Memory Cards on MyTrendyPhone – Find Everything You Need

Imagine this – just as you are about to take another picture of a beautiful tropical beach, or your child's birthday, a warning appears on your phone or camera's screen: not enough storage space! Luckily, this can be easily avoided if you add a memory card to it!

Nowadays, memory cards are used for a number of devices: mobile phones, digital cameras, video cameras, MP3 players, PDAs, etc. On MyTrendyPhone, you will find a wide range of memory cards, in different price ranges, so all you have to do is choose the right type of a memory card, place it in your phone or another gadget, and expand its built-in storage. Space saved!


What Types of Memory Cards Exist?

There are different types of memory cards out there, but the ones you are most likely familiar with are SD cards.

SD cards (short for Secure Digital) are designed to securely store your data, and are probably the most common ones among users worldwide. They can be used in cameras and smartphones, and some computers, laptops, and TVs also have pre-installed the SD drives. SD cards are available in three different sizes:

1. Standard SD - the size of a post stamp
2. MicroSD - a type of SD cards, only smaller, usually used for mobile phones and similar devices.
3. MiniSD – even smaller that microSD cards, also used for mobile phones. There are two types of miniSD cards: Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) and Secure Digital Extended Capacity (SDXC). SDHC brought storage options up to 32GB, while the SDXC family supports cards up to 2TB.

Bear in mind that not all devices can use high-capacity SD cards, so before purchasing one, check whether it is compatible with the memory card of your choice.


Memory Cards: Speed and Capacity Options

You have probably seen websites talking about read and write speeds of memory cards, and you might know what these are, but we will go over it once more just in case.

Read speed – how fast data can be retrieved from a memory card. For example, a faster read speed will transfer pictures to your computer faster (however, this also depends on how your SD card is connected to your computer, and your hard drive's performance).

Write speed – how fast images can be stored on a card, which is important when shooting multiple images at the same time, recording HD videos, or using high-resolution cameras that can take extremely large photos.

As for capacity, you should choose a card that responds to your wishes and needs. MyTrendyPhone has a large selection of memory cards that can expand your device's storage from 2GB up to 256GB. It all depends on how much photos, music, and other files you are planning to save and keep on your phone, camera, etc.


MyTrendyPhone Also Offers Memory Card Adapters and Readers

Card readers and adapters can come in handy when you need and want to transfer data without using a USB cable.

How do adapters work? You insert your memory card into the adapter, and then put the adapter into your laptop's memory card port, because you cannot insert the memory card directly into your laptop.

What about readers? A number of computers and printers have built-in memory card readers, but if you use more than one type of memory card on a regular basis, it is probably worth investing into a multi card reader that accepts multiple types and styles of memory cards.
