    That is an amazing price.

    Be cautious when buying class 10 cards. All the class speeds do is guarantee the minimum read/write speed, not the maximum, so you could get a class 10 which reads/writes at 11MBps and a class 2 that reads/writes at 16MBps.

    Also, not many phones are capable of utilising the full read/write speed of the card anyway, so it's only useful when you're using an SD card reader on a PC, or using your SD card in a device which is capable of utilising those speeds. Not sure what the read/write speed on the GS2 is so might be worth looking into.

    Read some reviews about various cards and see what people say about them. My class 4 card writes at 13MBps and reads at about 17MBps.

    In that case I'd still recommend looking out for a lower class card with decent reviews. A lot of the time people post data speeds in their reviews so look out for one that has acceptable speeds.

    You'll save a lot of money buying a lower class card and buying a high class MicroSD card is like buying a high megapixel camera - pointless (usually) ;)
