    I have 100% legit 1000x-2000x Lexar (m)SDs from Hong Kong and their read speed are f**king fast! :D
    Sandisk uses TLC chips which has 1/10 durability than MLC chips (which Lexar 1000x-2000x use).

    All Sandisk micro SD are not the same. Some are good, others not that much. The same for Samsung, Lexar, Trascend...

    A good SD will do the job, regardless of brand.

    dont buy online! there are plenty of small phone accessory shops everywhere, and the most of them dont sell fake shit! and are as cheap as online sells ( i bought 2 32gb and 2 64gb mSD's from shops like that...) and you can ask em to test the cards before buying, i usually ask just for a quick format...

    The only fake SD cards I've ever seen are the plastic molded ones you see in a laptop's SD card slot to prevent dust from getting in.

    Otherwise I dont know why the hell you had to specify that the SD card had to be "legit"

    I would recommend Transcend and Lexar microSDXC that comes in 128GB. I could also recommend Toshiba but that comes max. 64GB at the moment.

    I have Transcend 64GB microSDXC (marked 45MB/s) but their read speeds are far better than that, almost twice. Probably MLC and they are made in Taiwan.

    Toshiba 64GB microSDXC (marked 30MB/s) and their read speeds stays above 30MB/s, (64GB microSDXC made in Japan, 32GB microSDHC made in Taiwan).

    its kinda obvious what he means legit = real specs, fake = china scam cards that say 128GB but only hold 2GB before everything goes down the crapper
    in my experience a lot of smaller independent mobile phone accessory shops do have dodgy stock, they can be a mixed bag, and its not just online = fake, if you actually bother to use your brain and avoid the BS ebay sellers and only buy from major retailers you can buy online just fine, and if you really insist on buying on ebay just check their feedback while there will be thousands of idiots mindlessly leaving "wow so happy with my $5 128GB SD" there will be a few more informed folks who will out if a seller is selling dodgy cards, if you see even 1 "sells fake SD cards" i would avoid them like the plague....although personally i just always go to the good old bricks and mortar and well established shops for SD cards 90% of the times,

    one final note a "quick format" would not show any signs of a SD being fake, you would need to perform some proper tests i.e H2testw or other SD verification tool, i would imagine there would be something like that for android phones
