Question [Q)] About Swap on Class10 card

Hello my question is simple, everybody knows about fits low ram issue.

If i buy class 10 sd card (ex: 16gb), can i give 1 gb ram to phone with swap ?

Will it effect to performance ? System cpu speed enough but ram really low

Thx for answers...

You could use SD card with swap to extend the ram but it going to be dead within 2 weeks because of the exessive Reads/Writes

I did used for a couple of days a 10 class Sandisk of 8GB with swap enabled and did not impact so much on performance.

Today bought http://www.digitalversus.com/memory-...6172/test.html (not from amazon but same card), 512mb ext4 and 256mb for swap with CWM use... (I will use high values later )

Results are okay, everything faster than i imagine. A lot of cards have 2 year guarantee, like this one. If your card dead in 2 week like k3eNaNz said, you can change easily in my opinion ( so use local market). And developer said 7 years usage time...

However i'm so happy , i'll add more virtual ram to my fit without speed loss

1gb ram on galaxy fit not bad

Yes a lot of class10 - 8gb microsd card around. Search in xda " clockworkmode swap" you can find many topic about this.

But remember, you should need class 10 or above sd card, ext4 and swap supported kernel too. ( so a lot of kernel and rom support these functions)

I also use 32GB class 10 sdcard. But I'll never try swapping. Coz even if I do have backup on my laptop but windows 7 disonnects the sdcard during copy/paste via card reader. So in case my sdcard is dead by applying swap & I buy new one...windows wont allow me copy files back... & using FTP to transfer files is very tiring process with possibility of errors...But it's my opinion guys.

Swapping not like real ram, like i said virtual ram. But All of you be can sure, virtual ram really boost the (our) phones x10 times.

Example: closed ext swap last night (from clock work mode) and installed "ram manager pro." And added 1gb (1024mb) (also will add 2048mb) swap ram to my fit. I did because of clcokworkmode give only 256mb swap ram.

Result: All apk's first open really open like vanilla (default). But after second one, you can see improvement. Speed comes with smile. And best thing for you, ram optimitizion scripts and task killers not necessary. Because swap file directly answer your response with 30mb/ps(+) read rate.

Recommend: Try with 8gb class 10 sd cards, they're cheap nowadays, you won't regret

Tip: Galaxy fit support only (maximum) 32gb sd cards.
