As smartphones and tablets becomes more and more powerful, it’s only logical for storage solution providers to up their game a notch to give mobile users a snappy memory card. That’s exactly what SanDisk did with the release of Extreme microSDHC/microSDXC UHS-I card.
The new SanDisk Extreme sits above the firm’s Ultra lineup which, for the longest time, has been their franchise centerpiece in the micro-SD division. Its Read Speed is almost three times faster than what Ultra cards can offer and it’s roughly the same case for the Write Speed.
Whether you’re recording/watching 1080p videos or transferring huge files, the increase in performance that Extreme micro-SD cards have to offer can significantly cut down the wait time and/or eliminate lags during playback.
Apart from the increase in speed, these cards also possess resistance from a handful of elements (up to some extent of course) including water, shock/vibration, X-RAY and Magnet.
