to play in Samsung Galaxy S3. Please throw some light on this as well!!!!

Micro sd

The larger capacity variations are SDHC cards.

So far, 32GB cards all around.

Bigger drives are classically slower for the usual reasons. Not to upset you, but how new are you to computers in general.

My first big machine was some Xenix machine where we had to keep directories (folk today call them folders) to 32 or less files each to keep the speed up.

Do you recall why?

Nice

Right!!! Even my first PC was a 386 System which had 5.1 and 3.44 Floppy drives...As the time passed by, we even have 3TB External Hard drives.

Same with the mobile phones...where the first break through mobile like Nokia 6600 could only support MMCs of size 512MB and now we are seeing the bigger ones. Just wanted to know how the device S3 is performing with the 32GB variant.

I have access to too many Android things.

These are not mine but at the office where we work on porting apps. While we don't have the S3 today I've seen little difference between models. But with exceptions.

What exceptions? We had a few of those no-name android tablets (junk things?) and those had really odd issues. Including sluggish miniSD write speeds. Read speeds were fast enough that we never gave it any thought.

Going with it then!!!

So I can go with the 32GB model without any further doubts????

Sorry if my answer sounds bad or worse.

The 32GB minisd card price has fallen to a point that almost every device at home and office uses that size. I'm sure there are folk itching for more but for now 32GB is the safe spot to get one in there.

You still encounter folk that have 5 to 6 figures of CDs they want to carry with them so for those folk they need a HDD based unit.

About 32-64GB micro sd slots

Hey,
I have also scenes there is difference between the big sd and micro sd cards, but i thought that the process is slow when you are using high capacity memory cards is not a right answer, and another thing the low capacity sd cards are fast, this is also not absolute answer in my sense, why because its depend upon the o.s which product are you using and which process your product will contained like that...
