    im in the market for a new sd card and have been looking at the patriot 16 gig class 10 but have read mixxed feeling about running class 10 cards.

    my question is what do you suggest for a card im looking for a performance increase not more space. as i still have 6 gig free now.

    any help would be great.

    I believe Android has a limit on the write/read speed of the sd card.

    from what I've heard we pretty much see no performance difference between, say a class 4 and class 6, let alone a class 10.

    Save yourself some money and get a lower class card with the same amount of space.

    I would get a class 6 if I were in your position but a class 4 would be fine also. No need for class 10 though.

    I'm using a class 4 Topram 16 gb (got it on amazon for $30. Love it. It reads around 25 mb/s. You can also check out the app called sd card increase. Gotta be rooted though
