    Hi all,
    I have a massive comic collection, and my old Ipad 2 (64gb) needs to be replaced.
    I don't want to dish out $1000+ for the 512 GB Ipad, so I am hoping I will be able to use a 400GB sd card into the Tab S3. (And buy it for black Friday)

    All documentation I can find shows it only goes up to 256GB.
    1. Has anyone tried it with a 400GB SD Card? If not, can any Android tablet use the 512GB sd card?
    2. Also, will apps be able to read from comics from the SD card and internal memory, and flip between the 2, all with no problems, behind the scenes? Or must I keep changing the app between SD card and internal memory to find files?

    According to an android authority link,
    it says "When it comes to handsets you may have noticed that some OEMs will says something like this, “expandable storage via microSD card up to 32GB.” what that probably means is that device has a SDHC compatible card reader. Technically any Android device which supports SDXC could advertise “expandable storage via microSD card up to 2TB.” But because 2TB microSD cards don’t exist (yet), most OEMs will say something like “expandable storage via microSD card up to 128GB” where the “128GB” bit could be a different capacity depending on when the device was released and what is the highest current microSD capacity that is commercially available."

    edit: changed 512gb to 400gb (the 400gb on amazon is microsd, the 500gb is sd... Id only be able to use the 400)

    Moved from the Galaxy Tab 10-inch forum (which was for the original Galaxy Tab) to the Tab S3 forum.

    While I haven't used the s3 or the 400GB card specifically, I have used devices with cards far larger than they advertised as compatible.
    Your quote explains the situation perfectly.
