What accessories for your s4


Distinguished Member
Are you planning on getting?

I need advice on a 32gb memory card and a case that's minimal and would fit on a Brodit holder (when they're made)

Anyone else feel free to time chime in with what you have

I have a Spigen SGP Slim Armor on order (Infinity White).

Got a Spigen Invisible Shield full body protection waiting here for the phone.

Might order a leather folio type case at a later stage once more types ate available.

As for the memory card query, a class 10 will be fine. £40 on amazon for a SanDisk 64GB one, seems good value.


Speed Class Rating

32 GB SDHC card
The SD Association defines standard speed classes indicating minimum performance to record video. Both read and write speeds must exceed the specified value. These are defined in terms of suitability for different applications:[40]
Class 2 for SD video recording
Class 4 and 6 for high-definition video (HD) to Full HD video recording,
Class 10 for Full HD video recording and consecutive recording of HD stills
UHS Speed Class 1 for real-time broadcasts and large HD video files
The specification defines these classes in terms of performance curves that translate into the following minimum read-write performance levels on an empty card:[41]
Class Minimum performance
Class 2 2 MB/sec
Class 4 4 MB/sec
Class 6 6 MB/sec
Class 10 10 MB/sec
Speed Classes 2, 4, and 6 assert that the card supports the respective number of megabytes per second as a minimum sustained write speed for a card in a fragmented state. Class 10 asserts that the card supports 10 MB/s as a minimum non-fragmented sequential write speed.[41] By comparison, the older "×" rating measured maximum speed under ideal conditions, and was vague as to whether this was read speed or write speed

Wikipedia has the class explanation, class 10 is for full hd recording and stills. It's all about the speed it can handle things.

See above post.
