This memory card is ideal for boosting the memory of your mobile phone. Still, it would have been nice to see a slightly faster write speed. You'll have to be patient when saving larger files.

New Format

Sony QD-S32 S-Series 32 GB XQD Card award

Sony QD-S32 S-Series 32 GB XQD Card
The XQD format beats CompactFlash and SD on data transfer speeds. The Sony XQD S Series 32 GB QD-S32 is the fastest memory card we've seen yet, outstripping even the speediest CF models. The only downside is that you'll need a special card reader to use it, and the only device currently compatible with this format is the Nikon D4.
