    So aseems recommends a class 2, which is what came with the phone. It seems to work just fine even with apps stored on SD. Playing videos is fine as well. So why would a class 6 be necessary? It's an honest question - not trying to start an argument.

    I want a larger card but haven't bought one yet because I don't know if I really need a class 6.

    Class rating for SD cards is about "guaranteed write speed". It's not some general overall speed rating.

    Therefore, it only makes a major difference when you're copying data TO the card. Read speeds for all SD's is really fast, though it will vary among various cards.

    I have a 16GB class 2 card and it works quite well.

    +1 on the A-Data 16gb class 6

    zero issues

    I regularly back it up to my pc and restore it if needed

    fast and zero issues

    My GOOD FRIEND aseems is hesitant to try new things ie root, so probably doesn't want to gamble on a bigger card if all is OK

    The only A-Data card currently showing up for me on TigerDirect is a class 2.

    But the class 6's that are there are twice the price of the class 2. So if you really need/want the speed, pay up. Otherwise, the class 2 cards are cheaper and work just fine (though a little slow to put the data on them).

    I don't often copy large files TO the device, so I go cheap.
