Great card once it is formatted correctly,
This review is from: SanDisk Ultra 64GB MicroSDXC Class 10 UHS Memory Card Speed Up To 30MB/s With Adapter - SDSDQUA-064G-U46A [Old Version] (Personal Computers)
Initially when I inserted the card into the Samsung Galaxy S3 it recognized it but it wasn't able to format it correctly. After doing some research I found a free program EaseUS Partition Master [...] that will format the card into FAT 32 since Windows no longer allows you to do it by default. After formatting it into fat 32 the phone recognized the card and it works great now. I hope this helps anyone else that might run into this problem.

Why didn't you just format the card from your phone? Insert card, go into settings, and format from there. Bam, done!

Why did you choose FAT32 over exFAT? There's a reason MS doesn't support FAT32 passed 32GB.

I can answer that I recently got the card my self and tried using exFat and my device would not recognize it. I reformatted it to fat 32 using the program the op suggested and it worked like a charm.

The samsung S3 user manual says it will only recognize FAT32.

After you format it to fat 32 with the program. Can the memory card and provided sd card adapter be used in a camera? I want to be able to switch out the memory card from the phone to a camera if I need it. Did you download the free software from cnet? Has anyone tried this on the Galaxy Note?

I can't get my PC to recognize this so when I tried to format it using the EaseUS software, it doesn't even come up for me to reformat it into FAT32. Any suggestions?

only crappy thing about formatting into fat32 is that your limited to under a 4gb file size per file.
