SD Cards are a popular form of saving data in today’s portable devices. Although two cards can physically look the same, there can be some major differences between them in speed, performance and price. This video attempts to examine and explain these differences in a simple way.
An SD card contains Nonvolatile memory used to store information in lots of electronic products such as mobile phones, digital cameras, tablets, video camera and GPS devices.

High-Capacity (SDHC) **** – over 2GB-32GB
Extended-Capacity (SDXC) **** – over 32GB-2TB
Extended-Capacity with input/output (SDIO), which combines input/output functions and data storage. (these are only fully functional in host devices designed to support their input-output functions)
Three form factors sizes are currently available:

micro size ****
**** As of this video the most popular formats are full and micro-size SDHC and SDXC formats.
Host devices that comply with newer versions of the specification provide backward compatibility and accept older SD cards.
