    specs say 32 but a lot of phones now are able to handle 64 even when only stated for 32

    And I had mentioned before, I'm using a 64gb card in my Photon. Works perfectly.

    Oh and for those that are curious, it does seem pretty snappy (as far as transferring files is concerned). No slower or faster than the Class 10 32gb Lexar card that I had in it previously.

    Phones that include lower class sd cards as part of sales package do so to save cost, not because the included class is more compatible.

    Class numbers relate to speed. I haven't heard of any phone being unhappy all the way up to class 10, fwiw.

    If you want to move more GB, you want to consider a fast card.

    i was just curious cause im looking for a good class 8 or 10 HIGH storage SD card... most affordable ones are 6, 8 or 10 are more common the lower capacity you get but i want BIG and FAST :p

    a class 6 is good though, you should be happy with it unless you are going to be constantly moving content on and off of it (and big files at that)

    Im just wondering, will the average user notice a difference between a class 6 and a class 10? I would think if your primary use of the sdcard is to store music and photos, you probably wont even notice a difference in day to day operations. Just my 2 pennies.

    I've been using a Patriot 16GB class 10 I picked up at Frys for 16 bucks for about a year now.. its been reliable in several devices. Just an FYI: In case anyone was wondering about the reliability/quality of Patriot.

    If the price is right for class 10, why not?

    oh I agree, EM. wasnt arguing the purchase of a class 10, at all. Just saying, personally, I wouldn't let it stop me from getting a smoking deal on a on a card with a lower class rating... just because I dont think the avg user will notice a difference.. but, like you say.. if the price is right... jump on it!

    The cool part, once LTevo is released, the 64gig should come down a bit in cost. :D

    Just imagine, 80 Gigs on a phone!:eek::eek::eek:

    I'd imagine we'll see 64gb micro sd card pricing go down by fall and 128gb released soon. Then around this time next year, pricing for 128gb go down.

    64gb would be nice. I'm using a 32gb class 10 right now in my Evo3D. It didn't seem to be appreciably faster that the class 4 that came with my phone. Supposedly, as you start having more pictures and video, the lower class cards introduce a lot more lag going into the gallery. I don't know that for sure because I put the class 10 in the same day I got my phone. Even with my 32gb card, I'm down to 6gb free, due to music, audiobook, and a few ultraviolet movies.
