I have been using Sandisk 16GB Class 4 for a while now, and I need to increase my storage (32GB)
I am confused between these two cards:
Samsung 32GB Class 10 for 1599 INR (29.43 USD)
Sandisk 32GB Class 4 for 1216 INR (22.38 USD)
Which one should I go for ?

If your not looking for fast write speeds or using as a "swapped" internal memory, just go for the class 4, never pay more than you need for memory cards, they date to fast.

I thought greater speed (class10) would be nice,
I was just wondering if samsung is good against sandisk or not ?
Also does samsung cards work with WP7 ?

Why not go for the 64GB cards that are available now? They are selling for around $50 (for a SanDisk class 10 even) and they work great in an HD2. See my posts about this here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...41&postcount=9 Basically the same post here as well, but I added a bit more info http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1#post33102891 You can never have too much storage space.

Be careful with class 10 cards as for phone memory use they are not the best.
Good quality class 4 or 6 is best all round card with better sequential speeds that are more in line with phone usage thus better performers & cheaper/easier sourced plus less prone to issues/compatibility ...

I bought the Samsung 32GB Class 10. It is really fast. I'm using Android via NAND and you can improve your smartphon experience by upgrading your system with this card a lot.

I use SanDisk Ultra microSDHC UHS-1 8GB card.
Worked very well with JellyTime NativeSD ROM and now with WP7 ROM 8858. So cheap and lightning fast. I recommend it for everyone, great memory card!
