Old photos, but illustrates my point,,, 4k random read

and most telling of all, , 4k random write

So, as i said, for large, contiguous files, like video, a class 10 will run really well, but do something that requires a lot of small, random read write operations, and your class 10 card is gonna feel like it's in mud.

Yeah, I agree. But chances are if you're using an SD card on your phone, most likely its gonna be for videos, movies, obb files for games and other large chunks of data. Rarely these days do you see a file less than 100kb that's not a text file, so when it comes to most people, the higher the SEQUENCIAL R/W speeds, the better.

Of course, the target use is the deciding factor, (though i'd possibly disagree with your inclusion of games in the list, since games don't necessarily use large single files to be read sequentially.)

I was just pointing out that the post

Just to clarify, when I say games, I was talking about big 3d games, and they have huge texture and map files that are often 10s of mb or even 100s of mb each. Angry birds obviously don't have these, but large games you want to be on the sd card like MC, NFS, NOVA, etc do.
