3 Essential Guides to Select Storage Media MicroSD

3 Essential Guides to Select Storage Media MicroSD

While selecting a MicroSD card, the most important things to consider are the reliability, the price of the SD card, the processing speed, and the warranty on the card.

In a tablet or phone, apps always store data in small pieces shattered all across the card. Therefore, a microSD card needs to be very fast in processing speed, reading, and writing chunks bits of data (normally about 4kb) in different locations. However, large media files like videos may be stored in a single piece, this is solely dependent on the app developer. Less of importance is how fast the SD card can read and write large data files compared to the 4kb versatile speed on tablets and phones still they are important. Below are 3 things you should check while selecting a SD card.

1. MicroSD Card’s Speed

Speed consideration matters so much especially for special projects. A photography project which needs RAW format savings of photographs in high-resolution requires a high speed MicroSD card for fast saving and access. If you need a direct video recording and want to save directly to the SD card, then choosing a high speed SD card is recommended. However, if you are using a consumer camera saving only few photographs, the speed may not really be considered.

MicroSD cards’ manufacturers use (speed class) to measure the speed of each SD card and these are in four variations ranging from “2-10” with intervals of 2. The speed class “2” SD cards are the slowest while the speed class “10” SD cards are the fastest. Talking about suitability, speed class 2 cards are suitable for video recording with normal definition while the speed class 10 cards are best for Full HD Video Recording. Speed class 4 and 6 are suitable for video recordings with high definition.

The question of how to know the speed class or if it has special devices for checking the speed class is no longer a problem. All SD card speed is printed on the card. There are cheap SD Cards for sale on online stores and you can also see the speed rating on the online listing. Go for your choice. Also, note that there are some SD cards with no speed classification or with 0 SD card speed classification. This cards are probably those produced before the introduction of speed rating system and needs more attention when choosing one as some of them may be slower than even a 2 speed class SD card. In summary, not all SD cards have the same speed.

2. Check The Physical Size

Different devices have different SD card slots. Selecting a miniSD card or a standard SD card in place of a MicroSD card could be the worse choice ever.

MicroSD cards appear the smallest sizes of all SD cards with measurement of 15x11x1 mm and weighs as low as 0.25 gms. Majorly, they are used on smartphones and cell phones with SD card support and/or in other devices like tablets. A MicroSD card will only fit into its matching slot. However, you can use an adapter which allows fitting MicroSD cards into larger SD card’s form to be used in an appropriate slot.

3. The MicroSD Card Capacity

Just like solid-state drives, USB Flash Drives, Hard Drives, and lots of file storage media, MicroSD cards have different storage sizes.

Selecting the best microSD card when relating with size have often become a great challenge especially for non-professionals. Much focus has been on 64GB MicroSD cards recently because they cost around $20 and even the majority are cheaper and more available when compared to their counterparts (128GB, 32GB, and 16GB).

By knowing this, check if your device supports (extended capacity) cards before making a choice of which to buy. If the 64GB MicroSD card doesn’t have extended capacity support, it’s advisable to consider the 32GB. However, if you desire to store large files and your choice is 128GB MicroSD Card, it won’t be a wrong choice but expect it to come in higher price and still with functionality just similar like the others; just higher storage space is the difference.

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
