The best microSD cards for your Galaxy Note 9

by John_A

The Note 9 is one of the few phones with expandable storage — take advantage of it!


The Galaxy Note 9 comes with a hefty amount of storage with the base model at 128GB, but if you want to get more with the 512GB variant, you need to cough up another $250. Granted that version also comes with an extra 2GB of RAM, but that’s still a lot more money on top of an already expensive phone.

Thankfully, you don’t have to splurge for the 512GB Note 9 just to get more storage space. Instead, you can pick up a microSD card for a lot less money and still give yourself some more wiggle room.

Need some help deciding which one deserves your dollars? Here are our picks for the best microSD cards for the Galaxy Note 9!

  • Silicon Power 32GB High Speed microSD Card
  • SanDisk Ultra 64GB microSDXC Card
