SanDisk iXpand Review

Software & Performance Testing
When you first insert the drive into your iPhone’s Lightning port, the phone immediately recognises the device and asks to divert you to the App Store to download the iXpand App. The application is small in size and very quick to download so you can be up and running in no time. However, the application itself takes a long time to complete any task, particularly if you’re backing up tens of gigabytes, like I did. Even doing something like opening up your Photo Albums to choose which photos to back up was slow, taking about 90 seconds, and then scrolling through was laggy and laborious; it didn’t feel well-optimised at all.

The experience may be better on a newer iPhone, but my iPhone X feels perfectly quick in all other tasks and, at least in my opinion, is far from being “an old phone.”
