Micro SD's

Postposted on Mon Apr 15, 2013 4:16 am

I'm looking into getting a 64gb card for the S4 when it arrives

Is there a speed at which the performance isn't noticeable with regards to the different grades, or is it always best to go for the class 10?

I have no idea whether a slower card will noticeably affect the performance of the S4. But even if it doesn't, a class 10 gives you more flexibility in case you want to use it in another device that requires a class 10 card later on.

Performance isn't really noticeable. The only thing you might even have an inkling of is when you're copying to the card from the PC. Even then, I don't even know if that's USB/other things capping speed rather than SD write speed.
