    Question Micro SD: Class 6 or 10

    Will it make a huge difference either way?

    If its only music and photos, which would be best?

    Sandisk ultra seems to be a popular choice.

    For recording HD video, its recommended to get the higher class card. But nowadays there isn't that large a difference in price between Class 6/10 so I would just get the class 10 card.

    That will definitely do the trick. The one I ordered was the 64GB variant of the same brand.

    So is the sandisk card preferred over the samsung cards?

    I actually have both and have heard good things about both. I'm sure you can't go wrong with either.

    I don't think any card is preferred over the other.

    It's all about value/performance.

    I have SanDisk products, but bought the 32GB Samsung micro SD card for my S4.

    I'd gotten the 32GB Class 6 Samsung Micro SD card for my note 2. I'm pretty happy with it.

    For right now I would avoid SanDisk unless you can be sure you won't get one of the defective cards.

    I got the class 10 when it was on sale during the holidays, typically its $50-60 for a 64GB SanDisk Class 10 on Amazon.

    Newbie question here... what is the difference between the sd class 6 and 10. Never heard about them, just thought that the only difference was the storage capacity.

    Hmm wouldn't it also make a difference if you use a usb port like 2.0 or 3.0 when connected to a pc.

    A higher class means that it can write to the card faster. It also generally means that reads from the card are slower.

    It's subtle, but if all you are dealing with is large, linear files (like songs and movies), then a higher class is better. If you are using your card for anything complex then a class 4 or class 6 will probably work better for you.

    For what Android uses the SD card, you probably shouldn't worry about. Get a class 6 or above.

    i want to get SanDisk Ultra 32 GB MicroSDHC but ive read complains of gs3 n note2 users saying that this card wasnt compatible with those phones.
    So will it work on d gs4? on those devices the card got corrupted after a month or it keeps unmounting itself.

    Should be fine. I got the 32g ultra sandisk one for the GS4 and until it comes out I have it in my android tablet works perfect. And I put 6 bluray movies on it with no problems.

    Thanks fot that detailed explanation. Would keep it in consideration if my sd card dies but for music and photos maybe one or two movies Ill stick with the sd card that came with my epic. Sprints already charging too much to spend extra on a sd card.
