Where are my photos and videos stored on my Galaxy Tab S2, and how do I move them?

Last Update Date : Apr 13. 2018

Media Storage

By default, your captured pictures and videos are stored on your device's internal memory. When microSD card is inserted the default storage location will be changed automatically to the SD card. However, burst shots and pictures taken using some downloaded camera modes will still be saved to the device storage.

 

You can save room on your device by moving pictures, videos, and other files to your microSD™ card.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
