who runs apps via SD card nowadays?

Brilliant price, super fast speeds!! Beware not all devices will accept A1 cards though!

Micro SD cards have a lot more uses than just storing android games on.

Anyone can advise if this is any good for a go pro hero 5 or is it too slow?

Would rather buy Samsung U3 class card for same price after VC5 code

A1 is just the SD card equivalent of Domino's certifying that your pizza won't be cold by the time you get it.

The non-A1 Samsung Evo+ for example is faster than this A1 certified card in read/write operations.

A1 is "specifically designed for android apps".
If you aren't fussed on the A1 you can buy normal for £1 less...

Free MyMemory 16GB Elite USB 2.0 Flash Drive (Allegedly worth £6.99) when purchasing the non-A1 Samsung EVO+ (or any other item over £15).
I suppose it will be a Black Friday thing. Don't forget the "VC5" discount code to get the 64GB microSD card (and the free present for £18.99

I'm not sure what that is but I assume alternative brands would have built in memory.
For the money you save by not needing to buy sd card memory (plus the performance increase on built in memory, plus the faff of compatibility etc etc) it's probably worth that alternative brand/product.

(I am still talking about the point of using sd cards to run apps).

Yep I know what you mean, I am unable to do the unified storage option on the Sony Xperia M4 aqua which is why I'm considering upgrading to the Sony Xperia xz which is what I meant.

I do. Gear VR games can be huge so I just transfer them over to the SD card.

Does anyone know why memory has gone up considerably in the last 2 years? Is it just supply and demand?

Thanks for this. Bought a 32gb sandisk extreme for £13.59

You say that as if everyone used to run apps from SD card and now they don't, but isn't it really the other way around?
I mean it used to be that SD cards in Android phones were always treated as separate (removable) storage and you could only move certain apps over to them - some you couldn't move at all, and that was because they wouldn't run properly or fast enough from SD card. But now SD cards are faster and Android 6.0 introduced the option to format them as internal storage, because you can now get ones that are as fast as phones' internal flash storage - and this is only a recent development because Android 6.0 came out 2 years ago and most SD cards aren't fast enough to be used with this feature - I had a 32gb Class 10 card and, if I tried it, it would give me a message warning me that I might have performance issues; I tried it anyway and it was pretty slow - I need a faster card.
So really the question is, who isn't running apps from SD card nowadays? Because since when did phones come with enough internal storage for all the apps and media you want?

No, it's a completely different measurement of the card's speed.

All previous rating systems have referred to the card's minimum sequential write speed.
E.g. a Class 10 card meant that the card was certified to have a minimum sequential write speed of 10MBytes/second.
Now the UHS (Ultra High Speed) rating measures sequential write speed in multiples of 10MB/s - e.g. UHS I is 10MB/s, UHS III is 30MB/s. There's also the Video Speed Class, rated as V6 up to V90, where the number is again the minimum sequential write speed in MB/s.

The 'A' rating instead refers to the card's minimum random read and write speeds, which are far more relevant when it comes to running apps smoothly.
High sequential read/write speeds are great for things like recording or watching a video, but apps typically consist of hundreds or thousands of smaller files that all need to be accessed at pretty much the same time, so it's more important that a card have high random read/write speeds (it's the same reason why having an SSD in your PC will make Windows load and run so much faster but won't make much difference when it comes to watching a video file).

A1 cards have a minimum random read speed of 1500 IOPS (input/output operations per second) and write speed of 500 IOPS.
A2 cards have a minimum random read speed of 4000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) and write speed of 2000 IOPS.

However both have only a minimum sequential write speed of 10MB/s - which is the same as Class 10 or UHS I. So you could take three different Class 10 cards and find that one is very fast for running apps, one is good enough and one is terrible. Basically 'Class' or 'UHS' means nothing when it comes to running apps and that is why the 'A' rating is important. In fact, if you read some reviews of the Samsung EVO+ you'll see that it's been criticised for its low random speeds, so it would almost certainly be worse than this card for running apps.

TL;DR - 'Class' and/or 'UHS' measure sequential read/write speeds. 'A' measures random read/write speeds. When it comes to media, sequential is more important, but when it comes to apps, random is more important. If you want to run apps from an SD card, try to get one that's A1 or A2 rated.

(If this was Dominos, 'Class' would be certifying that your pizza isn't cold by the time you get it, 'A' would be certifying that it would actually have the right topping. Getting both would be nice.)

Did you really waste half an hour of your life typing up that rubbish?

Did you really waste half an hour of your life typing up that rubbish?


It was more like 2 minutes because I type fast and the stats were copied and pasted from Wikipedia.

And would you mind pointing out exactly which bit is rubbish? Because it's all factual technical information about how storage works and understanding it might actually help people make buying decisions (as opposed to making some flippant comment about pizza).

To slow for 4k records... paid 17.99 64gb u3 samsung evo plus from mymemory two months ago...
Edited by: "_taurus_" 26th Nov

Are these cards suitable for the Nintendo switch?

I paid 17.99 from their website about 5 days ago.

Thanks I got the £17.99 one
