    The main players are:
    Kingston
    Samsung
    Sandisk
    Lexar

    Not so big players include:
    Transcend
    Sony
    Amazon
    NCP
    Toshiba
    Supertalent

    If using Samsung, many people say get Samsung memory card best, as somehow their samsung phone and Sandisk always have conflict and end up Sandisk card die.

    Kingston speed is not that fast though.

    I've been using Transcend and Kingston and not experienced any problem with it.

    They arent in order

    If using Samsung, alot of users been saying get their memory card better... Esp S3 or S4

    Personally, I have been using Sandisk (since 128MB's era -> microsd), Kingston (since 512mb era~ -> microsd) and Samsung (since 1GB era -> eMMC's)...

    I recently bought Lexar's cards but been rather disappointing. I mean the performance of it.

    Oh, and with respect to speeds, maybe this could help:

    Go for kingston. I have a friend who's been using it and he's very pleased.

    I suppose his only complaint is the speed.

    All in all you can't beat a lifetime warranty.

    Whatever brand you go with just make sure it's class 10 or the newer uhs class. If your going to do it do it right you know.

    Samsung and ADATA I've tried both UHS-I 32GB. Equally good.

    An old but interesting read regarding fakes:
    On MicroSD Problems « bunnie's blog

    Some shops in a certain squarish building sell parallel imports.
