    I currently have a 64gb card, and am planning to get a 128gb card.

    The thing is, on the BBmobile site, they advertise up 256gb. Other places say 2TB. I don't own any cards that big, so I can't test it. Any ideas?

    Well since the biggest SD card you can buy now is only 200gb you shouldn't have to worry about the 2tb

    My bad... I didn't know SanDisk came out with a 400GB SD card last August. Seems the price is $249.99. WOW

    No problem. I'm still wondering though, does the Motion accept up to 256gb, or 2TB? I find it odd that the official Web page says different than everyone else.

    Motion will take up to 2TB but as noted, they don't exist yet. So whatever.

    So you're saying the box of 2TB SD cards for $99 on Alibaba is probably misrepresented counterfeit merchandise? No. It can't be..

    512GB are coming - https://www.businesswire.com/news/ho...ity-microSD™

    LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Europe-wide memory specialist Integral Memory plc has beaten all competitors and answered a growing need for increased capacity on mobile devices. Their new 512GB microSDXC™ V10, UHS-I U1 card provides all compatible Android™ smartphones and tablets with a massive memory boost, enabling users to create, store and share more photos and videos and enjoy app and music downloads – without the worry of running out of storage space.

    The world's first 512GB microSDXC memory card from @integralmemory delivers maximum storage for mobile consumers


    The card meets the Video Speed Class 10 (V10) standard, ensuring fast data transfer and making the capture of Full HD video on devices including digital cameras, action cams, drones and camcorders quicker and more reliable. Essentially, users can capture more stills and footage thanks to the huge 512GB capacity.


    “Consumers have been clear in their call for increased storage, as mobile devices have become essential to many in everyday life,” commented James Danton, marketing manager, Integral Memory. “The need to provide extended memory for smartphones, tablets and a growing range of other mobile devices such as action cams and drones has been answered. As a company, we are very proud to be the first to achieve the 512GB capacity milestone in microSDXC, worldwide”.


    Developments in cloud-based storage solutions have raised questions about the future role of memory cards, yet consumer lifestyles have embraced the microSD memory card format more than ever. The popularity of photo and video based apps such as Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, Netflix and other downloadable video services are driving the demand for higher storage capacity on mobiles. The ability for users to self-upgrade in seconds through their microSD slot, rather than bearing the expense of a new phone or tablet is desirable.


    Additionally, whilst mobile devices lead the demand for increased storage, according to Integral, the expansion in new product categories including action-cams, drones, home security cameras and dash cams has triggered a surge in demand.


    As a successful British flash storage specialist with more than 28 years of experience, Integral Memory has built a reputation for quality and customer focus with keen prices. The new 512GB microSDXC card has been performance tested with a range of smartphones and delivers up to 80MB/s transfer speed. The card has a V10, UHS-I Class 1 specification and is covered by Integral’s trusted 5-year warranty.

    True... but anything larger than 256gb matters because it's not what BBmobile says.

    But if it does work past 256gb, that's great!

    Blackberry's websites are very confusing. The Canada one (https://blackberrymobile.com/ca/specifications/motion/) says "up to 256gb", while the "EMEA" one (https://blackberrymobile.com/emea/sp...ations/motion/) says "up to 2tb". I just ordered a 400gb SanDisk Ultra SD card, so will give it a try! Fingers crossed!

    what would you put on a 200+ gb card that's in a phone?
    it's the storage that's unsafe. you lose your phone, you lose your stored photos,etc.

    As a father of young kids, that spaces gets used by photos and videos very fast.

    A little bit ago, I bought a 128 GB SanDisk Extreme A2. I upgraded from a 128 GB Ultra because I felt it was too slow.

    I'm currently at 90% of my storage.

    I do however have One Drive, and sync all my photos to my desktop this way. So I can delete files if I want to save space. I just prefer to keep them on my phone, because I love the convenience of pulling out photos whenever the situation calls for it. I have work photos, or trip photos, or old photos too.

    My wife and I made a stupid mistake with her iPhone. She damaged it, and we needed a replacement right away. She got the same phone again, but with 32gb of space instead of 64gb. Obviously the space leftover for photos is miniscule after everything else is on, so now we have to delete photos and videos off her phone every couple months... terrible idea in hindsight.

    200GB or 2GB, whatever the size, back it up somewhere.

    I have about 186 GB of music on my SD card but that's still backed up in triplicate.

    You can back up the photos, but for me, the problem is the SD card with your personal photos falling into another person's hands.
    I lost my DTEK 50 and the SD card. I didn't have a lot of stuff on it at the time, but all the same, I didn't like the feeling of someone being able to browse photos of my family.
    Something to take into account.
