Best MicroSD Cards for the BlackBerry KEYone

The BlackBerry KEYone is easily the most unique Android phone released in 2017. One of the best features included is expandable storage. With only 32GB of internal storage, you're probably going to want a microSD for storing all the photos and videos you'll shoot with your KEYone.

The KEYone can handle up to 2TB of additional storage — but those are hypothetical numbers at this point. Don't get suckered in by someone offering a 1TB microSD, and always be sure to buy your microSD cards from reputable sites — scammers are out there looking to make a quick buck selling fake microSD cards.

Consider checking out Android Central's breakdown of the best microSD cards for Android, or read on for some recommendations taken straight from the CrackBerry KEYone forums.

Lexar Professional 1000x microSDXC

This card was specifically recommended by VictorRight in the CrackBerry KEYone forums and receives top marks for being one of the fastest cards you'll find. It uses UHS-II speeds for reads and writes, which means you'll see no slowdown using the card with your KEYone.

There are four sizes available — the 64GB is your best value at around $50. You can go BIG with a 256GB card, but you'll also pay $260 — basically a dollar per GB.

Samsung EVO+ microSDXC

Samsung's EVO+ microSD cards are top-quality, as you'd expect from such a trusted brand. These things are rugged enough to withstand pretty much any conditions you throw at them, so even if your phone gets zapped by X-rays, torn apart by magnets, or takes a dip in the pool, your data will remain secure.

You can add 128GB to your KEYone for only $50, which is an absolute steal and a must-buy if you're frustrated with the 32GB of internal storage.

Sandisk Extreme Pro 64GB U3 microSDXC

Sandisk emerged as the clear favorite in a CrackBerry forum thread on microSD cards, so if you're just looking for extra space and don't care too much about extreme read/write speeds, you can be confident that these cards will work with your KEYone.

You'll find options for 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB, with the latter coming in at just over $50.

  • Note For Writer: If you are discussing a MicroSD card like the SanDisk Extreme Pro, then it would be better to have a picture of the product and not a SanDisk Ultra card in the picture 😃 Might confuse people who are not familiar with what products look like.
  • You guys should be linking the current 2017 Samsung evo model. Has much faster read and write speeds that compare better with the others shown
  • The article title give the impression that you need special microSD cards depending on the device.... Interesting since Android devices typically work the same as far as those cards are concerned....
