Re: Question on Micro SD card size and Speed
32gb is the highest recommended
are size. But I saw someone post a while back that said they were were able to get a 64gb to work, but only after formatting it in cwm. It seems the card size is compatible, but the filesystem that comes on the card isn't.
As far as class (speed) goes, a class 10 is the highest class they make (as far as I'm aware)
BUT I have recently been reading about the card classes, and I found an interesting bit of info. While the class 10 may have the highest read/write speed, that speed is for sequential reads or writes(like taking a video), some lower class cards may actually be better for random read/writes (like what happens when you are using the sdcard as your /data partition).
