Just an FYI, I recently purchased a microSD (as in, last week) and when it arrived it was counterfeit. It was advertised as 200GB, and h2testw verified over two tests that is was actually only 30.8gb (32gb). I tested it once as fat32, and once as exfat. Same result. The card was sold by amazon.com, I made sure to check before ordering. Edit: The model ordered was a SanDisk 200GB Ultra MicroSDXC UHS-I Memory Card with Adapter - 100MB/s, C10, U1, Full HD, A1, Micro SD Card - SDSQUAR-200G-GN6MA.
Make SURE if you are purchasing a microSD for yourself or as a gift coming into this holiday season, that you test it (the preferred testing software is h2testw, which is freeware), no matter the source. Due to sheer laziness on Amazon's part, the counterfeit cards get mixed right in with the real ones. The negative side of this is that you are getting at most 1/6 of what you paid for, the card will likely be slower than typical, your game data will 100% be corrupted if you use these cards due to their overwriting nature, and it takes three hours or so to test these large cards. Finally, you'll have to ship the defective item back.
