Wow huge storage. I've bought SanDisk Ultra 128GB version and it is more than enough for me.

How many GB are real , the 128 card, has 120 , 244 would be the final value ???128 GB is 128 GB, like this 256GB is on 256 GB.
However Windows shows GiB as GB, so 128 GB shows up as 119 GiB, and 256 GB would be 238 GiB.
It's not because you won't get your storage, it's Windows that doesn't know the difference on GB and GiB.

ashyjay92, 29 Jun 2016i would not want to store 256gb on an SD card, i even find 64gb a bit too much to stomach losing.me , and I would even buy Microdia Xtra Elite 512gb if it wasn't too expensive , but $1000 is just way too much ....

Yousef Al Salmi, 29 Jun 2016Too expensiveThe price should come down quite quickly, they always have before.
q8peace, 29 Jun 2016god wow unbelievable dont you know its un secure and its slow / ufs 2.0 smokes sd card It's fast enough for the purpose people want SD cards for. They're using them for storage of photos, videos and music. All of this is sequential read/write data. It's not as intensive as something like booting your phone or loading apps (more random data). Plus the upgrade in storage is typically cheaper than buying a more expensive phone model. Oh, and Android has supported encryption of SD cards for a while now, soo...
roll no 21, 29 Jun 2016I purchased a 128GB card from eBay USA for 24$ should be less for 256GBThere's less competition in the 256GB capacity, though.
q8peace, 29 Jun 2016god wow unbelievable dont you know its un secure and its slow / ufs 2.0 smokes sd card May be true, I'm not here to argue, but drop your phone hard enough or get it wet on the inside and your UFS 2.0 is history. Stop approaching that isheep mentality. Even if you destroy your phone, you can still remove the SD Card and all your data is safe.
For example a few days ago there was a major power blackout and did not have any Internet. But becose I always save the apks that I want on my SD Card, I had plenty of apps and games to make the time fly. Cloud is s..t without Internet.
So in the end, SD cards still rock. Not everything old is bad and there's always room for improvement.
Buying a smartphone without SD card slot is a brainless idea for non-technical people. Even Sammy realized the importance of SD cards.
Yousef Al Salmi, 29 Jun 2016Too expensiveWait like 1 or 2 years and it'll be between £20-40 (not sure about other currencies but should be similar) which i think is a descent price. Storages are going up nowadays, so these only worth the price if it's really, really needed for anyone.
32-64-128GB should be more than enough nowadays.
*I'm one of those who are having 64GB, and i'll probably run out of storage in a year. I don't trust cloud companies (privacy issues) to upload my photos and private videos.
PS: I want to have photos on my phone and not on pc, so i could any time use them without the need of internet or pc.
PS: The higher the class, the faster the speed rate just in case someone didn't know
Here's some info if anyone would like to learn more:

B3MMi, 29 Jun 2016Class 10 doesn't equal very fast. 10MBs/s isn't that fast tbh.Yes, what you want is a Class 10 U3 capable card. That is the difference in the Ultra vs Extreme lines.
