With the proliferation of mobile devices, storage is becoming more important, and particularly in a small form factor. Phones, tablets, cameras of various sorts – they typically rely on external storage media for anything substantial, whether photos, movies, music, and so on. Media is consumable, and it seems we can’t get enough.
We’re all familiar with SD card, and as devices have gotten smaller, Micro SD cards are certainly becoming the norm. We want smaller, but we also want larger capacity. 32GB seems the minimum these days, particularly if you have any notions of bringing kids on long car rides and want to keep them busy watching movies (trust me, I know).
Samsung is a mobile device behemoth of a company, needing no introduction. Not unlike Samsung’s vaunted SSD drives, the new Micro SD cards sport the EVO+ and PRO+ monikers, targeting different consumers who have varying speed needs, and budgets to match. It appears Samsung has something for everyone in the small form factor media storage market.
Today we’re looking at the Samsung PRO+ 64GB and EVO+ 32GB Micro SD cards. They promise very different speeds for consumers and professionals alike, and we’ll discuss those differences as we take a closer look at what Samsung has to offer.
