    Can anyone recommend a good SD card for the phone preferably a 64 gig one.I'm not sure If I read it here on this forums or another that you shouldn't get a card that is faster than your phone (not sure what that means). Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I am using Samsung Evo Class 10 micro SDXC 64GB on my 1520. Got it for $45 on amazon.

    Speed is up to 48MB/s.

    Sandisk Ultra 6GB will be fine. ~30 (in the UK).

    The comment re speeds: probably means that you are effectively wasting your money with a 'fast' card if the phone can't use the speed - because it won't actually have any ill-effects, it just means you won't get the best out of it.

    What Racing Snake said! Also, I believe it's a requirement, for wp8.1, that you purchase a class 10 card - otherwise you won't be able to move apps to the SD.

    The sandisk cats are rather good, I have a couple of 64 gb cards for my surface pro 3, 625 and 1520. Never dismounted or acted odd.

    Speeds are particularly important if your camera is recording 1080p videos. As HD videos are large files, your storage media should be able to write large files fast enough while your camera is rolling. If your writing speed can't catch up, all you will get is error and your device will freeze. Plus of course it's faster to copy and transfer files.
