Samsung vs Sandisk

Hello!

I am here in a predicament about the micro sd card for my phone.

I can either get a 200gb sandisk ultra card(30€ on amazon.de btw, hella deal), or a 128gb samsung evo plus for same price.

Now the majority of my sd cards are samsung, because they have very good support and specs. When a card died they sent me a new one right away.

https://www.amazon.de/Samsung-Micro-128GB-Speicherkarte-Adapter/dp/B06XFHQGB9/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1546531978&sr=8-2&keywords=samsung+micro+sd

(not gonna buy from amazon, but the price is pretty much the same)

 

But that sandisk is looking juicy, with it's A1 rating and all that storage, and all the other specs seem to be the same.

 

Is it worth risking with a lesser brand for the extra 72gb of sweet storage? How bad is the Sandisk support for that card to be so cheap?

I only see your reply if you @ me.

SanDisk is actually quite decent, they were one of the few players on the SSD space that also manufactured their own NAND and didn't outsource... their infrastructure for storage solutions was so big that Western Digital bought their assets and brand on a bigger deal than when Seagate bought the entire Samsung HDD division.

 

So you can go with it, you're gaining more space without really losing "quality" here, the Ultra is an on-pair product.

My sister has my 3? year old 16GB Ultra and it's been fine all this time. In my experience SanDisk SD cards tend to be pretty bulletproof. Hell I have a 7 or so year old 8GB SD card where the casing has failed long before the actual storage bits.

@flibberdipper @Princess Cadence But how is the support thought? If the card fails will they send a new one.

It seems both samsung and sandisk have a 10 year warranty, so atleast that is okay.

Well I haven't hard a card fail (like I said) so uh... I obviously won't have any experience with that...

I never had any of my SanDisk products fail on me, I got SD Cards, SSDs, Pen Drives all from them and kinda hilariously as @flibberdipper said I am yet to know how it's their support like lol
