Which Memory Card do I need for my Samsung LG K10 Smartphone?

Make sure you purchase the right Memory Card for your Smartphone. Your LG K10 built-in memory is 16GB. Users who demand more memory from their Phone can install an external microSD or microSDHC (High-Capacity) memory card with a maximum capacity of 32 GB. Do NOT buy an SD Card or microSDXC you need the microSD version! Many microSD Cards come with an SD Card adapter for compatibility with SD-enabled devices, such as cameras, camcorders and (notebook) computers. Memory cards usually come pre-formatted and do not need to be formatted out of the box.

We recommend storing multimedia files (such as music, videos and pictures) on an external memory card in your device to free up your device’s internal memory for applications. Plus, if you buy a new Smartphone, you can simply put your external memory card in your new device and all your data is back immediately.

The SD Association defines standard speed classes indicating minimum performance to record video. The class indicates the minimum writing speed: Class 2 = 2 MB/s, Class 4 = 4 MB/s, Class 6 = 6 MB/s, Class 10 = 10 MB/s. A fast Class 10 card is the best option these days, especially for recording or playing Full HD video.

MicroSD cards are usually shipped preformatted with the FAT file system. Your LG K10 supports only the FAT file structure. If you insert a card formatted with a different file structure, your device will ask you to reformat the memory card. Formatting your memory card on a PC may cause incompatibilities with your device. Format the memory card only on the device: Drag down the notification bar and tap the Settings icon at the top-right. Tap General > Storage. Tap Erase SD card > Erase SD card. If prompted, enter security code > Next. Tap Erase SD card to erase.

Popular memory cards for this Smartphone include, but are not limited to: Samsung EVO 32GB Class 10 Micro SDHC Card with Adapter (MB-MP32DA/AM) and SanDisk Ultra 16GB Ultra Micro SDHC UHS-I/Class 10 Card with Adapter.
