    Will a class 10 micro sd work in my d2g? Found one on sale for a ridiculously cheap. If not what is the highest class that will function.

    All classes are compatible.
    The card's class determines its highest transfer speed.

    Class 10 doesn't work very well. If I remember correctly the highest that works right is class 6. There was a thread on here that had a good discussion about it but I cant remember the name of it.

    Class 10 micro sd means that the read speed is 10 mb/s which is pretty darn fast compared to most Class 2 cards, reading only 2 mb/s.

    I think I found that thread last night. From what I read a class 10 will geek out your phone, some even had problems with class 6 according to the thread.

    I used to have a class 10 micro sd and it was always screwy in my droid x. Max read/write speeds were no better than a class 4, and it constantly had trouble writing to the card to save files, like pics videos, etc. Using a class 4 now and it works great, super fast

    Class 6 Transcend SD card here, with no problems.

    Looking at NewEgg the class 10 cards are just not that reliable yet. In time I am sure they will be.


    General comment but I have this app:
    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.sdincrease.it&feature=search_result
    Tends to help with my SD Card speeds. Theres a thread on XDA somewhere talking about how the android phones coded setting for read/write speed are lower then what they could be. Perhaps Google does this to help with stability of class 2 cards. Some people reported huge increased, Some reported smaller increases. For me the increase werent huge. Write speeds werent improved much at all but read speeds jumped alot. You can use this app to test the before and after speeds.

    Guys... The class doesn't even really matter. All it means is the MINIMUM write speeds. Cards that are rated as class 2 or 6 will perform JUST AS WELL IN OUR PHONES as class 10.

    Then how come it is always been recommended to use a Class 6 card for apps2sd? I just find that really hard to believe that we see no difference.

    Obviously if you're running apps from the SD card, a higher class will work better. Given the fact that we have 8GB of internal storage, why would you ever run app2sd? It just increases the odds of something going buggy with your phone, and slows down its performance.
