    Default What kind of SD card do I need?

    Hello!
    I'm looking into purchasing a SD card so I can keep all my music on my phone with me and I don't have to carry around my iPod Touch anymore.
    What is the recommended brand I should get, and what are the sizes?
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    The Sandisk Extreme micro SD also works exceedingly well and is substantially faster than the Sandisk Ultra. This makes a noticeable difference when moving files and launching apps.

    I bought the cheapest Sandisk 64GB card from Amazon. Came in an OEM package for around $45. I have all my music on there and it works great. Not sure if it's Ultra or Extreme (probably Ultra).

    Here's the graphs for the Sandisk Extreme vs. the Sandisk Ultra. The difference is tangible as the Extreme reads a bit faster and writes nearly 2x faster.

    If i'm just putting music on it will it make much of a difference?
    Will this work? SanDisk 32GB microSD Class 10 Ultra Card: Digital Cameras : Walmart.com
    Sorry if I sound stupid, but i've been a strict iPhone user until now, I have no clue about Micro SD cards. lol

    No for music it makes no difference, you are playing a 5mb file around 4 minutes.
    If you are saving 1080p video it may make a minor difference but I read a few years ago that for 1080p recording a class 6 is enough. That maybe no longer accurate though.

    So that particular one will work with this phone?

    Thanks so much!
