Of course it will survive. Why would Samsung do a promo video about their product's failure?

samsung microsd cards cost a slight premium over others

64gb should cost around 90+ (class 10)

comparing with sandisk for class 10

it is $1 for 1 gb. So 64gb is around $61.


Samsung class 10 however 32gb=$34 always a slightly higher.


Own a few samsung class 10. No problems so far.

This one is a new series from Samsung. EVO(orange one) received a lot of good reviews everywhere.

just checked all my samsung class 10 are Pro range

googled i found some info on Evo range

As far as its durability, there are no real surprises here. Samsung states that the cards are water, temperature, magnetic and x-ray proof with the ability to survive up to 24 hours in seawater, survive in temperatures from -25° to 85° Celsius, protect user data from damage caused by airport X-ray machines and resist up to 13 times the magnetic force of home theater speakers.




choon bo? water proof lol

can use in Samsung range of hp liao like the S5 which is IP67 classification ie dust and water resistant.

link for Evo review is here
