    I have the droid razr hd. I looked through some of the posts and it looks like I should get a Sandisk class 6 SDHC card. I found this one "SanDisk 8GB Class 10 microSDHC Card with Adapter" for $15.

    Does class 10 mean it is faster? Will this work with this phone?

    I used the same Sandisk Class 6 16GB card in my Droid 1, Droid 3, Droid Bionic and Droid RAZR M. Never had any issues. You should be fine with that one. I'm not sure if the Class 10 is noticeably faster...but have seen some posts on the Moto forum that some Droid RAZR phones didn't work well with a Class 10.

    Yes the 10 is faster on paper but in real life its not noticeable.

    Go for the class 6. It will work fine and you will save a few bucks as well.

    just my opinion Sandisk works for some just fine but really any other brand may be better even generic is good.
    lots of problems sometimes with Sandisk yes 10 writes videos faster to the card

    Samsung's read faster, Sandisk's writes faster.

    A lot of Sandisk's SDs are rebranded Samsung cards...marked up in price.

    The last SDcard I bought was a SanDisk 64GB class 10. When you move 10GB worth of TiBu backups, or multiple NANDroid backups the write speed is noticeable.

    For most normal usage, most people won't notice. If you move a lot of data often, get the class 10. If you do not move a lot of data often, the class 6 will be just fine.

    I have dozens of ADATA SDcards that I have been really happy with. Since my last two phones have not had SDcard slots, I haven't used them in a while.
