Flash memory for smartphones and tablets
The use of smartphones and tablets has grown the past few years, as well as the functions that these devices offer. To name one example, it was previously unthinkable that you could record 1080p Full HD videos with a small device such as a smartphone. More memory is increasingly required in order to save the high quality video files. Smartphones and tablets come with increasingly larger memory capacities; nevertheless, after a while the internal memory appears to be insufficient. A series of photos, videos, music and data files all require more Gigabytes of memory.

microSDHC card capacities and speeds
Up to 4GB, it is a microSD memory card, anything above that is a microSDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card. SanDisk Extreme Pro cards are available in 8GB and 16GB. Not only are the capacity (and price) important, but also the speed of a memory card - the writing speed as well as the reading speed - plays an essential role. SanDisk’s Extreme Pro microSDHC UHS-I memory card can achieve writing speeds up to 90MB per second, and reading speeds up to 95 MB per seconds. This is exceptional performance!
