    Does anyone know if my video will improve, meaning no more dropped frames if I use a Class 3 or 4 SD card?

    I really really wish someone with some clout on a popular blog or website would do a story about microSD classes so that we have a absolutely definitive answer on the subject. The debacle needs to be solved once and for all. There are lots of opinions out there and unsubstantiated claims, but does anyone have some solid data that can answer this once and for all specifically as it pertains to our phones and the Android system? Call it Android Mythbusters and answer this question plus other ambiguous ideas that are important to the world of our favorite phones.

    You can find all the info you need via Googl search. But, no. Class 4 offers almost no benefit for Evo use. Class masters with write/record speed. Evo reads fast enough at class 2 for everything. Class 6 will make a diff when transferring from pc to Evo and reverse for very large files. Evo is not true hi-Dec so class 6 and 10 aren't full utilized.

    It's like putting premium gas in a Tercel. It will work but offer no tangible benefit. HTC would market the heck out of it if marketing class 4/6/10 was really a feature.
