Would this SD card be overkill? I plan on shooting 4k videos or high quality videos and pictures with this phone.

I'm coming from an iPhone 5s - so i'm a little clueless when it comes to SD cards and mobile devices.

I have a similar class 10 and it does the job fine. Haven't seen any problems, although I haven't shot much video.

When I was shopping around, I couldn't find anything below class 10 that was a worthwhile cost saving without going for a unbranded card that I wouldn't risk buying.

I picked up a 32gb but that's because my aim is to save a lot of music on it, not the much more storage-greedy 4k videos. I'd say you'll be just fine.

TBH I kinda want to pick up a 128 because why not.

I am using a Class 10 32GB that I no longer use with my GoPro, I used 16GB for years and never had an issue.

Um. that's an SD card. It won't fit on your phone.

you need MicroSD.

I have a 128GB one from Sandisk that works very well on the G3.

LOL oh man. I wonder how many people (like me) didn't click on the link itself and just saw "64gb card" and assumed the OP knew to get a micro.

ha! thanks for pointing that out. I knew I would **** it up without asking. Thanks for the save. With that being said - good feedback in general and looking at some micros.

I will probably get 128gb. Just need to find a good one.

For 128GB, there is only one in the market. The Sandisk one. It's only $120 at Amazon now.

Oh and don't get swindled by the 'fake' $30 128GB card on Amazon. Read the reviews lol

Here is one I like, it's cheap, good quality and fast. The 32gb is ~13 so that's a better buy http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00CES...ef=mp_s_a_1_13
