how does it compare to the popular samsung card?
I'd like to know this too, is it good for my s10e?
Don't know about Samsung card but here is a comparison & review between a Sandisk Extreme & Lexar 633x cards
I had a 64GB one in a spare phone, dead in 1 year. Still can read out, but can't write. Not sure if I'm the unlucky one, but I will never touch it again.
It seems I'm not alone. Please read the reviews here:
I had two 128 GB Lexar 633x in my dashcam fail, one failed in 6 months the second in a year. So yeh, I won't touch these. My 128GB sandisk ultra in my older car has been going strong for 5 years including time spent in the sun. I had a Samsung card fail in the dashcam too within 3 months. So seems like I only trust Sandisk at this stage for anything that is remotely heated above 50 deg.
As large as these storage….scares me to think what if the card fails in my phone….
All my photos and ……gone…
It's like a memory wipe for past few years
So upload to Google Photos? Storage is free if you choose 'High Quality' over original. The difference in quality is negligible unless your camera is over 16MP or you're a professional photographer.
Or set a reminder to manually back up your photos once a month?
I was under the impression everyone automatically backed up to the cloud these days
Nope, got a 1280gb S10+ with a 64gb SD Card. The only form of backup I do is connecting my phone to my PC via a USB cable and transfer folders back and forth. I only backup things like phone contacts, texts to my Google account, but all other media is physical backups haha
Why? Is that because of lack of trust of cloud services or something else?
Keep in mind that most of what is on your phone is probably already accessible via intelligence agencies if they really wanted.
Generally images are priceless so whilst offline phsyical backups are great, a cloud solution may also compliment what you are already doing.
@khomeini: No not really because of lack of trust for cloud services
I just like having my stuff in full original quality and with no network latency
Also it saves my phone a load of battery when I use no cloud services, so nothing is syncing and updating in the background
@TwentyTwoCarats: Fair enough. Thanks for the reply.
@TwentyTwoCarats: I use the automatic Google Photos upload as my peace of mind and all else has faild backup. I still download the original images to my NAS about once a month. But if the house burns down, I still have my photos, even if they're not the best quality.
Back up photos and videos to a self-hosted NextCloud box - Best of both worlds!
@whirlpool_guy: please elaborate here or in my DMs, i am intrigued
@TwentyTwoCarats: here please…. I'm also interested
thanks but got the info from here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nextcloud
I always backup to 2 locations.
1- google photos
2- use this app to wirelessly sync what I want it to sync to my pc/server
And I have it set by tasker to do this backup every 2 weeks if I'm connected to home Wifi
I never have to worry about backing up
Better than manually connecting cables and looking navigating to folders.
Regardless of brand/size of card you should be backing up anything that is of value
That is why I had two kids.
You're far more likely to loose the phone rather than the card fail. You always need to make backups!!
1TB is now available as of yesterday.
Sandisk 1TB Micro SD Card
That's 2TB in your pocket
And years of lost memories when u lose ur phone.
It's called backing up
I had a few fail, but your content is still accessible. You just can't write to it anymore. I believe it's a fail safe when I was researching to protect your data.
Found some info: https://www.storagereview.com/lexar_announces_512gb_a2_micro...
is lexar reliable compared to other brands
Lexar is Micron's brand for SD cards. Kinda like Crucial.
Not since 2017! The brand is owned and manufactured by a Chinese company.
Thanks for putting so many offers dealbot :)
Had one 256gb from Amazon US years ago. Failed in 12 months with limited usage. Called Lexar and was requested to pay to ship it oversea for exchange. Cant be bothered, so contacted Amazon US and got full refund immediately. Sticking with Sandisk ever since, peace of mind.
Damn, this worries me now
One of my Sandisk failed so I never by Sandisk. But we need to remember that Technology has been changing and these came out in 2018.
checked my account. the one i bought was higher end one with UHS-II, from 2017. As for Sandisk, i always use the Extreme line, not sure about low end ones.
I think anything can fail anytime so backup is a must. I usually prefer Samsung Evo. I also have Toshiba 128gb in one of phones since 3 years without problem. I am thinking of trying this one now.
Isn't these High Per card are designed for Dash cam or devices that copy loop after loop?
but would it be bad in anyway for a phone?
Thanks for sharing this offers. I am just looking for a reliable microSD card for my new DJI OSMO Pocket.
How do these compare to the SanDisk Extremes?
Specs say 70MBs write which seems decent enough for my DSLRs and at a glance looks much cheaper than the SanDisks.
This might help.
Is the upgrade from A1 to A2 worth it? Appears only the 512GB comes in A2 and im tossing up a 400GB SanDisk Ultra.
Always random if things die but I got a Samsung 64gb pro that just died 5 years old…claiming warranty now as you get 10 years. Pretty annoyed as barely used it….lost some photos but most backed up. Was thinking to try other brand.
Don't try to use these in action cameras as they fail pretty easily.
Ive had my 64GB one working fine for a few years in my GoPro.
Since Longsys’ acquisition, Lexar isn’t Micron.
I use these (64gb) in 3x GoPro's for motorsport, and they are all still running strong after 3 years of continuous use. I used SanDisk previously and both myself and a friend would have them fail after about a year of use. Read/write on the Lexar is good.
WRT failures - people (generally) only complain when they fail, so for every failure there are probably a significant portion of people with a good experience who don't post up. If you want to use any card in a phone just back it up to the cloud because old cliché is always true with storage - its not a matter of if it will fail, its when it will fail.
These cards are not made by Micron, as they were 3 years ago.
Are you saying that there is a chance these lexar cards may now be more reliable? Looking at getting a 512GB for my Note 8 but will just go for the more expensive SanDisk if it is more reliable.
Other way around - the Lexar brand was bought by a Chinese company few years ago
I don't have experience with the new Lexar cards under this new Chinese rebrand but the older Lexar cards were well respected. The newer ones arguably more risky as such.
I'd go the SanDisk tbh.
