I have a SanDisk 32GB Class 2 card in my phone and it is very fast, tests like a Class 4, everything opens quickly, movies play perfectly, no corruption etc... Got it on Amazon 9 months ago for $60, I'm sure they are cheaper now. The point is, you get what you pay for. I chose to pay more and have much less of a chance of all my pictures up and vanishing or my data becoming corrupted or my MD5 checksums not validating etc...

You do not NEED a class 10 holy omfballs card in your smartphone, a good class 2 is going to be just as good and even if there is a somewhat appreciable difference in testing, I highly doubt you notice it in every day actual operation of your device.

SD, SDHC, microSD, microSDHC, etc are standardized formats so generally you're able to run any capacity or class rating assuming you stick with the correct card types. That said, the Motorola site indicates we can only run up to 32GB. Recent firmware updates may have increased this since its realease and newer 64GB microSDHC cards MAY work, but its a risk especially considering the manufacturer specifications. You may only be able to access some of the card or none at all. IF you decide to go for it, be aware of microSDXC formats starting beyond 32GB - these would further complicate things due to the new/different standards.

i remember seeing people getting 64gb cards to work on devices that only supports up to 32gb, by formattingit in a different way
