Memory card for Nokia Lumia 520

Hello friends,

 

I recently purchased Nokia Lumia 520 and loving every bit of it. The space is bit low (8 gb) so I decided to add microSD card.

 

After searching online I have liked this one: Sandisk 32gb Ultra Class 10 Mobile Micro SD Memory Card Bill 5 Year Plus Adapter

 

Nokia helpcare said that if I want to buy 32 GB card, it should be class 10 UHS1 type. So I guess the above mentioned model will serve the purpose?

 

Will the card be compatible? Also he said that 16 GB class 6 HS microSD would be good for my phone. Please suggest.

 

I also wanted to ask that is there no way that apps to install on mem card? Does this lead to compatibility issue or this feature can come in future?

 

Thank You,

Shashank

 

 

Offtopic: I have experience in .Net using C# and wanted to develop apps for windows phone but I can not find the dev tools (SDK) for the same. Since my system is x86 and the setup requiring x64 machine it failed to install. Are there any alternatives.

The Max. size it supports is 64 GB and as far as the Class goes, a Class 10 SD Card will be an overkill. Go for Class 6

..and there is no way to install applications on the MC.

BTW, you should be able to store the Maps (Data) on the MC using THIS application ..You may use the same credentials that you use on this Forum to log-in at the Nokia BetaLabs site  ..

Thanks for the reply :smileyhappy:

 

By overkill does it mean that it will not be compatible? As I mentioned in my first post, Nokia helcare personal recommended me class 10 card if going for 32 GB else class 6 or 4 card for 16/8 GB models.
