I hardly ever use memory cards these days, but I'm guessing most Class 10 cards from reputable brands like Sandisk, Kingston, Samsung, etc. should do the job.

If for "Adoptable" storage (I know M1P doesn't support adoptable storage...):

However, can enable the adoptable storage as below:

For other purposes, anything as long as legit "Local MANUFACTURER Warranty". Be extra careful when purchasing as there are 90% imitate products in the online platforms. Many fell into the trap and after 1 month or so the microSD card spoiled. Later claimed that this brand is not good lah, not reliable lah, slow lah, etc. Actually they bought fake so-called "ORI" product with 3 years or 5 years SUPPLIER warranty.

Something to ponder:

I have tested one plus camera app on my M1. I tested version 3.0.8 and ver 2.0.0.
One plus cam app has a lot of pro settings to take photos, if I use Auto in low-light environment, the result is noisy but sharp. There is no bokeh feature. I opted for ver 2.0.0 because ver 3.0.8 has bug that I cannot open photo gallery from the cam app. Sorry no sample.

Very delicate process. But worth the effort if aesthetic is the main criteria...

A risky procedure. But good if you got the skill. Why don't they make note phone like m1p with dedicated microsd slot.

Using microsd expansion is actually not very good for performance. The phone will need to constantly scan the card for files and it is especially slow when a slow microsd card is used.

That is why iphone and google phones doesn't allow microsd. Other manufacturers add them because of demand. I only use microsd card for upgrading rom and rooting stuffs.

1st reason = courage = follow unreasonable Apple concept.
2nd = limited internal space for other components.
3rd = to clear old stock of hybrid tray. Same story to the charging port not using type-C until today.
4th = have to redesign the layout of internal components like mobo to suit new triple slot tray. They prefer to maintain or do minor adjustments to the existing layout to reduce manufacturing cost or try to recycle the existing mobo.

Yeah.
For normal use most phone nowadays come with enough storage and memory though. Microsd is not as needed for most people's usage.

Actual answer is "no". But the workaround is to use SIM adapter as shown below:

Yeah, agree. I’m not planning to own the M2 hence I won’t be starting that thread smile.gif

Reasonable amount of discussion on the M2 still allowed here till a dedicated thread is started, hehe...
