32gb micro sdcards are pretty cheap these days so I am thinking of getting the S3 with 16GB and buying a 32GB sdcard. What class sdcard does the Galaxy S3 require?

I am using a 32gb class 4 card in the DroidX. I had a class 10 card for it but had to return it as the DroidX won't work reliably with the class 10 card. Don't ask me why but apparantly the DX is picky. I don't want to go out and get a sdcard that doesn't work properly.

Or just pay samsung $50 more for the 32gb phone?

Higher class speeds have more to do with write speeds than read speeds. If you are a patient kinda person and dont mind waiting to dump a movie or a ton of music or other files to your phone, then save the Grant and go for the 16.

Not sure how fast a 32gb GSIII's write speed is... but if its faster than class 4 card, then I say go for the 32.
