    Hello everyone, I'm not new here but I can't find my previous account... but anyway. I have a Lumia 650 and I'm about to order a new micro SD card so I was wondering if the UHS standard was still not supported for the new Lumia 650 just like the 640.

    This is what I found after doing a quick research:

    UHS (Ultra High Speed bus) standard is not supported so you will not get 30 or 48 MB/s because the max speed of the HIgh Speed bus in your phone is 25 MB/s.

    SD cards are so much cheaper than 2 years ago, the prices dropped a lot, so is it even worth it getting a card like the Samsung EVO Plus with a write speed of 90 MB/s and read speed of 95 MB/s for the L650?

    I tried to look up some reviews but couldn't find anything relevant.

    The spec sheet for Snapdragon 212 does state UHS-I support.

    I recently got my hands on a similar device, the Moly W5 (built for W10M, with a SD 210 - the only difference between 210 and 212 being clock speed). I inserted a 32GB Samsung SDHC UHS-I card and used the SD Card R/W Test App.

    It wrote a 32MB file with a write speed of 10.45 MB/s and read it at 43.65 MB/s. I believe UHS-I speeds are the limit.

    the card would be useful if you are thinking of upgrading your phone in the future. But for your phone, it would be too much - like inserting a 4G SIM card in a feature phone that can only do 2G
