Insert or Remove the MicroSD Card for Galaxy S8 Active

Your phone lets you use a microSD, microSDHC, or a microSDXC 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

  1. Insert the removal tool into the hole on the SIM/microSD card tray, and then push until the tray pops out.

  2. Place the microSD card on the top of the tray and then insert the SIM/microSD card tray back into the slot.

    The SIM card slot is the lower, smaller opening.

Remove the microSD Card

You must unmount the microSD card before removing it.

  1. Navigate to Apps > Settings.

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

  3. Touch More Options.

  4. Touch Storage settings.

  5. Touch Unmount.

  6. Insert the removal tool into the hole on the SIM/microSD card tray, and then push until the tray pops out.

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

  7. Remove the microSD card from the tray and then insert the SIM/microSD tray back into the slot.

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.

  • 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 cards 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.
