This is fast enough for new Android phones to use as 'internal memory'.
Good product, great price.
Heat.

heat from me to

Have a look tomorrow could do with two.

actually thats about right as you can get a 128GB for about £24.99

32GB x4 = 128GB
£6 x 4 = £24

Seems like a great price for instore

A few in Wrexham.

If by 'internal memory' you mean adopted storage, it's not even remotely close to being fast enough to be used for that purpose without seeing a significant performance drop. It's significantly slower than the phone's onboard eMMC memory and with Android encrypting it, it's even slower still.

Heat from me what a great price. I need to keep my eyes open more often when I'm in Sainburys xx

whenever I go for deals like this they're always sold out

Got the last one in Mansfield. Thanks OP

I'm going to respectfully disagree, but each to his or her own opinion.
By "not even remotely close" i am not sure how you qualify that.
I'd agree that this card will be slower than the onboard memory, but that isnt the purpose of this.
Android will tell the user if the card is too slow or not, and this one (80MB/s) will be fine.
Whilst there are further technical details not specified here that will make a difference (notably IOPS), one person's "fast enough" is another persons "too slow to be worth it".
Same story with graphics cards, people say that one "cannot" play games with a Geforce 1050 - certainly not true either.

For me, and for many people, this SD card is great for adopted storage. However, if you want to give specific / technical examples where it wouldnt be useful, please go ahead - the more information the better

​You've clearly never used this card.

I own one of these. Have tried it extensively for different purposes.

It dog slow and I would never use it as adopted storage.

Good deal for £6. Problem is finding a store that has stock.

Hi, what class of card is good enough for a mobile. I've bought a new phone for the missus and would like to get a card that would keep up with the phone. Thanks

why do people moan about the speed if you are using it in your phone. do you really think your phone is capable of writing to the internal memory (not the SD) at 80MB/sec ? No. Do you think a 3-5MB JPEG image needs to be written at 80MB/sec ? No. Do you think you need more than 5MB/sec to watch a movie? no. Do you need more than 1-2MB/sec to listen to music? no.

The ONLY thing you need that massive speed for is to copy files to or from the card via a card reader. The phone won't care.. if it's class 10 or above, it's perfectly fine. I tried to copy 6GB from my Samsung S6 to my computer guess how long it took.... 2 hours !!!! and that's internal memory, not an external (since the S6 didn't have a memory slot anyway)

You can even write 4K movies from the camera to the card at this speed.

It's like ooh I want 10Gigabit ethernet at home... do you have 10Gbit switches? do you have a disk drive capable of writing at 1250MB/sec ? probably not.

Depends on how much you're going to use it for video recording. Generally speaking, class 4 is the minimum. But since the prices for class 10 cards are so good, you might as well go for those to improve transfer speeds to your computer.

If you're planning to do 4K recording though, I've seen it said that you'll need at least a class 10 card.

​Class 4 is waaaaaay tpo slow. Even with video playback you end up with video/sound syncing problems.

The fastest you can afford. As an absolute minimum, a modern ie 2015-2016 Class 10 (they often revise them each year even ones with the same model names). Even Class 10 cards are considered entry level these days.

2 hours? ROTFL!! X)

Your phone, your computer and/or connection are clearly broken. Either that or you're making it up.

I've just copied 21 files totalling 6.26GB from my phone's eMMC storage to my laptop and it took 4.5 minutes. It was a cheap £100 phone as well!

You don't have to be a rocket scientist or even a GCSE maths student to work out that at a read speed of ~89MB/s, transferring 6GB worth of files is never going to take anything remotely close to your claimed TWO HOURS! X)

(The phone's eMMC is the yellow icon BTW - just in case you get confused The red icon is a slow ass Class 6 Sandisk MicroSD card for comparison.)
