Of course. But the funny thing is: You don't need to spend more money to get a 'good' card. You just have to realize how the SD card market works. There are brands that buy cheap NAND dies and questionable controllers on the spot markets, that invest in marketing a lot and sell you cheap/unreliable stuff for twice the price.

And there are just a few manufacturers where you get quality. And if you start to realize that a Pine64 or any other SBC is not a digital camera but some sort of a computer you also start to realize that the 'speed class' is mostly irrelevant when you buy cards. 

Pine64 is limited to ~22/23 MB/s sequential speed anyway (as most other Allwinner SBC) and the most important performance factor is random I/O. So take care that you choose cards that show high random I/O performance especially with small record sizes that are from one of the few manufacturers that build their retail products from both their own NAND chips and own controllers: http://forum.armbian.com/index.php/topic...rformance/

And directly after purchase always check the card. There is no alternative to it since you never know what you bought (see above). It's easy and worth the efforts.
