Best microSD cards for Polaroid Pop iMore 2020

The Polaroid Pop gives you just enough internal memory to store ten photos. That works for quick, planned shots, but most photographers will need more room to capture a day's worth of adventures. The Polaroid Pop supports MicroSD cards up to 128GBs, and cards that meet these criteria are not hard to find. Some are more reliable than others, though. These MicroSD cards are the ones we trust in our gear.

My recommendations

MicroSD cards are not hard to find these days, but not all perform well. When I need a memory card that works in any environment, I go with SanDisk Extreme. Built to withstand the challenges of temperature swings, moisture, and bumping around in your camera bag, SanDisk Extreme is a tough little card with speedy read and write ratings.

I use Transcend Premium 16GB microSD Cards when traveling with my camera. They're affordable, have enough space for a week's worth of vacation photos, and they've never let me down.

If you want to take a lot of pictures at once, grab the Lexar 667 128GB MicroSD. Read/write speeds are quick, the price is low, and you can shoot away to your heart's content without worrying about running out of room on your card.
