    Hi, am about to get a new micro SD card for my Samsung Galaxy SII. Have used class 4 cards in my Galaxy Ace and HTC Desire and whenever I try to scroll through photos there is a delay as they render - fuzzy for ages before they appear nice and crisp - am really sick of this. Not a card problem as have tried different cards in different phones and the same rendering delay occurs. Am now looking at a class 10 card for Galaxy SII as hopefully this will solve the problem. Can anyone tell me how good the A-Data 32GB class 10 card is? I'm tossing up between that and a Lexar 32GB class 10. The Lexar is quite a bit more expensive than the A-Data - will get it if it is a lot better / more reliable but won't if the A-Data card is just as good. Have seen NZTeckFreak's comments about class 2 and 4 cards being just as good in terms of in-phone use but that hasn't been my experience - the rendering delays are really annoying and I want a card that fixes that issue. Thanks.

    It has nothing to do with the card. Rather, its the app. They load only the thumbnails whenever you open the app, and open only the particular image file when you click on the image. It makes the gallery open faster even when there are thousands of photos there. No matter what card you use, it will always render. The only difference will be is how fast it will render.

    Agree, I think this is probably the app. Are you using Quickpic? Most of us end up on that because its quicker than the default app.

    on my SGSL, quick pic stays on the thumbnail mode for less than a second before going full reso.

    Thanks. Will try Quick Pic. I still need to get a new SD card. Can anyone tell me how good AData cards are versus Lexar as they are the two options I'm looking at - both 32GB Class 10 (but Lexar is a lot more expensive than the AData card).
