Best microSD Cards For Samsung Galaxy Note 8

by John_A


What’s the best microSD card to use with the Samsung Galaxy Note 8?

2017 is Samsung’s year to make up for the fiasco surrounding last year’s Note 7 —and the Galaxy Note 8 sure seems ready to impress!

If the 64GB of base internal storage on the Note 8 isn’t going to cut it (and you missed out on the pre-order deals that include a 128GB microSD card), 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

  • Samsung MicroSD EVO+ 256GB
  • SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSDXC card
  • SanDisk Extreme PLUS 64GB microSDXC
  • Kingston Digital 64GB microSDXC

Samsung MicroSD EVO+ 256GB


Samsung is offering a 128GB microSD card if you pre-order before September 14 — but what if you want more? You can get that 128GB card for $60 or go all out with the 256GB card for $150. 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.
