    Hi all,
    I'm buying a micro sd card for my z10 , I was wondering which one would be best I'm looking at:

    Samsung 64GB Class 10 UHS-1 Grade 1 70MB/s MicroSDHC Pro Memory Card without Adapter: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories - 47.50

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-SDSD...bUvbUpU8159492 42.20

    Which one would be the best , I intend to use the phone memory for my apps etc and the sd card for all my media , or do you think 32gb will be enough , also which sd card are the best for the blackberry z10

    I would like to know this also.

    And I am curious whether a 64GB card will work in the phone, even though it is only rated for 32GB. Has anyone tried?

    The straight answer is yes, the card will work. Using a 64GB microSD card on your BlackBerry 10 smartphone | CrackBerry.com Needs to be reformatted in the phone first.

    Any class 10 card will be super fast. Make sure you format it using your phone...otherwise the phone may not detect it. I have a Sandisk one and it works a treat $40 odd quid from Amazon

    Looks like the second is a SD Card and not a MicroSD. The second does not fit in the Z10.

    You need a MicroSD.

    Edit:
    I have a brand ne Samsung(1.) here, but no Z10. Waiting for it...

    any name brand SD card works great. I have used Lexmark and right now I am using a 64gig Kingston micro sd.

    avoid at all costs.... any NON name brand sd card. they are not fully compatible.

    I am sure any brand name card will work. The Class 10 type would be best for speed. I have used Kingston and PNY SD cards in Blackberry phones.

    I found with the lower than Class 10 speed of cards the camera starts having some delay.

    I have the SanDisk 64gb class 10. And it works great. No problems what so ever. Just have to say yes to format it after inserting it.

    That sounds about right. You will NEVER have the full amount of space on a card or HDD or jump drive. It's the nature of the formatting process. A certain percentage of the space (usually somewhere in the 10% range) is taken up by the OS and the processes needed to make use of the card. The larger the card, the more space you lose. I have a 32GB card in my Z10 and I only have access to 29GB of it.

    That's perfectly normal

    They sell you 64 000 000 000 Byte and not 64GB. Thats normal. 1024Byte = 1KB

    =59.60464 GB

    Sandisk class 10s work great in all my devices (phone contour camera digital camera) you can find good cards off ebay just make sure you're buying from a reputable dealer.
