The Xperia XA1 and XA1 Ultra are modern Sony smartphones, operating in the midrange of the market. Happily, that means that they come with Micro SD card slots that are a cheap way of extending the amount of storage space on your phone.
Better still, you can use this space to install more apps, copy over a sizeable music collection or even have access to HD films and other videos. Micro SD cards are also great for storing your photos and videos, particularly if you’re recording slow-motion or high definition (1080p or 4K) footage!
Here are our top recommended Micro SDHC cards for the Sony Xperia XA1 and Xperia XA1 Ultra:
3. Kingston Digital – 32GB, U1
This Kingston Digital Micro SD card is a great budget choice that doesn’t compromise too much on space or performance. You get 32GB of space, enough to more than double your available storage, while hitting the enviable UHS Speed Class 1 rating (which exceeds the old Class 10 rating). This card can read at speeds of up to 44MB/s, making it easy to launch apps or stream videos.
2. Samsung Evo Plus – 64GB, U3
Next up is Samsung’s Evo Plus, which has double the storage at 64GB and an even faster UHS Class 3 speed rating. Thats enough to ensure read speeds of up to 100 MB/s and write speeds of 60 MB/s, making copying photos off your phone or launching apps an extremely rapid process. You can even record 4K video with no difficulty, something that isn’t possible using slower cards.
1. Sandisk Extreme Plus – 128GB, U3
We conclude with Sandisk’s Extreme Plus series, which provide unparalleled storage and performance. This card is pricey, but packs in 128GB of expanded storage to ensure you’ll have to spend months or years filling it up before you eventually have to clear it out! It’s fast too, with read and write speeds of 90 MB/s, with the latter being faster than even Samsung’s rapid Evo Plus card. If you want the best of the bet, Sandisk’s card is where it’s at.
