Default Class10? Why on earth?

My question here is why on earth do you use/need a class10 card? They are extremely expensive, and its use is for some specific applications - like if you have a 20MP camera and you have to shoot at full resolution in continuous mode at 10 frames per sec, etc. (Write speed required will be over 90MBPS here, after the camera buffer becomes full the processing will stop) In contrast a movie even at HD resolutions and frame rate of 30 requires much less speeds!

I think class10 has an access speed of over 90 MB per second, and for all applications on the phone you dont even need 10 MBPS.

Would like to hear others' points of view.
