Insert and Remove a MicroSD Card on Your Galaxy Tab S3 (Verizon)
Your tablet 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.
The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
Insert the microSD Card
Insert the ejector tool (included with your tablet) into the hole in the SIM and microSD card tray on the side of your tablet, as shown above. When the tray pops out, pull it out of the tablet.
Be careful not to insert the ejector tool into the microphone hole also on the side of your tablet.
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.
Now you can move your apps to free up space!
Remove the microSD Card
You must unmount the microSD card before removing it.
Navigate to Apps > Settings.
Touch Search, and then search for and select Storage.
Touch UNMOUNT next to SD card to safely unmount the microSD card.
Insert the ejector tool into the hole in the SIM and microSD card tray on the side of your tablet, as shown above. When the tray pops out, pull it out of the tablet.
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 tablet, 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.
