Think this is the lowest price you will find for it. Unfortunately no other option if you are looking to expand your P30 Pro

These things are only fractionally smaller than Micro SD cards. It's just a scam to fleece customers.

Yes I see it like the Apple stunts with all their connectors. However if you want to expand your Huawei phone, this is how you can do it.
Does anyone know of any imitation versions?

Plenty on amazon but personally wouldnt trust a copy.
Need more local storage than 128gb / 256gb? I get it if you are on o2 or Vodafone where their internet isn't fast enough to prevent buffering but since moving to EE all those years ago I've never needed that much local storage.

What are people filling their phones with?

Spotify, Netflix, 4k videos, gaming apps...

Exactly, with the exception of gaming they are all cloud based apps - surely you don't need that much offline storage if you are already on 128/256gb.

Yes but not everyone has access to great streaming speeds and huge data plans. I live in London and it's impossible to stream anything on Spotify, let alone Netflix, especially on the morning commute. If you travel a lot, having music, video etc downloaded is pretty much the only way you can use those apps. Also 4k video recording takes a LOT of space on the phone.

Fair enough, I've been lucky on EE where I don't ever find issues with streaming and I travel all over the country. For flights and underground I find the internal space more than enough and for photos / videos, they just go straight to Google Photos.
Does same apply to mate 20 Pro or are there alternative NM cards?

I can play 1080p 60fps videos on Vodafone 4G just fine...

Shooting high-res video or travelling without constant internet access, it would be tough to avoid extra storage.
This is one of the reasons I steer away from the Huawei phones and these cards, too much of a deal-breaker for me when the equivalent micro SD can be had for less than £13
I had never heard of this before. Huawei don't do themselves an favours do they. All we hear these days is negative press about them.

True to an extent. But when I was considering an equivalent S10 plus it was an extra 200-300 more than I could purchase a P30 pro, so a one off cost on a nano memory card which is 25-30 more seems moot.

Sony have been doing it for decades across as many of their product as possible. My PSP and Sony camera both used proprietary memory I think? I assume they just don't have the numbers to pull nonsense like this with their phones and Google do effectively the same by ignoring expansion entirely to force their cloud services.

There's always used cards, I suppose.

A £26 difference in price on a memory card is a deal breaker when purchasing a phone? I'm Scottish and tight but that's even a stretch for me!

A lot of phones do not even have the option of expandable memory these days, so although the nano cards are more expensive at least there is an option to add them if needed.

4K movies and over 80 Hi-Res Cliff Richard albums including 12 different versions of Devil Woman.What about you?

I took a chance on the yaomaisi one on Amazon when it was £26.99.
Had it 5 months now and filled 82gb out of 128 and it's been fine. No stuttering or speed issues.
Does Huawei allow you to use these cards as adoptive storage or is it external only ?

Unless you want to download the movies because the connection might be dodgy i tend to store files locally rather then waste data all depends on person

There's much more to it than price, these Huawei cards max out at 256GB capacity (at which point they are nearly twice as much as a 400GB micro sd card) and they only work with Huawei devices whereas micro SD works with many devices. Given the Huawei cards are so similar to micro SD cards it's irritating they didn't just stick with SD.
Oh man, I see Samsung following suit in the not too distant future

Yep, I'll stick with my Samsung ta
I paid £45-odd for mine CEX sell them for £35 (not sure if in store price differs) but they don't appear in many stores (a bit more available than last time I looked, though).
