specs say 32 but a lot of phones now are able to handle 64 even when only stated for 32

In addition to what Covert said, a friend/tech at sprint uses his 3vo and has a 64GB sd card in it! Spec say's 32GB!

And I had mentioned before, I'm using a 64gb card in my Photon. Works perfectly.

Oh and for those that are curious, it does seem pretty snappy (as far as transferring files is concerned). No slower or faster than the Class 10 32gb Lexar card that I had in it previously.

Phones that include lower class sd cards as part of sales package do so to save cost, not because the included class is more compatible.

Class numbers relate to speed. I haven't heard of any phone being unhappy all the way up to class 10, fwiw.

If you want to move more GB, you want to consider a fast card.

i was just curious cause im looking for a good class 8 or 10 HIGH storage SD card... most affordable ones are 6, 8 or 10 are more common the lower capacity you get but i want BIG and FAST :P

a class 6 is good though, you should be happy with it unless you are going to be constantly moving content on and off of it (and big files at that)

Im just wondering, will the average user notice a difference between a class 6 and a class 10? I would think if your primary use of the sdcard is to store music and photos, you probably wont even notice a difference in day to day operations. Just my 2 pennies.

I've been using a Patriot 16GB class 10 I picked up at Frys for 16 bucks for about a year now.. its been reliable in several devices. Just an FYI: In case anyone was wondering about the reliability/quality of Patriot.

If the price is right for class 10, why not?

oh I agree, EM. wasnt arguing the purchase of a class 10, at all. Just saying, personally, I wouldn't let it stop me from getting a smoking deal on a on a card with a lower class rating... just because I dont think the avg user will notice a difference.. but, like you say.. if the price is right... jump on it!

The cool part, once LTevo is released, the 64gig should come down a bit in cost.

Just imagine, 80 Gigs on a phone!

I'd imagine we'll see 64gb micro sd card pricing go down by fall and 128gb released soon. Then around this time next year, pricing for 128gb go down.

64gb would be nice. I'm using a 32gb class 10 right now in my Evo3D. It didn't seem to be appreciably faster that the class 4 that came with my phone. Supposedly, as you start having more pictures and video, the lower class cards introduce a lot more lag going into the gallery. I don't know that for sure because I put the class 10 in the same day I got my phone. Even with my 32gb card, I'm down to 6gb free, due to music, audiobook, and a few ultraviolet movies.

I think I'll just get a 16g or 32g class 6, I really don't use a whole lot of memory on my SD cards. Most of the time I usually transfer my photos & music from the phone straight to my computer. On the other hand I do download movies to my phone so I will need the extra space.

i agree with you... in most cases.. speed would not be a big deal.

given that you have 16gb on board... that will be where most of the access will be.. from apps. they should hardly ever touch the SDcard. so normal playing around and usage of the phone.. it will mostly use the internal faster memory.

SDcard then is pushed to personal data: Photos, videos storage ...

the only real issue would be with camera speed... if you select it to save directly to the SDcard.. the faster that is finished saving the faster it can take another pic.

I tend to agree, but just to offer a counterpoint -- increased class speeds come at an increased risk of failure/lack of reliability (just check out the Lexar Class 10 32 GB MicroSD reviews on Amazon) and also (for some of the less known cards) reduced random seek and transfer times in order to improve the sequential transfer times that the Class rating is based upon.

Just food for thought.

I hate the ever long battle of card brands and class ratings, but excellent post Neo. It is cool to have a great mind like yours around again (I vacationed in Evo 3D land for a year).

You summed that up very succinctly, I'm definitely in agreement. Over the years of reading reviews, that the lesser known brands have often been more volatile and over time may have a higher failure rate it seems.

Transcend, Patriot, ADATA, etc. are some of the "off brands" that I think possibly utilize cheaper parts or craftsmanship and sometimes have a higher failure rate. Many people have also reported their SD card underperforming in accordance to the card's write speed class rating - on the other hand others have reported higher transfer speeds than their card's class.

Not to sound like a snob, but personally I would not chance things with anything but Sandisk, but everyone is entitled to their opinion and choice. That does not mean that Sandisk does not fail or are inherently better, because many people have plenty of luck with other brand cards. Its just a situation where sometimes you may get what you pay for. I think there is a reason that alot of fakes and knockoffs are rebranded and repackaged as Sandisk. How does it go, Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery?

More or less like you were saying I seem to remember a tech blog story a little while back that found and proved that the file system of a larger capacity class 10 card took longer to read and write smaller files, and recall them, than a smaller capacity lower classed card. Proving the theory that bigger and faster is not always better. You stated it much clearer though.

Thanks! I appreciate the kind words!

It's great to be back what with all the new excitement in the air for the new heir to the Evo throne. Though I like my Evo 3D a lot, it was a let down in many ways compared to the standard set by the iPhone 4. It finally looks like the LTEvo is poised to really push the boundaries for smart phone devices.

ps - oh and I was debating putting my own recommendation in my prior post, but yes, Sandisk is really where it's at when it comes to performance and reliability. Unfortunately, that comes at a higher cost than most other flash mfrs.

It finally looks like the LTEvo is poised to really push the boundaries for smart phone devices.

ps - oh and I was debating putting my own recommendation in my prior post, but yes, Sandisk is really where it's at when it comes to performance and reliability. Unfortunately, that comes at a higher cost than most other flash mfrs.
You always had a good head on your shoulders. I had forgotten that you had purchased the Evo 3D as well. I was thinking maybe you stuck it out with the Evo 4G. You were on the fence somewhat like I was I might be recalling? After the Evo 3D was out for a bit everybody posted less. Especially that Novox character. (Just kidding, now there's someone else with a good head on their shoulders)

Its great when people are posting and excited for a new device, everybody is welcome here.

It'd be very disappointing if it didn't, considering it works flawlessly with my Photon right now. And the Photon has the same amount of internal storage as the EVO LTE.

Yes. That particular card has been on sale around that price for some time. Cheapest I've seen is 19.99.

Ouch, some of the reviews on that are saying it's actually a rebadged class 4 card. Don't see how that can be legal.

Thanks for the heads up.

I didn't read the reviews at the time I ordered it. Which is unusual for me.

But they have several brand cards in the reviews. I just went through about ten pages of reviews for it now. It seems the "unbranded" cards are the ones people had problems with. I ordered the Samsung card. That seems to get good reviews. Read "Newest First" reviews.

Mine should be in by the weekend. I can post an update here if you or anyone else likes.

that's the card that I'm using, but I paid a lot more than that back when they were new. Been working flawlessly in my Evo 4G since shortly after I got it, FWIW. Thinking of making the leap to 64GB and higher speed for increased awesomeness, but this one has been rock solid.

Nah, it's a class 4. Not worth messing with IMO

Here's a couple goods deals currently running. All are 32GB class 10 cards.
Samsung with adapters - $36.50
Samsung - $35
or
Team brand - $25

Heh, don't have to imagine, I've had that on my phone since last September!

If anyone has any doubt I can tell you they'll work in this phone, as they do in every single Android device they've ever been tried in (do need to be formatted to Fat32 rather than their native exFAT which means you lose some speed, but not enough to cause problems). I've personally confirmed these work in the following: S1, S2, Note, Razr, Sensation, Transformer, Transformer Prime, Tab 7.7, Archos G9 Turbo, Photon, many other devices have been confirmed by other uses. Basically no Android device has been unable to use these.

$77.00 (It's through 3rd party retailer, so not sure what the tax or shipping is)
