In 2015 Samsung chose not to use a microSD slot in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy Note 5. The result was millions of upset and frustrated customers running out of storage. This year though, Samsung learned from their mistakes and returned it for all their flagship smartphones. With that in mind, here are some of the best and fastest microSD cards for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge.
Even though the S7 series has been available since March, millions of users are just now buying one, or bought the S7 as a replacement for the canceled Note 7. Once you get yours, add over 200GB of storage in a matter of seconds with a microSD card.
Running out of space on a smartphone is nothing new, which is why Galaxy S8 rumors suggest 64GB will be built right in. That isn’t an option for most Galaxy S7 owners though. As a result you’ll want to grab one of the many SD cards we’ve recommended below.
With tons of different sizes, speeds, brands and more there’s a lot to consider. Here we share our suggestions for some of the best choices for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge owners. Getting a microSD card can be one of the best accessory purchases for your device, but make sure you don’t pay too much.
Using the SIM slot removal tool that comes in the box owners can remove the SIM tray, put a microSD card next to it and slide it back in. Instantly adding 64GB, 128GB or even 256GB of storage in seconds.
Just a year ago 200GB of space in a smartphone was nearly impossible without spending hundreds of dollars. Now it is both easy and cheap. The cost of microSD cards has declined while sizes have increased to huge limits. There are now 256GB microSD cards readily available, and even 64GB options are less than you’ll spend going out to dinner.
It’s worth noting that typical stores are extremely overpriced, so do not buy one there. Carrier stores like Verizon or T-Mobile and even Best Buy are all a no-go. That said, Best Buy lowers the price with deals all the time, and will even price match Amazon if you want to buy one today.
Our recommendation for most average users would be a 64GB card, but power users may want to jump at something even bigger. With that in mind, below is a collection of some of the best microSD cards for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. These offer the best speed, performance and durability for the price.
