Class 2 is slow, need class 4 at the least, class 6 preferably.

Valid point, but Sandisk cards are excellent performers and their class 2 is probably equivalent to other manufacturer's class 4 anyway. Not sure high speed actually makes that much difference in a mobile.

Heat added.

also isnt the class just the write speed so should be fine unless recording in hd

Here we go with the class issues. Class is the minimum speed but you usualy get more . I have a class 2 that often has a speed of class 6 & on average performs to class 4, so unless you realy realy need a class 6, then this will be fine.
I use it in my Android pulse with no problems at all.

Good price for what should be a genuine 16GB card. Beware of 32GB micro SD cards sold for the same price by the usual suspects on the web. They are invariably fake.

Music skipping is a characteristic of the SF take a look at Modaco
try it on a premium Android you will probably find some differance in performance

If music is skipping try turning off scrobbling in lastfm if you have it installed. Or install doubletwist...

On the Class issue - here's a post from screamingninja in the post for the sandisk 16gb class 2 from 7dayshop at the end of August.

For those who are interested, here are some CrystalDiskMark benchmark tests i ran on this Sandisk Class 2 card and also on an 8GB Transcend Micro SDHC Class 6 card that i have which will hopefully give people a good idea of read/write speeds and whether their device/s may cope. I hope it helps:

Have to agree with that. I had a Sandisk 16gb and it was faster and played in everything. A 16gb Toshiba, and an 8gb PNY I have didn't.

lots of San Fran owners here

I'm still sceptical about class 2 supporting A2SD ! specially that it's SanDisk, as they know what they're doing and when they say it's Class-2 then it's really class2 ....

Don't know about the san fransisco. But my HTC desire behaves perfectly well with a class 2 32gb microSD with A2SD+ and has done for the past 6 months with all sorts of different firmware on the desire.

I'm sure it's a little slower for loading photos (don't know) but who cares, it doesn't exhibit any problems at all.

The SE W810i is ltd to 8gb and you'll need a micro SD to Pro Duo converter (another couple of £)

is this good for cameras?

Thanks this is the key info in that thread....

Its worth pointing out that the nand flash (flash memory) comes of one production line. The components are tested and ones that pass the high speed tests labelled up. Slower units and the rest of the batch are labelled up as class 2 after being test to work at class 2 speeds.

As the fab lines (the production lines that make these chips) are upgrade the yield of high speed parts increases. This means that new stock will often (but not always) perform significantly faster than rated.

I think today most lines are producing chips that are at least class 4 or higher so the extra money spent on "tested" parts needs to traded off against the large premium the manufactures charge. It costs them no more to test and make the faster parts, but they maintain the low speed image of class 2 as it allows them to ship their full inventory without diluting the perception of "value" in there tested class 4 and class 6 items.

Would this card be suitable for an orange San fransico android mobile with the speed of this card.

Plenty of comments above from other SF owners to help you.

I thought the San Francisco uses mini rather than micro sd cards?
