As I got my new Ximoi smartphone clicking super quality HD Photos and Videos I almost stopped taking my Canon 600d on trips & treks. With increased use of new smartphone for shooting there was need of Extended Memory of my smartphone. So my research began comparing the most popular MicroSD cards in Indian market.
Basic criteria was to look for a MicroSD card that is the Fastest and most reliable one.
Also while capturing HD Videos most important thing was the Write Speed of my MicroSD memory card
[Slow write speed results into reduction in continuous shooting time of Videos or Photos, even you may face data loss issue if Phone still try to write data at higher speeds]
Further card Reading Speed is also important while watching the photos on mobile or laptop and copying them onto another device.
And what happens if you have tonnes of data over MicroSD card and it gets corrupted due to water or heat or dropping ? All the high Read / Write speed goes for a toss ! So Most important factor to consider is Reliability [and hence Warranty].
Ideally you should purchase the most reliable card possible so that your Memories are never lost, my logic is the manufacturer who provides the longest Warranty has great confidence in Quality of their products and shall be one of the criteria of selection of MicroSD card.
May be you look for cards, which are Waterproof, Shockproof, Magnet-proof and provides long Warranty such as 10 years 🙂 Such cards have survival chances much more than !!

After study & comparison of sandisk, samsung, strontium & transcend microSD cards I finally bought Samsung EVO class 10 microSDHC (32GB) due to its strong reputation as read over Thousands of user reviews on top websites like Amazon & Flipkart.
With 80 MB/s Reading Speed & 20 MB/s Writing speed plus astonishing 10 year Warranty Samsung is clear winner. Bonus is that it also provides Waterproof, X-ray proof, Magnet proof & shock proof cards which means you get best in class product at pretty reasonable cost 🙂
