    a class 4 card can suffice anything a mobile device can do, the only benefit of 95mb/s will be transferring to and from the PC

    Not really, if you run an android device with A2SD or anything similar you need faster SD cards (Depends on the phone).

    my class 10 cards lag like a bitch. SD cards write differently to hard drives, so they cant handle small files as easily.

    with this, the phone/camera is the limit - how it should be.

    Heard of Burst Photo from semi-professional cameras and above? There is never enough transfer speed good enough for those. :) Also, try shooting 1080p @60 fps non-interlaced video, with very low compression, hehe!:rolleyes:
