Top critical review
Compatible? Well, it recognised the Card - but it certainly isn't 'reliable' in my experience!
on 2 February 2014
I just wasted 4 hours syncing music onto this card in a newly purchased Nokia Lumia 820 Windows Phone.
All seemed to be going well - until I restarted the phone, which then would not boot; the glowing 'Nokia' text shimmering in distortion, soon to be followed by intermittent red and blue lines across the screen - an then a complete 'freeze' and lock-up. Only removal of the battery allows for another attempt... which repeatedly turned out in exactly the same way.
However, on removal of this memory card, things immediately returned to normal: a brief few seconds presentation of the white 'Nokia' text, without any other distortion, and then the 'Windows Phone' greeting screen appears, quickly followed by the Metro Interface itself.
Putting the card back in (a 50:50 gamble; but I wanted to be sure) resulted again in a correct and trouble-free start up; but ALL the music on the card had vanished (fortunately there was nothing else on the card as yet - having only had the Phone operational for less than 48 hours).
Clearly, there is either some fault or issue with the particular card I have here - or (as other reviewers here seem also to have experienced), a more fundamental issue of 'compatibility' with this particular card and the Nokia Lumia 820 Windows Phone itself.
I am now off to consult with Nokia on this issue; but until I have a fully functional and 'reliable' experience using this particular 32GB SanDisk Micro SDHC Memory Card; I can neither recommend it to anyone else - nor can I confirm that (in my experience at least) that it is in any way 'compatible' with the Nokia Lumia 820 Windows Phone, as its advertising headline here on Amazon claims it to be.
If/when I have further information or a satisfactory explanation (or resolution) to this situation; I will revise this review accordingly.
