Best micro SD card for Xperia XZ1

Hello, fellow Sony fans!

 

Can anyone recommend a really good micro sd card for the Sony Xperia XZ1 so that I can record 4K video without the phone telling me to save to the internal? Thanks!

Hi @LTEstyles,

 

You will want to find an SD card that is labeled with "SDXC" as this will have a high enough transfer rate to support 4K.

Something like this: https://www.sony.com/electronics/micro-sd-memory-cards/sr-uza-series

I use Samsung sd card pro (the black one), 64GB.

It's not cheap but worth it.

Re: Best micro SD card for Xperia XZ1

Thanks to all for your input. I had no idea about choosing the card not only for correct physical size but the best format re. speed and 4k/8k capability.
