Recently Samsung announced a new Micro SD memory card named Evo plus 256GB. As its name implies, this Micro SD card has a whopping capacity of 256GB and it allows users to store up to 12 hours of 4K video or 33 hours of full HD recordings. As to the technical details, the newly released card is made from Samsung’s V-NAND flash memory, which has a maximum read speed of 95MB/s, and the card adheres to the UHS-1, Class 10 U3 speed class. As to the pricing and availability, the 265GB Evo Plus Micro SD card will starts to ship in June and it sells at $249.99, which equals approximately $1 per GB plus a 10 year warranty.
When the entire world is seemingly on a trend of ditching the expandable memory on smart phones and tablets, why Samsung takes the risk to go against it? Maybe Samsung believes that bringing back the Micro SD card option back can help promote its Galaxy phones? Plus, the fact that the last year’s Galaxy S6 does not offer the Micro SD slot option but now available on Galaxy S7, people have enough reason to believe in the theory.
The Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge came out in February, and each has two onboard storage options of 32GB and 64GB, but both bring back the option of Micro SD card slot, which lets users add extra storage with up to 200GB. Now three months later, Samsung rolled out this 256GB card, the intention is more than obvious. They believe by doing this, they can grab more market share, maybe even steal some from its No. 1 rival Apple. Well, to many smart phone users, this can really steal the thunder, especially to those movie lovers who want to watch movies everywhere and anytime possible.
Think about it, if you can carry the entire 10 seasons of Friends or Smallville on your smart phone, how fabulous could that be? To make this happen, an iPhone of 64GB edition might not be enough, but the situation becomes different if you own an Android phone with the option of Micro SD card slot. You just need to convert your DVD collections of Friends, Smallville, or the most recent TV Shows from DC Comics, like the Arrow, the Flash, the Supergirl, and the Legends of Tomorrow, or whatever it could be.
However, to get those TV Shows you love from DVDs into your smart phone, a Micro SD card is not enough; you will also need a DVD ripper software, which can help you convert all your DVD collections into correct video format, normally MP4 would be OK, so that you can watch them on your trips whenever you want. And it is not hard to find a software application cable of doing that, just search the internet and you will see a sea of options. But, to help killing your pains on making choices on which one to go, I recommend you the very DVD converter software I’ve using for the last 5 years and will be sure to continue using in the years to come, which has all the bells and whistles to convert any DVD into correct video formats for playing back on all the main stream mobile devices like smart phones, tablets, game consoles and PDAs etc.
