Insert or Remove the MicroSD Card for Galaxy Tab E

When you have an endless collection of videos of your dog, you may need a little more space. Give man’s best friend the tribute he or she deserves by expanding your tablet’s memory space. Galaxy Tab E lets you use a microSD, microSDHC, or a microSDXC card to expand storage. This secure digital card lets you exchange pictures, music, and data with microSD compatible devices. More space means Fido will always be the star of the show. Just watch out for the pup-arazzi.

The available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider and software version.

SD Card Recommendations

Most people aren't aware that there are multiple classes of microSD cards. We all know the storage capacity varies, but that's not the only thing that makes them different. They also have other features that we’ll walk you through. You learn something new every day! Learn more about the different types here.

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 tablet, the microSDXC card is recommended for high-resolution video recording, due to its large storage capacity and high-speed read and write capability.

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