For those of you who are looking for a memory card for your LG Stylo 2, then you are definitely in the right place.
Below, I’m going to highlight some of the best card options available for your phone, as well as some other crucial information that you will find extremely useful.
Best Memory Cards for LG Stylo 2
While it can be really difficult and annoying searching through the 100s of memory card choices, I have searched and highlighted the 3 best for your Stylo 2. Storage space, performance and cost are just some of the benchmarks I considered in recommending the cards.
If you have the LG Stylo 2, then the perfect SD card for your phone would be the 128GB option. While it is double the price of the 64GB, it is still a pretty good buy, simply because of the amount of storage space that it delivers. If you take a lot of pictures or video, then you can feel secure using this card, knowing that it will take a LONG time for it to fill up. It also delivers exceptional performance, so you are winning no matter which way you look at it.
If you feel you need a lot more storage than 128Gb, then you should definitely consider the 200GB from SanDisk. It is not priced outrageously and you get a whole lot of storage space to upgrade the phone. Definitely a card to consider if you are looking to upgrade.
I really like the 64GB MicroSDXC card for the Stylo 2, simply because it offers the perfect balance when it comes the amount of storage it delivers, as well as performance and price. It will not break your pocket and it is definitely a card that is worth what you pay for. No worries about the card filling up too quickly or being too slow…great choice!
I was contemplating if I should recommend this card, simply because it is a bit expensive, but I realized I need to be highlighting the best available options (regardless of price), so the 256 GB from SanDisk is a go! This is a top of the line memory card and you are definitely not going to be hurting for space with it! Performance is solid, but the storage is where it shines. You can take tons of high quality photos and video and feel at ease knowing that you have an incredible amount of storage space to work with.
What Size Memory Card Should I Get?
If you are wondering what LG Stylo 2 MicroSD card you should get, then the answer is not so straight forward.
It really depends on how you plan on using the phone, the amount of data storage activities that you will be doing, among different things. I have broken down the different type of phone users below and this should give you some insight into what card you should get or not.
If you are someone who uses their phone a lot, which means taking a ton of videos and pictures, then the smaller cards won’t work for you. You will definitely need to invest in any of the card offerings of 64GB or higher. You will fill up smaller cards quickly, so they kind of don’t make sense.
If you fall into what we call the normal user, which means you use your phone like an average person, then I would still say going with a 64GB/128GB card, or you could even get something smaller. Memory cards are pretty cheap and it is always good to have more memory than less.
Barely Uses the Phone
If you are one of those persons who only use the phone to make phone calls and uses occasional app, then some of the smaller memory cards are what should be on your radar. I honestly think a 32 GB is good enough, simply because it is so cheap, however you could go with a 16GB & 8GB and you will be good.
Memory Card Differences
