The best microSD Cards for the Nintendo Switch

Being an hybrid between home console and portable system, the Switch keeps Nintendo's tradition alive to release innovative hardware unlike anything else in the market, seeking to create its own space, separate from its direct competitors – Sony's PlayStation 4 and Microsoft's Xbox One.
One of the many peculiar aspects of the Switch is the storage system. Internally the console comes with 32GB of available storage space (although a significant amount of that is exclusively reserved for the operating system as ROM and can't be used or modified). This means most Switch owners will very quickly run out of storage space after buying a few games, specially if buying digital versions. Luckily, Nintendo made it possible for anyone to use microSD cards to expand storage on the console!
Here are some of the best microSD cards for the Switch (or any other compatible device) that you can find at GearBest!
Maybe you're more of a casual gamer and not planning on buying that many games per year. If that's the case, a 32GB microSD card could be the best option for you. It will double the original storage capacity of your Switch and give enough space to manage your favorite titles.
A 64GB microSD is the next best option if you expect to play a considerable amount of games in the next few months, while still planning to do some library management after some time.
The Nintendo Switch officially supports up to 2TB of external storage, however, such capacity is not publicly available, yet. In the meantime, while it is a lot less than 2TB, a 128GB microSD is probably the best starting option for both casual and core gamers getting a Switch and looking on to use it for years to come. With a 128GB microSD (plus the console's internal 32GB), the user will have enough space to play fan's favorite The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and other launch games, as well as download a good amount of content.
