    Does memory class speed make much difference on a smartphone?

    I currently purchased an HTC Pro2. I am interested in adding some additional memory, possibly at least 8gb or 16gb. Problem I hit is, would the class speed really make much difference on this phone, I know there's class 2,4, and 6, 6 being the fastest, 2 being the slowest. Also is there any brand that's not too compatible with the HTC pro2? I know my old env touch did not like kingston modules.
    I am mostly trying to figure out if it's really worth paying extra for a class 6 vs a class 4 and I also notice the higher the memory the more rare it becomes for a class 6 modules, all I see is some odd name brands for the 16gb modules.
    Whats a good place to buy non-counterfeit memory well priced?

    I don't know, but when it's less than $22 shipped for a Class 6 8GB, does it really matter? Newegg

    Yes. The speed difference will be noticeable. I'd go for the faster card.

    Man the 16 gb modules are expensive compared to the 8gb. I would prefer 16 gb for movies, music n such.

    Yeah generally (but not always) the higher the gb the slower the speed. If speed is a huge concern you should go with the class6 8gb card. If space is a bigger concern than go with the 16gb card.
