    I complained about pubg being so laggy on my phones. I couldn't understand why it was so slow. I discovered that it was totally fixed when I switched my old class 4 SD for a new class 10. I am amazed by the difference the class 10 card makes. I didn't think about my newer phones all have had the ability to format sd for internal. My devices honestly run like 10 times faster and better now

    Linus! Please make a video about Expresscards!!! Tell them how they come in 34mm and 54mm sizes and that they are made for several peripherals such as External Graphics Cards, USB 2.0/3.0, up to SDXC, and even a MOGO MEDIA MOUSE!!! Please do it!

    When I was working Walmart Electronic,s I had a couple bitch at me that none of the SD cards we had were 100 MBPS, the highest we had in stock was 98 MBPS. They wanted to use it for their Nintendo Switch, which I understand, but complaining about 2 whole MBPS is absurd, especially since they'd save very VERY little in terms of load times.
    "I can't have my games take forever to load" was what they had said to me.
    The shit some people think is insane.

    It still fucking pisses me the hell off that nintardo put a micro sd card slot instead of a full sized SD card when the is clearly 3x larger than the Nintendo 3ds which still has an SD card slot. An SD card is way more reliable because of its full sized nand chips and controller that don't heat up as bad as well.

    So a problem that i've run into a few times with SD cards and mobile is that mobile devices sometimes won't work with certain SD cards. I'm sure there's a reason for this but not sure what it is. While I suspect that 'gaming' title is just BS, but I wonder if part of the reason for naming it that is to make sure people know itll work with mobile gaming devices.
    Probably not though.
