[Memory Express] ADATA Premier microSDXC UHS-I Class 10, 128GB ($19.99)

Includes the SD adapter.

Not the fastest so don't buy this for high write speed requiring applications.

Good deal if you are picking up at a local store, but not if you have to pay for shipping.

If you need to ship, then canadacomputers have it for $2 more and you can pick it up locally. Bestbuy.ca doesn't have it or else could have price matched for cheaper

I'd be worried this thing would die on me.
Memory Express has always taken care of me with any issues. If it's under manufactures warranty they will handle it for you so you don't have any shipping costs. Usually they even take care of it if its a few days outside of warranty. Of course, this is only valid if you live near an actual store.

Believe Canvas select is a higher-end product.

Good price. Consider getting one for my phone. But I need a high speed one for my Samsung Gear 360. Recommendations?

The worry is certainly warranted, and that's the case with any SD card for that matter. However, for some reason, this worry disappears for you when buying garbagy QLC SSDs? :lol:

SanDisk Ultra and Kingston Canvas "Select"* are almost the same tier. The ADATA will almost certainly outperform both of these but the problem is the reliability is more iffy. I think the Ultras are a little bit faster than the Select nonsense too.

*I love how they call it "Select", as if selecting the worst of their cards is something good lol. Seriously Canvas "Select" is their lowest-end apart from going into their Class 4 cards which are basically just an economy option for low-end devices (these only go up to 32GB).

This card (Adata) is okay but just keep in mind if it fails it shouldn't surprise you. For a more premium card stick with Canvas React or SanDisk Extreme lines or better. They obv. won't be as cheap though and again any SD card can give up the ghost at any time--they're not exactly the most reliable storage medium and never have been.

Had a smaller 64GB version of the ADATA card in my Dash Cam just for testing and it has been years since and still recording without issue so I got this one to replace the old.

To me, ADATA has been great and would recommend.

It's fine for a phone but I'd probably not use it as adoptable or "internal" storage on Android. This mode makes it as if your SD card's storage expands the built-in storage on your phone but using this mode really demands an SD card that is:
-Fast
-Reliable

A slow* SD in this mode can cause your phone to run too slow; an unreliable SD in this mode can cause you a lot of headaches if (when?) the card fails. So for just regular SD card mode, I'd say it's fine. For adoptable storage, buy something higher-end.

*This card is not super slow or anything but at 25MB/s write it's not exactly fast either; and again, reliability is somewhat iffy.

Welp just bought it and stuck it in my phone. See how long it lasts. For $20 I cant go wrong. I dont plan on using it for adoptable storage. It's a work phone so lll be using it for photos while I'm out on service.

As said, if you're using it as regular SD storage on an Android phone, you should be fine. Internal/adoptable is where you could run into issues both for speed and if the card fails.
