If you have an iPhone, you are probably all too familiar with the pop message that reads “Storage Almost Full – You can manage your storage in Settings.” Even those of us with high-capacity iPhones are frequently deleting photos, videos, songs or documents in order to make room for new data. Since iCloud only offers 5GB of free storage, iPhone users have no choice other than to delete data or data dump on to their computer in order to free up space. Now Lexar offers us with an alternative solution. Without further delay, let’s take a closer look in this Lexar JumpDrive C25i review.
Lexar JumpDrive C25i Review
Design and Features
Often times, deleting valuable data off your phone is not an option, and since the iPhone is a mobile-device, you probably do not always have your computer nearby to perform a data dump.
Introducing the Lexar C25i JumpDrive for iOS. With drive capacities ranging from 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB, Lexar has created a product that expands the memory of your iPhone and allows for convenient portable storage. For iPhone users that take large videos or store a lot of music on their phone, the C25i is a godsend. Lexar’s solution is simple and efficient.
Using the Lexar Media Manager app for iOS, you simply plug the C25i into the Lightning connector at the base of your iPhone, click on the app, choose which files to move onto your jump drive and which to leave on your internal drive. If you want to playback files that you have transferred to your C25i, you just plug the device into your phone and open the file via the Media Manager app. When you are ready to transfer the files to your computer, you merely plug in the USB 3.0 and download the files as you would with any standard flash drive. The C25i requires no batteries or network connection to operate, uploads quickly and sports a sleek metal design.
Only music files not protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) can be managed with the Lexar Media Manager app. You will not be able to select grayed-out, DRM-protected files.
“The app is compatible with iPhone 5/5s/5c, iPhone 6/6s/6s Plus, iPhone 7/7 Plus, iPhone SE, iPad mini 2/3/4, iPad 4, iPad Air 1/2, iPad Pro 9.7 inch/12.9 inch, and iPod touch (sixth generation).”
With the 64GB model priced at $71.49 on Amazon ($94.99 Retail), Lexar’s C25i is quite a bit more expensive than your standard 64GB USB flash drive, but this device offers far more functionality and compatibility than the average portable drive. With its modern physical design, intuitive app, high-speed transfers, and simple iOS integration; the Lexar C25i JumpDrive is a high-value investment for any Apple iOS user.
The Lexar JumpDrive C25i flash drive is available for purchase at Amazon (see link below) and the Lexar website.
