    I'm getting a note 4 for my wife and have a question about a memory card for it. The phone comes with enough memory for most anything she ever would ever do with it as she won't have a ton of multimedia files and such. My question is this. I am thinking about giving her the 32 GB card that is in my Note 2. The thing is its only class 4. I know the write speed to and from the card wouldn't be as fast as possible but being such a lower class card on such a new phone is there any reason it wouldn't work or be problematic?

    Only if she's recording 4k videos or doing burst mode stills. It's fast enough for 1080i videos and manually shot pictures.

    I would go off the deep end and get her a good quality 64 gig class 10 card. They samsung 64 is about $30.

    My experience is that all but Samsung-branded SD cards eventually fail in the Note 3 & 4.

    Burst mode pictures are saved to the phone memory regardless of what class card you have in your phone.

    True. I had a SanDisk Ultra one which started unmounting itself for no reason and was draining the battery terribly. Sandisk sent a replacement and that failed too. As soon as I replaced it with a Samsung evo card all problems disappeared. Will never use any other make but Samsung in my Note.

    My experience is that Panasonic and Sandisk Extreme work well in my Note 3 and Note 4. Sandisk Ultra? Not so much. ...had 2 of those fail in my Note 3.

    Let it snow.

    I wouldn't recycle the older card into your Note 4.

    Especially as cheap as a 32GB Class 10 card will be these days.
