    Hello,
    I have been running into problems with my SanDisk Pixtor Micro SD card. It seems to cause my phone to crash and even reformatting it on the computer two weeks ago did not help.
    Does anyone have an SD card they have used for 1.5 years or more with no problems?
    I have placed everything on the SD card such as music and W10 apps when possible so I'd like a reliable SD card that can handle reading and writing on a daily basis.
    Thank you for the advice.

    I'm not. I've been running the Production OS since Day 1.

    I have had a SanDisk 32gb card in my 950xl since day one. Occasionally took it out and put it in my X3. No issues.

    This is a good question. I've always used SanDisk but have been looking at some PNY cards as of late.

    Are you sure about the SD card being responsible for the behaviour of your phone? I also had crashes and thought they might be caused by the (Sandisk^^) card. Formatting and even exchanging it for another model did not solve the problem.
    But let's assume, your SD card causes the problems, you will quite possibly have no problem with another card of the same manufacturer and model.

    I don't use any external SD Card. Because I have 16GB memory card set already onto my device.

    Been using a PNY 180gb that used to be on my Lumia 830, gotta say it's been working almost flawlessly, there a few occasions where it'll give me a notice saying I shouldn't unmount my SD card while the phone is on, but after a quick reset it fixes it self, haven't had much trouble with it. The one that gave me some trouble was the original SanDisk 200gb that I specifically bought for my 950XL after a while it stopped working, and can't be read by any of my laptops or other phones.
