You need to upgrade your SD card for WP8.1 and some bad news for 520 owners

Windows Phone 8.1 brings the new capability to install apps on the microSD card, if developers allow of course, and will allow users to no longer be limited in any way by the built-in storage on their phone.

CXC reports however that Microsoft has set some special requirements for using memory cards to install apps on Windows Phone 8.1.

According to them a minimum of Class 6 SDHC card is required, with Class 10 recommended.

Class 4 and below will not be supported, with the OS automatically detecting the speed on insertion.

If the card is too slow users will not be offered to move apps from the phone to the card.

The requirement should also help users avoid performance issues when saving video to external cards, which can be stuttery when bitrates are high.

Separately it also confirm that the 3 column screen option will be confined to screens with a physical size bigger or equal to 4.5 inches, excluding the Nokia Lumia 520 and 620 for example.

  1. hi , I have NL520 and I am able to move my apps to my sd card and its a 4GB class 4 ! HOW COME ?
    And about the 3 c0lumn I have it!

  2. Ohh shit, I have a Lumia 520 :(

    But, I Hame a MicroSD 64GB Class 10 :)

  3. Its ok, i dont care with 3 row for 520 / 620
    what i care is when the update come xD

    and the performance after update , thats what i care

  4. Nothing to be surprised. It was expected. Games and large apps use a huge amount of resources dynamically (not the way videos and songs do with a single file), only internal memory can grant such access unless the memory card is really fast enough. Even with class 6 or 10, I’ve doubts if it’ll work perfectly.

  5. Its really a bad news!! but can we use the 16gb ultra c-10!!! p
