The best one and the fastest one I could get was Lexar 32GB (32GB is enough for me). It came with a very nice USB 3.0 capable SD Card reader too. Here is the link:

I paid for a class 10 Samsung microsd card at BestBuy. The packaging clearly stated class 10. The card itself was labeled class 4! Immediately went back into the store and showed them. Digging through their stock we came across one with a class 10 marking on the card itself. Well over a year later I ran a benchmark on both the internal and external cards just out of curiosity. Surprisingly the supposed class 10 card was significantly slower (about 5 times slower). Needless to say, that pissed me off. Be careful what you get and don't assume you are getting what you are paying for.

Added which brand to the post

I've been using just a normal sandisk class 10 64gb for over 2 years now. using it just for my photos and videos. the only thing i want is not for my card to die with all the information inside.

Class 10 by itself doesn't mean much, since the class represents serial write speed. While that's good for pictures or video, what's really important for apps is random write speed. Many class 10 cards are optimized for serial write speed and actually are SLOWER than class 4 cards at random writes.

That said, I recently upgraded my U1 Sandisk Ultra PLUS to a U1 Samsung EVO+, and I'm getting noticeably faster random write performance.

I been using a Kingston Class 10 Sd card 64GB been working fine, but I wanted more space so just bought a SanDisk Ultra 128GB Class 10 XC.
I didn't know you could get such speeds from SD cards

£40 128GB excellent price

Can it be formatted as internal memory in Android 6?
What about Samsumg Pro Plus?
