Well, I'm think this one will work, unless you don't need that much space, otherwise, I would consider the 8GB, although it's always nice to have extra storage if/when you need it.

Yes it is.

For a few extra bucks you get the 32GB card.

Thanks for the input guys. Are you saying that there is no fixed storage card and that I can buy the 32GB? Would the following suit?

 

32GB MicroSDHC Memory Card Class 10 UHS-I Micro Samsung Chips with SD Adapter

Hi Geologist,

 

I've used an 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB all in the SGS2, then moved the 32GB to my SGS4. Depending on the brand and the class some have issues, most do not. I try to stick to name brand ones when they go on sale as they tend to last longer. I've still bumped into issues once in a while but not often. We've had 8 different Android phones over the last 3 years, only one wasn't a Samsung, and only one or two SD card issues. As we buy local on sale we just return if that brand or model has an issue.

 

I do recall the max for the SGS2 was 32GB but that's sometimes just a current size availability issue rather than a size limitation. Have a look around here for more info and better answers; http://forum.xda-developers.com

 

Regards,

Zen

go for 16GB. It is always good to have some extra space. Always buy good sd card don't go for cheek ones.

Sajilv, have decided that I am going for the 16GB so thank you for your input.

 

Zen Seeker, same message so thank you too for your input. Also, bearing in mind that I am pretty green on this matter, would you, for my sake and the sake of others like me, give me an idea of the 'issues' that I may, or may not, encounter when using SD cards?

Sadly I find class and brand can affect read/write speeds. In some cases even detecting the card can be an issue. But as I said, if you get it at a typical store like Walmart, FutureShop or BestBuy you have 30 days to return regardless of the issue. A small computer or mom-and-pop store you're taking a chance. (This isn't due to cheap or fake cards but due to stock and resale policies.)

 

Just try to format the card and use it. If you see it and it formats without issue it should be fine. SanDisk and  Kingston are what I usually get. A buddy has Kodak but I've never tried it.

 

Hope it helps and best of luck.

Wow, If all else fails and your laptop has a sd card slot, You can use the sd card as a drive in your PC. Maybe even boot Linux from it.
