    interesting. I never knew this? I guess I got stuck with a Windows Phone with no SD capability, so oh well. But the fact that I have to use some crapsoftware to actually interface with my Windows Phone is quite annoying.

    not a surprise at all that Microsoft is able to do something right. They've been doing right for quite a while now IMO.

    Google, still has no idea how to execute a plan.

    its definitely a class 10. they stopped selling class 6 a long time ago.

    if you have a UHS-I device, then you can get UHS-I speeds. otherwise, it will default back to class 10.

    UHS-I stuff is SD Spec 3.0x - UHS-I Speed Class 1 and 2 (50MB/s and 100MB/s)
    Class stuff is SD Spec 2.0 - Class 2/4/6/10

    In this particular case, the UHS-I in the SanDisk Ultra series will only benefit read speeds.

    SanDisk Mobile Ultra 64GB MicroSDXC 30MB/S UHS-I Class 10

    In a USB 2.0 Reader/Port:
    - Read - 20MB/s
    - Write - 14MB/s
    In a USB 3.0 Reader/Port
    - Read - 44MB/s
    - Write - 14MB/s

    Yes, its the fastest out there right now, lol

    There is the Extreme Pro 95MB/s MicroSD, but the largest size is 16GB.
    And naturally, no phone right now would support those speeds.

    But take a peek! :p

    If I were that serious about HD recording, I'd prefer a real camera, not a phone. And I dont need it for games & apps.

    My phone is 90% full now and I have a bunch of movies on it.I even shared a few movies to a few random people with gs3s in a bar.This kid gave me ip man 1,2 and 3 and it took up like 4gb and I gave hime a few movies also.

    I was amazed how fast the wifi direct goes on the gs3,it took about 6 min to get all 3 HD movies from one gs3 to another.

    I will use the 64gb stick with ease as I use my gs3 as a media server now in my network.

    Just buy the 64GB. Even if one were released tomorrow, it's MSRP would be in the $150-200 range which isn't cost-effective. If you really need more than 64GB of space, I would rethink my storage strategy.

    My first hard drive was 25 MB. (Yes, that's MB.)

    Just sayin'.

    Ironically, my Razr HD (which is Moto's latest and greatest, released after they were bought by Google) has a microSD slot.

    However, I'm told it doesn't support NTFS (or exFAT). That means only 32 GB is sufficient. I'd probably get a 64 if it supported files over 4 GB. Why files so large? Just because I don't want to reencode what I already have.

    Seriously. If your video files for a mobile device are >4gb then you're doing something wrong.

    In 2012, if you're encoding your files multiple times at different sizes for different devices, you're wasting your time. Even mobile devices in 2012 can easily play back 1080p. The only limitation is storage space. With microSD, that doesn't have to be a limitation.

    Obviously not as you wouldn't have this trouble if you did. :p

    If you're really worried I think there's a few ways round it but you'll need root.
