    Will this work in the S7 Edge?

    I am in the boat now with the Note 7, that I know it is inevitable that I will be switching. I got the 256GB SD card with the promo, but I read that the S7 only holds 200GB unless it was a samsung brand card.

    Does anybody have experience with this?

    Sounds Good.

    Does it show up *** 256 or just 200?

    Oddly mine shows as 238gb. Specifically it's sitting at 38.18gb / 238gb under "Storage usage".

    It's odd - the official specs say it supports 256gb. Maybe it's because my card was previously formatted in my Note 7. If I feel adventurous and have the time I may pull it out, back it up and try formatting it in the S7e and see if that makes it show the full 256gb. It is the Samsung one btw.

    No need. The 238gb is correct. The 256gb falls under the decimal definition where 1gb = 1,000,000,000 bytes. The 238gb falls under the binary definition where 1gb = 1,073,741,824 bytes and that's how computers and your phone read it.

    Theoretically, the S7/S7 edge can read up to 2 TB cards. However, no 2 TB cards exist for commercial sale yet.

    So do we use it to move apps or just store media?

    Put a 400 GB all the way back into a Galaxy S5 with the 400 GB Samsung SD card that I had previously set up with a Samsung Tab S3. S5 showed 366 GB available and the videos installed previously on the Tab S3 were working correctly. The spec for the Galaxy S5 is a maximum of 128 GB for the SD card.

    I did find a problem with cut and paste from my PC to the S5 phone through the USB cable. The S5 would not let me copy files to the SD card after I reached 137 GB on the SD card. I attribute this to some sort of system setting on the phone. However, if I removed the SD card and attached it directly to My PC, then I could copy whatever I liked. My test was 74 video files with a total of 213 GB. With the SD card back in the phone, I could see all files through Computer app and play them with the built-in Video app or VLC.

    Did you experience any kind of lack/slow actions on your phone. I have a S7Edge where i have stored all my pics, apps, musik etc. on a 32GB Kingston SD Card. When im opening from sleep mode it is locking for 3-5 sec. Perhaps it is because its a Kingston SD
