Done. Close thread.
Class 6 SD cards for a mobile phone are overkill. The class indicates minimum WRITE speeds. You don't need the higher write speed to listen to music or watch a video. It will take a little longer to write your files to a class 2 card initially, but once they are there you won't notice a difference between a Class 2 and Class 6 in everyday use in your phone.
For my money, I'd get a bigger 16 GB Class 2 card.
If I gave someone an Incredible with a Class 2 and an Incredible with a class 6 card, both loaded up with music and videos and files, I guarantee they wouldn't be able to tell which is which in everyday use.
16gb class 2 costs nearly twice as much, and you only save 2-3 bucks getting a class 2 8gb. So while you might be right, get the 8gb class 6 and be done. No point in spending hours researching it -- they pretty much all work great.
I just don't want people to think that they have to get a Class 6 card because a Class 2 won't be sufficient. People should focus their decision on the capacity, price, and manufacturer, not the class of the card which won't make any difference in everyday use.
16 GB Class 2 by San Disk = $36
8 GB Class 6 by Transcend = $20
Twice as much, yes, but also 2x the capacity.
By comparison, a 16 GB Class Class 6 runs about $60.
So yes, if you want 8 GB go for the Class 6. If you want more capacity, a 16GB Class 2 is the way to go.
I bought mine and received it already except now its 20 cents cheaper!! OMG
The 16 gb class 6 is $45 more. So unless you are uploading all of your music, you only need 8 im sure
I got a 16gb Class 2 Sandisk w/adapter for $24.95 shipped today off ebay..item 290432715857 if interested..
What speed is the card Verizon includes?
I got a class 6 card. Speed is important to me because I plan to transfers a lot of large files, such as movies. Also, I think write speed will make a difference in camera/camcorder performance.
Minimum write speed as designated by the class does equal actual or maximum write speed nor does it imply read speeds. Just putting this out there:
13 SDHC Memory Cards Reviewed : SD Memory Cards for Professionals
From the conclusion:
"However, read performance isn’t the issue: we found substantial performance differences of up to 100% in the write throughput benchmarks, where the cards delivered between 9 and 18.6 MB/s. And the speed classification didn’t help much, as some Class 4 cards delivered better write performance than some Class 6 products."
i just got a class 6 16g. planning on running a fair amount of music, movies, and roms
