Default What class of microSD card is recommended?

Just got a Vivid yesterday and so far it's great (much preferred over the Nitro, btw). So now I need to pick up a microSD card. I thought it would be simple, but I'm lost as to what class (2, 4, 6) I should get. Any tips? Thx.

The higher the number the faster the read/write speed. The number corresponds with the speed in mb/s. Ex: Class 10 reads/writes at 10mbps.

My recommendation is that you should get the highest class you can get. You can't really future proof your equipment, but you might consider it an investment that could last you through your next phone maybe...

If the class is faster than the phone, then you have no problem, but you don't want to create a bottleneck with a slow card....
