This 64GB Samsung EVO Plus microSD is a great value that comes with a USB card reader on a lanyard for easy file transfers.

PNY's 128GB card is arguably the best value you'll find for a microSD of this size, but PNY offers plenty of storage options up to 512GB.
200GB for less: SanDisk Ultra 200GB UHS-I
With read speeds up to 100MB/s and write speeds up to 90MB/s, this 200GB card from SanDisk will let you record in HD or 4K to your heart's content.

Go all-in on extra storage: Samsung 512GB EVO Plus

How much storage is enough storage for you?
We've rounded up the best options at every price point and popular storage capacity so that you can find the right one to fit your needs with absolute ease. The best value is the Samsung 32GB Evo Select. Evo Select feels like Samsung's budget line of cards, but that's mainly because it's an Amazon exclusive that's regularly discounted. In terms of performance, you'll get the same great read and write speeds with storage options up to 512 GB.
SanDisk is another trusted storage brand, and they offer what I would call the "Goldilocks" solution with its 200GB Ultra card that sits between the 128GB and 256GB offerings.
However, if you really want to go all out, we'd recommend the 512GB Samsung EVO Plus which is basically the same card as Samsung's Evo Select brand except for it's red, feels more premium. A perfect fit for anyone with massive media collection that you want to be instantly accessible on your phone at any moment.
