    Unhappy Phone slowed down after 32GB Sd card

    Hi,

    This is my 1st post on this forum and here is the issue i faced. I have Galaxy S4 i9500, i recently bought a 32GB class 10 Samsung SD card. I was expecting to get a better performance, however the opposite happened, my phone starts to respond very slowly, many applications started to hang e.g. WhatsApp, Launcher, MusicPlayer etc. To test if it was due to SD card only, i removed the SD card and inserted my old 8GB sd card and with that phone started to work just fine and smooth again.

    So is this normal behavior that maybe 32G card is too heavy for the phone or could it be that SD card was defected.

    Thanks,

    Rohit

    You might have a defective card. Are the 2 cards you have both class 10? That might make a difference too.

    No the other card that is working fine is a class 4 card. But how does higher class of a card can degrade the performance.

    It most likely isn't supported due to licensing issues. Not supported meaning it's not that it won't work, just may not work well.

    So a class 10 would not work well on S4 ?

    Last I knew it was hit and miss for how well they worked. Have you tried any other brand of cards?

    Hell yeah! Class 10 cards works just great. Especially the Samsung once. Saying otherwise is pure BS
