Increase Your Phone’s Storage and Performance with SanDisk A2 MicroSD Cards


SanDisk’s Extreme UHS-I microSDXC Memory Cards feature the Application Performance Class 2 (A2) spec, which includes optimizations to give Android users an improved mobile experience with faster app performance. The A2 spec allows the card to manage random read input-output access per second (IOPS) operations so it can quickly open apps and process accompanying tasks, such as audio, graphics, saved profiles, and in-app permissions. When compared to the previous generation of A1 media, A2 is based on the SD 6.0 specification, allows for minimum random reads of 4000 IOPS, which is up from A1’s 1500 IOPS, and minimum random writes of 2000 IOPS, which provides four times the 500 IOPS performance of A1.
