    I usually use sandisk but I’m wondering if there is any other sd card brands that are good and not as expensive as the sandisk brand. Looking for a 400gb sd card that is good, is there is any other options before I end up buying a sandisk that is good and not a fake counterfeit card.

    Sandisk or Samsung. Samsung is often faster.

    I'm using a PNY Pro Elite MicroSD Card 512GB. It has A2 V30 spec and it's the fastest card that I ever used. And it's cheap.
    I also have Samsung 256GB, Lexar 256GB, Sandisk Ultra 128GB but the PNY microSD card is just way faster.

    During my testing using a Pocophone F1 phone with SD Card Test, I got 63 MB/s write and 90 MB/s read speed. The fastest so far.

    To avoid fakes, look at the amazon packaging. If the card comes packaged in like a plastic cover or zip bag, it's 100% a fake. I'm uploading pictures

    Even if the low price is tempting, don't go for Kingston Canvas Select (128GB for 8€), they are realy slow.

    And a few Kingston cards died/performed like crap in Raspberry Pis. Go for Samsung Evo or Pro.

    Here to just say, Toshiba cards might not work when flashing them, had issues with mine. Sandisk works flawlessly. Samsung EVO is the most recommended as far as I saw tho.
