Which SD card should i buy for my Xperia Z3?

Hey!

I just bought a Sony Xperia Z3, and need to buy an sd card for it. Im considering either the Samsung evo or the samsung evo plus. The Samsung evo got 48MB/S read speed and 48MB/S write speed. The Samsung evo plus got 80MB/S write speed and 20MB/S read speed.


Which one should i get? Are there any limitations as far as how fast an sd card can work on a phone? What is most important, reading or writing speed? Are any of the cards overkill in one area or underwhelming in another?

They are available for about the same price and i'm planning to buy a 128GB card.

I'll appreciate any helpful information you guys can give me.

Thanks.

I would suggest a Sony or Sandisk microSD. And UHS I is more than enough for a smartphone.

if they are the same price or almost the same price go with the fastest writting/reading SD card.

I believe he is referring to either of the two manufacturers supplied by Alexdon. 

 

They are both really great SD card for use with Android devices.
