    What's the crack with these then, anyone know?

    How much faster do they read/write than the good, over performing Sandisk class 2 cards?

    Are they worth the extra 30 quid or so for when 720p recording is common?

    And what about Transcend one's, are they a decent make or should i stick to Sandisk?

    Thanks for any help or advice you may have! ;) :) :cool:

    Basically micro sd cards come in different classes,2,4,6 or 10 i believe and all that means is that they read/write data at different speeds,the higher the class the faster they are.


    • Class 2: 16 Mbit/s (2 MB/s)
    • Class 4: 32 Mbit/s (4 MB/s)
    • Class 6: 48 Mbit/s (6 MB/s)
    • Class 10: 80 Mbit/s (10 MB/s)

    So if you are playing/recording in HD it may pay to get a higher class sd card.

    As long as you're not rooted using a2sd+ then yes, its that simple. You may need to format it in your phone first.
