It can handle the below:

Capacity: Upto 32GB
Class: Upto Class 6

You can use a class 10, but you will only get class 6 performance.

Class 6, download SD booster and set it to 2048 or so and watch it behave like a class 10.

Will my class 10 act like a class 10 with this?

I've 8GB Class4 microSD in my Desire. Now If I use 8/16GB class 6 in which field I'll experience better performance?
Will the higher class card's performance is limited to quality video recording? Please someone explain if anything more...

Class directly relates to transfer rate.

Class 2 can be written to at 2MB/s, Class 4 - 4MB/s etc etc. Although a class 6 has to be able to achieve 6MB/s, often they are faster than this. The class only refers to write speed. Reading speed is often much faster. So the higher the class the faster it can be written to or read from.

However, you can't really get over 6MB/s write speed on the desire.

That is because a minimum speed of 6MB/s must be achieved even on a card with a heavily fragmented data.

Just saw some guy reporting 14MB/s write speed on his Optimus One, while another one reporting 2MB/s with the same card on Nexus One (reportedly Nexus One limitation)...

Anything faster than about 450 feet/sec tends to crack the screen.

Thats 137.16 m/s which is 13.99% of the muzzle velocity of an SA80 A2 Assualt rifle. I reckon that sounds plausable when we look at percentage alone.

But then when we realise thats 61.32 Mph, I'm not so sure.

Have you tested this?

Have you tested this?


So, you are driving down the highway at about 60 MPH, holding your Desire out the window. Beside the road is a sign post with an SD card affixed to the side nearest the road.

You manage to move your hand fast enough to avoid hitting the sign post, but you cannot avoid hitting the SD card with the screen of your phone.

Do you think it won't crack?

That is, assuming you actually hold onto the phone and don't drop it.


Send me some spare Desires and SD cards and I'll be happy to test that for you.

No. I'm saying it will crack. I'm.saying it will probably quite easily crack at a significantly lower speed

What's your address? I'll send stuff over today. I don't drive so can't test

I think a human sneeze is about 60mph or so... maybe stick an SD card up your nose (any class) and sneeze on your desire and see what happens. The screen would need to be close to your nose though.

Well you guys have totally confused me now.

I was going to buy this, thinking it was a bargain - 17.99 for a class 10, reputable seller and brand.

PNY 16GB Micro SD Memory Card / Class 10 - Mobiles at Play.com (UK)

But now, is there much point if I will only achieve class 6 performance? Wouldn't I be better buying a class 4 for 4 cheaper?

Will be used for games, music, hd video and a2sd, maybe even data2ext in the future

Thanks for any advice.

If the difference is just 4, I'd go for the Class 10 card. It is possible that in the future you will use that card in a phone/ROM that will take advantage of the faster speed (much needed especially if you are thinking about data2ext setups).

I haven't yet, but I might in the next few days when I get paid PNY is a reputable brand. They maybe aren't so well known for micro sd's but certainly for normal sized SD cards, they are used by loads of people.

Default quick update

Since this thread appears pretty high up the Google rankings, just a quick update

I've just paid 22 for a Samsung 32GB Class 10 on Amazon.co.uk -- I assume it'll be genuine!
