The Read speed is good enough. Just slower when writing.

Yes, write speed is very slow. Whenever I rename a file or save, it will lag or sometimes freeze. Disrupting my workflow. Hence, now I only store photo/video & files that I less freq use in the card.

any fast card to recommend?

Are you using the U1 or U3 version? Current Samsung micro SD cards are call Evo Plus (U3) instead of Evo+ (U1).

Good ones cost a bomb to be honest, i.e. those UHS II ones. So it is matter of balancing performance to price.

I see. This is probably one of the fastest SD card without breaking the bank. I have seen those UHS II ones that are asking for double the price if not more.

Check out the below link.

But as mentioned, the prices is not for the faint hearted. And personally, I don't think it is worth paying for it.

For the same price, you can probably only get a UHS I and U1 class SD card from Sandisk. Compared to the U3 Samsung card, it will be slower.

True. But soon my internal 256GB will not be enough.

I think you will need to manage the storage well in the meantime till you decided to change it. I recall it is not easy to replace the SSD in there.

I still stand by my recommendation not to spend too much money on SD card as they generally don't last and perform as well as a proper SSD.

Agreed, will try to manage my data first.

There's no way to upgrade anything in a sp.

cheaper choice will be using a bigger microsd card and a very small usb drive for more storage.

200gb microsd plus a 256gb usb drive so total storage become 700gb
