The cool packaging of the NFC SDHC 16GB card includes the basic information about the products, along with its speed ratings. The back side of the package lists some additional info in various languages.
The card itself has a typical size and fits into cameras, card readers etc A small slider lon the left side lets you lock the content of the card.
The basic function of the Toshiba NFC SDHC card is the Android app that can be used to see the contents stored in it. All you need to do is to hold your Android smart phone close to the card. The information that the NFC SDHC card ca display on your phone;s screen includes the given name and the storage capacity of the card, the remaining available space in the card, and the type of data that is stored inside it.
The NFC card is powered by the radio frequency field from your smartphone. It operates in the industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) radio band at 13.56 MHz with about 14KHx bandwidth. FC supports up to 424 kbits/s.
The app will also display a maximum of 16 thumbnail pictures for you to identify the images that are stored in the card. We measured a total time of about 20 seconds from initial pairing to load the 16 thumbnails. A short "Data loading is completed" massage appeared on the phone's screen upon completion of the task.
The thumbnails have circular shapes and each one is expanded in a larger circle as they are scrolled. The most recent photos are shown first, followed by the rest. The thumbnails are ordered in scattered positions around the screen, making them look random.
In order to see a non-cropped version of each image, you should tap on its thumbnail. The 160x120 pixel JPEG images appear in 4:3 ratio and include their date info. And if you long-press a thumbnail, you can import /share it using other apps installed on your phone.
You can see more detailed card information by tapping the "i" icon on the card diagram in the center of the thumbnail view. Information includes range dates, names, a pie chart showing the card usage, the total size and number of images and other files on the card, as well as the total space used and available on the card.
We noticed that the app cannot read RAW files stored on the card.
Obviously, you can only see the pictures and not transfer them, as the specific card lacks support for Wi-Fi.
We tested the card with a Kingston Multi-Card Reader FCR-HS3 and various benchmarks (CrystalDisk Mark, ATTO Disk and HD Tach RW). The card reached the 37 MB/s sequential read speed and 12.8 MB/s sequential write speed. Using a different card reader, even one compatible with USH-II, should not make any significant difference, as the card has been designed to meet the Class 10 specification (10MB/s continuous write speed.).
