    Hi there,
    Just wanted to ask If I should use class 6 or class 10 SD card for installing apps/games?
    What is the basic difference? Performance of apps/games will be poor if I use class 6 SD card?
    Sorry if such question is asked before.
    Thanks in advance :)

    In short, the higher the class, the higher speeds the card can reach.

    Recommended 10 since who doesn't want speed?
    But I haven't seen anything to indicate performance will be poor on a class 6, I have an anecdote of a guy enjoying games on a class 4 without any problems so hmm.

    I'd say it will come down to price.

    The higher the class, the better the write and reading speeds.
    I use also a class 4 and the only downside i found is that if i move for example
    "Angry Birds Go" to the sd i got long loadingtimes.
    That should be logical, because SD is slower than the internal storage.

    Don't bother with ratings. Go with actual Read/Write benchmarks.

    I bought a 32GB SanDisk Mobile Ultra class10 uhs for 20bucks off ebay, and i love it. Though i have some lags and glitches with games installed on it. Sometimes my whole phone is unresponsive while downloading and installing a game/app on it. Just thought to share this with you guys. Lumia 1320 8.1 DP.

    Thanks for sharing.
    But I think lags,glitches and unresponsiveness is due to 8.1 DP.( I've same issues)
    I hope Cyan will fix these annoying issues.

    Not all class 10's are equal.
    Like someone above said, check the read and write speeds.

    For large games like grand theft auto install on the phone, for small games like angry birds install on SD card. Makes a hell of a difference :-)
