My friend resently purchased Samsung galaxy tab 2  7.0 P3110. i want to gift him a memory card for it but i am very confused which one to choose because of two reasons.

 

1. gsmarena says it supports 64GB memory card but the site from which he has purchased (Flipkart) it from says it supports to only 32GB. which one is true?

http://www.gsmarena...._p3110-4671.php

http://www.flipkart....54-bad327b001c2

 

 

2. which class memory card should i buy (class 6 or 10) i know 10 is faster but do Galaxy TAB fully utilise the performance enhancement of class 10 card over class 6 card or there is no performance difference in using a class 10 card on the galaxy tab as oppose to 6?

if you buy the class 10 then it answers both questions really right?

 

It seems it gets a boost using 10 over 6

so there is reasonable performane difference on class 10 card over class 6 card in using tab?

Class 10 cards are definitely better. Even though these cards come ready to go, you should format it with the device you are using it with, it makes a difference. The class ten cards really stand out when in video mode, and do not bottleneck the system. Even an improved battery life is had, meaning lower resistance.

The Class speed really shines when making back ups of the whole memory card... might help a bit with HD video recording etc.

doesnt matter one bit on Samsung stuff... they get a speed boost just using Class 10 cards doing nothing but putting the card in.... done it several times... havent formatted a single one.
