Using a MicroSD™ Card with Your Galaxy Tab S3

Your device lets you use a microSD™, microSDHC, or micro SDXC card to expand memory space. This secure digital card lets you exchange pictures, music, and data with microSD™ compatible devices.

Insert the microSD™ Card

  1. Insert the ejector tool (included with your device) into the hole in the SIM and microSD™ card tray on the side of your device, as shown above. When the tray pops out, pull it out of the device.

    Be careful not to insert the ejector tool into the microphone hole also on the side of your device.

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

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

Remove the microSD™ Card

You must unmount the microSD™ card before removing it.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.

  2. Touch Search, then search for and select Storage.

  3. Touch View More.

  4. Touch Storage settings.

  5. Touch UNMOUNT next to SD card to safely unmount the microSD card.

  6. Insert the ejector tool into the hole in the SIM and microSD card tray on the side of your device, as shown above. When the tray pops out, pull it out of the device.

  7. Remove the microSD™ card from the tray and reinsert the tray.

SD Card Recommendations

While you can use any class of microSD™ cards in your device, 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.

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