My Memory Card Choices for the HTC Desire HD
HTC EVO 3D Memory Card Types
The HTC EVO 3D will be able to use 2 types of memory cards.
- Micro SD – This type of memory card can hold up to 4GB of pictures, video and music.
- Micro SDHC– This type of memory card can hold up to 32GB of pictures, video and music.
We get a lot of questions as it relates to the differences between MicroSD and MicroSDHC. There really is no difference. The main thing that separates the two is the fact that the cards have different size capacities.
Micro SD cards can hold up to 4GB worth of pictures, video and music.
Micro SDHC cards can hold up to 32GB worth of pictures, video and music.
Other Vital Memory Card Information
When looking at getting memory cards, you should be aware that they all have different speed class ratings. Speed ratings of 2, 4, 6 and 10 are there to show the speed of which data is written and read from the memory card. Class 2 – Minimum of 2 MB/s performance. (Slowest)
- Class 4 – Minimum of 4 MB/s performance. (Average)
- Class 6 – Minimum of 6 MB/s performance. (Above Average)
- Class 10 – Minimum of 10 MB/s performance. (Fastest)
If you are looking at getting a HTC Evo 3D Memory Card and you want to know what the best speed to get, stick with the Class 4 and up. The Class 2 can work, but it can be slow when it comes to recording video. If you have plans on using the MicroSD/SDHC card in another device such as a camera or camcorder (With the SD Adapter), then you should certainly go for a card that has a Class 6 or higher.
Do I Need a Memory Card for My HTC EVO 3D?
The HTC EVO 3D will come with a memory card, but sometimes people choose to upgrade, especially if they have a lot of data requirements. Memory cards that are shipped with the phone usually fall into the 1-2GB range and if you are someone who plays a lot of music, takes pictures and videos, then you’ll find that these card sizes will fill up quickly. If you will be utilizing the full multimedia offering that the HTC EVO 3D has, then you will definitely need to go and get a bigger memory card.
What Size HTC EVO 3D Micro SD/SDHC Card Should I Get?

My recommendation would be to go and get a 16 GB or 32 GB MicroSDHC card. These card sizes are perfect for this phone, as they will be able to provide enough space to store everything you can think of. They will not fill up quickly at all and you are going to be really happy with the amount of storage space that you will have.
