I have a Samsung 32GB class 10. 35

However, personally I would give allways priority to Class and Speed, more than capability... Mobile phones are dinamic, and you use them in a dinamic way, you don't need them as a long term backup drive, but as something you use everyday.

I'm using lexar 16gb Class 6. Bought it off from eBay.
Good performance, benchmark is close to a class 10, hovering at ~9mb/s write.

recently bought 32gb Lexar class 10 with neat usb dongle (for easier phone to pc connection) - all for 34.90$ (free shipping included) from eBay...

search ebay for
Lexar Class10 Micro SD Micro SDHC Card 32GB 32G +Reader BULK

(i see it went down a few bucks now)

review - fully satisfied with it even its performance isn't in the range of some sandisk cards... but i get 10mb/s+ write - 16mb/s+ readings in antutu...

Yes, I got the same one, few bucks less but exactly the same transfer speeds. Approx 10MB/s write, 16MB/s read. I'm satisfied for the amount of money I paid.

To be sure I bought a 32GB class 10 SD Card, and the price was close to the class 6 one of the same capacity... I never regret of my purchase

Me too but I would recommend a better sd-card class....but for normal use, the 16gb class 4 for 4 is cool.
