Samsung’s new Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ offer support for microSD cards so owners can increase the storage on their phone. While 64GB of storage built-in may be enough for some, others will want extra space for music, movies, video or photos. With that in mind these are some of the best microSD cards for the Galaxy S8.
On March 29th Samsung officially announced the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. With the release date quickly approaching potential buyers will need accessories. From cases, screen protectors to microSD cards for storage expansion.
Many Galaxy S6 or S7 owners were frustrated when they ran out of space, but that isn’t a problem for the Galaxy S8. We now have twice as much storage, and the option to add over 300GB in total. If that interests you we have a few recommendations below.
Add as many movies, apps or games as you’d like to your phone. Then fill it with photos from the stunning 12MP camera or record 4K video for playback on the new 5.8 or 6.2-inch Quad-HD Infinity displays. That’s all possible simply by adding a microSD card for additional storage.
With tons of different sizes, speeds, brands and more there’s a lot to consider. An SD card is one of the best accessories one can buy, but make sure you don’t pay too much. Here we’ll share some good options for speed and performance. Then offer up ones with the best price or highest storage limits.
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 another 64GB, 128GB or even 256GB of storage in seconds.
It’s worth noting that most retail stores are extremely overpriced, so do not buy one there. Whether it’s Verizon or AT&T, or retailers like Best Buy, most charge too much. Instead get a cheaper microSD from our roundup below. Keep in mind that Best Buy will often price-match retailers, for those that can’t wait for online orders.
Our recommendation for most owners would be a 64GB card, but power users may want even more storage. Without further delay, below are the best microSD cards for the Galaxy S8 or Galaxy S8 Plus.
