Insert or Remove the MicroSD Card in the Galaxy S7 Edge

Your Galaxy S7 edge lets you use a microSD, microSDHC, or microSDXC card to expand memory space. This secure digital card lets you exchange pictures, music, and data with microSD compatible devices. Learn how to insert or remove the microSD card below.

If you have misplaced your ejector tool, don't worry! You can use a paper clip.

Insert the MicroSD Card

  1. Insert the ejector tool (included) into the hole in the SIM and microSD card tray on the top of your phone, as shown below. When the tray pops out, pull it out.

    Be careful not to insert the ejector tool into the microphone hole which is also located on top of your phone.

  2. Carefully place the microSD card into the larger opening in the tray and insert the tray.

    The SIM card is in the smaller opening, lower on the tray.

SD Card Recommendations

MicroSD Card Classes:

  • MicroSD cards have capacity up to 2GB.

  • MicroSDHC (High Capacity) cards offer capacity up to 32GB.

  • MicroSDXC (extended Capacity) cards have capacity from over 32GB and up to 2TB, currently.

  • Each type of card has a speed rating of 2, 4, 6, 8, or 10, from slowest to fastest. 

While you can use any class of microSD card in your phone, the microSDXC card is recommended for high-resolution video recording due to its large storage capacity and high-speed read/write capability.

For less demanding use, such as still photography, regular microSD or microSDHC cards will be sufficient.
