    Hi,

    I am using a class 10 16GB card, but I seems a bit slow sometimes. Which are the tricks to get better performance?

    Should I create different partitions?

    Any suggestion?

    Cheers

    a class 10 shouldn't have any lag problems, how long have you had it, and have you formated it recently?

    I thouht microSD was only available in class 2, 4, and 6. Sure it's really a class 10?

    Wow that's pretty cool (and expensive). I just went with a Kensington 8GB Class 4. Picked it up at my local Frys for $17 yesterday.

    OP, are you sure it's a legitimate card? I wouldn't be surprised about counterfeit Class 10 cards being out already.

    I bought it from newegg, so I think it must be authentic.

    you should test it... transfer some files from your computer to the phone and see how long it takes... divide amount data in MB, by the time in sec, and let us know...

    my Class 2 Sandisk transfers at 6MB/sec... so i'm not sure I buy the whole Class thing 100%... i think it depends on source and brand...
