What's the best microSD card to use with the Samsung Note 7?

After abandoning expandable storage for 2015's flagship releases, Samsung has righted the ship in 2016 by reintroducing of microSD slots on both the Galaxy S7/S7 edge and Galaxy Note 7.

If the 64GB of internal storage on the Note 7 just ain't going to cut it, you'll want to invest in a quality microSD card and add up to 200GB of additional storage. That means you'll have more space for all your music, 4K videos, photos, and animated gifs, and you can save the phone's internal memory for your favorite apps and games.
