    Hi guys,
    I am planning to get a microSD card for Nokia Lumia 72. I am interested with Samsung micro SD card 32GB, UHS-I class 10.
    From what I read it looks like a fast sd card. Just wondering is this compatible with Nokia Lumia 720?
    Or if any of you any suggestion which brand / type / class should I get for Lumia 720.
    Thank you

    Is there any lag or slow when you read the files (e.g photos, songs) from micro sd card?

    Buy the extreme version.
    I don't have any kind of lag or delays as some people claimed before.
    Extreme version have higher write/read speeds.
    Worth what u'll pay extra.
    Current WP: Lumia 930
    Current WT: Microsoft Surface 2 w/ Touch Cover 2

    No lags no slowness of any kind, remember mine is a Class 10 which makes a huge difference compared to lower classes.
    Also opt for branded cards, avoid buying from ebay as there are lot of flaky ones out there.
    Doesn't matter what brand you buy, has to be class 10 (higher read/write speed)

    I'm using a 32GB SanDisk Class 10 card...and the lag when browsing Xbox Music (especially clicking on an Artist or Album) is noticeable....as in 2 or 3 seconds after clicking. I've also tested a 64GB Kingston Class 10, and a 2GB Toshiba Class 4.

    Is this the same for everyone, or are there better cards that take care of this? The lag is ridiculous.

    There two types of class 10..SDHC and SDXC(extreme) the later has faster read/write speed. I have a 32G SDHC Class 10 from Patriot, I am also encountering a delay. When I go to songs/song list and click on a specific song there is a delay of 2 seconds before screen move to now playing screen.

    Did you inserted it correctly?..the device should detect it once inserted. Haven't you tested it before purchasing? Format must be FAT32

    If you have 4000+ songs the list would take 2-3-4-5 sec. Time varies a bit.

    The card you linked to would be fine. AFAIK as long as the card is SDHC, it will work. Most people recommend Class 4 or above.

    I just bought a Sandisk Ultra 32GB SDHC UHS-1 class 10 card, from my experience it's quite slow while browsing its contents from pc, either from Windows Explorer or from Windows Phone App in Windows 8. The app also lists duplicate files while actually there's only one file of each kind. The number of duplicates increased after I removed (both savely and while the phone is off) and reinserted the micro SD card. It also happens to my phone's Photos hub, it's now very messy.

    Meanwhile, when I inserted the card to my laptop's reader, it reads and writes really faster, 30MB/s read 10MB/s write just like what they stated. So I assume it's the Lumia 720's card reader that is not fast enough. Ultra is great enough for general use, no need to go extreme.

    btw, according to microSD Cards from SanDisk for Business and Consumer SDXC has the same speed, I think XC stands for Xtreme Capacity.

    I can't comment on the speed issues, but the duplicate song and photo listings are well known WP8 issues and have nothing to do with the brand or class of the SD card. Search the forums for 'duplicate song' or 'duplicate photo' and you'll find a few threads discussing the issue.

    most any SD card that isn't sketchy should work fine.

    The title should be about the Micro SD brand recommendation and not "compatibility" because any Micro SD card brand should work even the cheap one from china that you can buy for only $5 or less because I used such media for a couple of months and I don't get any lags or so.

    Right now I am using SanDisk microSDHC Class 4

    Just in 72hrs Lumia 720 is dead !!
    I plugged in the charger yesterday and its boom. There were atleast 5 people at Nokia care for similar or different issuses with Lumia 720.
    However they refused to replace the device after a lot of argument. Then I went to the shop from where I bought it as he promised me to replace it with in 5 days.
    Now, waiting for the new device. As it comes I am going to sell it to the shop owner or in OLx.
    I bought this phone with a lot of expections from NOKIA and TRUST for quality. I am DONE !! They don't deserve it.

    Good bye MS and NOKIA

    Whichever one you want. They will all work with the Lumia 720.

    I'm using the Samsung 32GB uhs-I card too. But I would suggest just buying the cheapest one.

    One thing though, the Lumia 720 has a bug thats partially solved in GDR2 but not completely; the first picture you take using your camera has lag when any sort of SD card is inserted (fast or slow, doesn't matter). Any pics after that will be fine, until you close the camera app again.
