Is there a difference between micro SD and micro SDHC for my phone?

I’ve been looking at memory cards, but I can’t understand why some of them are micro SD and some are micro SDHC. What’s the difference?

The HC stands for high capacity. Standard SD cards tend to be up to 4GB in storage. Some older devices can't understand the revised access structure in SDHC. I could go on but in a word there is a difference.

MicroDSHC is a newer format, and not all phones are compatible with it. Check the specs of your phone to see if it's compatible before you buy one.

Basically: microSDHC are faster. If your phone takes microSDHC it'll probably cope ok with a plain microSD card. But if the phone is only specced for plain microSD, it won't deal with SDHC

Oh I see, I don't think my phone will accept the HC so there's no point spending the extra to get it
