tl;dr: largest savings is $0.54 = 5% off

Not trying to be mean but ....Why compare the Amazon price to the inflated MSRP at BestBuy when it's more appropriate to compare the Amazon price to the market price at Amazon?

$8.96 Compare: $9.50 3-month average price at Amazon, Range [$8.96 - $9.99]
  • Save 5.6%

Oh, well look at Mr Moneybags over here. To good to save 5%?

Actually that was a some really helpful research, thank you for taking the time and effort for posting it

While some complain about speeds, I am rather impressed with this drive. It really shines where older USB 2 drives utterly fail. That is when copying/moving many small files. It easily copies many hundreds of tiny files in seconds rather than twenty minutes on an old USB 2. drive I have.

Why is it so much faster? I honestly do not know. But it manages 150 MB per second READ speed on single large files. Write speed is a respectable 20 MB per second SUSTAINED for the whole time. (It starts higher, but never slows to less than 20 MB per second.

Please do not misunderstand. Maximum speed is nice, but sustained speed over a long write is the real test of how fast a drive is. Does it get hot? Yes it does. But not nearly hot enough to burn me. And certainly safe to the drive itself.

Getting hot probably does decrease the life of the drive. But I do not expect it to last a decade. And if you do, please spend some time thinking about that. A decade ago the biggest flash drive you could get was around 128 MEGABYTES. This is one thousand times that size. I really hope this drive is vastly obsolete by then.

To other reviewers: Please do not say the drive is burning hot. That is an opinion. While I appreciate the information, it would be nicer to hear what actual temperature both the drive, and the ambient port of the computer reaches. Surely some of you have one of those handy IR thermometers? Sadly I do not. Anyway, thanks for reading.

The phone doesn't have to remove anything. It has no sentience.

I don't like these for one reason. When plugging in the USB-A side to a tight usb port, it's likely to close the flash drive instead of actually plug in.

So can this be used like an external hard drive for your phone?
Yes, as long as you do not mind the size.

I have this one https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07P7N41LN for a year now and it works as expected for me...

I have this. The USB C plug on mine is so unbelievably tight, I thought I broke it the first time I plugged it in. I would not recommend it.

Good price but just warning that these may be prone to failure on the locking mechanism. I have 2 and both of them do not lock strong enough so that when you try to plug it in, the head plunges back into the housing. One happened after 2 months and the other at 4. I used them frequently. Funny I had 2x usb 2.0 to micro usb ones in the past and they also had the same problem. Its pretty annoying and I've stopped using them

Good post, reppd.

But one little side note:
The temperature required to "burn" human flesh is probably not an opinion. ie- water boils at 212 degrees F... for everyone...every time...

I have the 128 GB version and I have this same problem. I would not buy this again because of the mechanism issue.

Depends on the case. My Note 10+ case does not get in the way of plugging in this device.

Good info and reasonable points there. I have to nitpick a bit about the flash drive sizes though... a decade ago in 2009 I had a 2GB Kingston DataTraveler, and a 1GB one, and a 512MB Dell USB flash drive. People with more money than me could buy multiple GB drives at that time like 4GB+.
