SD Card Formatter… What is that? Personally, I don’t know about it until I was facing slowness of my micro SD card. Yup, SD Card Formatter is a very helpful tool.

How to benchmark SD card performance on Android?
There are several benchmark tools on Google Play Store to benchmark SD card performance. After tried out some of them, I found out that SD Tools and A1 SD Bench provide accurate and consistent data.

Therefore, you need to benchmark several times to get the correct result.
