Question Maximum memory speed / class the US GS3 can utilize

I'm pretty sure that I'll be getting this phone on Verizon when my contract expires on AT&T on October 4th. I'll get the 16 Gb version. So, I'll probably order a 16 Gb microSD card too. I know that UHS-1 cards are the fastest, but what is the fastest speed this phone can fully use. If the phone itself will be a bottleneck for UHS-1 cards, I don't want to waste my money on a UHS-1 or Class 10, if a Class 6 will work. I don't have money to waste!

I don't have any files larger than 4 Gb, so SDXC versus SDHC isn't an issue for me. SDHC is all I'll need.

By the way, I'm moving to Verizon purely due to AT&T coverage issues at my house. My wife and her parents have already made the move on our shared plan.

For me, the 32GB class 10 was the sweet spot, representing the best value (speed/capacity/cost).
