    What speed of class 10 micro SD cards is optimal for the M8? I'm looking at Sandisk and Samsung cards in the 64Gb variety, with speeds from up to 30Mb/s and 90Mb/s. I'll mostly be using the storage for music. Are the 90Mb/s cards worth it or overkill when it comes to real time performance? I'm okay with slower transfer speeds because I don't plan on switching out 64Gb worth of music often, so when I do I can just leave my phone to transfer overnight. I tried looking on google for any information regarding this to no avail, so sorry if this has been covered before. Thanks for your help!

    Since it is all music, and it doesn't need to read that fast, the higher speeds are overkill.

    Awesome thanks for the replies. So I'm guessing you'd only need the higher 90 Mb/s micro sd cards for HD video playback?

    I think the 90 Mb/s is more for 4k video.
