Snag it while you can: Amazon is selling the new 128GB SanDisk MicroSDXC Card for only $119! The 128GB micro-beast was just announced at MWC 2014 and initially thought to cost up to $200.

But wait, now (especially before buying) everyone is wondering: is your phone or tablet even compatible with SanDisk’s new 128GB MicroSD card?

Will a SanDisk 128GB MicroSDXC card work in your phone or tablet?

Officially, SanDisk has only announced support for the Samsung Galaxy S5. But technically, SanDisk’s 128GB card should work in any device that supports the MicroSDXC standard (buy/use at own risk). We went through the painstaking effort of documenting every single device that SanDisk claims is compatible with the 128GB card.

We’ve devices from the most popular manufacturers above but check out the full list at Android Forums.

While we’ve done the research and these compatibilities are listed by SanDisk themselves – feel free to check SanDisk’s tool yourself – you may want to proceed with caution if that $119 could be better used this month. Again, they should probably work but the emphasis on probably: we take no responsibility if they don’t.

For specific questions, find your phone on Android Forums and ask our friendly community your Android-related question!

Tiny Card, Epic Storage

I’m sure we’ll hear plenty of complaints – “$120 to $200? I might as well just buy a PS4 with 500GB and carry that around!” – but consider the actual size of SanDisk’s creation and just agree to be amazed. Compare it to storage products and capacities of yesteryear and complain not again: for it wasn’t long ago that Tech OG’s were retrieving storage – both input/output – uphill both ways in the snow.

One of my key questions: if SanDisk can make a 128GB memory card the size of my pinky thumbnail, why can’t phone manufacturer’s build 200GB+ into the actual hardware itself? Make the damn thing a little thicker and give us outrageous memory and worthwhile battery life! And hey, Google, if we’re paying $1,500 for Google Glass do you think you could superglue one of these things on the side somewhere?

The SanDisk Android App

We’ve also heard a fair share of negativity regarding the ease of access for memory cards on Android, specifically in the case of how Kit Kat handles them. I’ve yet to try it but I’ve heard great things about the SanDisk Memory Zone App for Android whose entire purpose is to facilitate an awesome experience. We’ll definitely be giving it a try – and so should you – before passing judgement, even if it’s on a much smaller and more affordable card to start.

Would you enjoy 128GB of extra storage?

There’s a lot you can stuff onto a 128GB MicroSD card including 16 hours of Full HD video and more music than a hoard of groupies could listen to in a year. There’s also a lot to discuss in the comments, so have at it!
