Samsung Galaxy S5: How to Insert or Remove a Micro SD card

Samsung Galaxy S5 allows you to extend your storage by providing you an external card slot that can be used to place a microSD card of up to 128GB capacity. It's quite useful since you can use your microSD card to keep the internal storage has free space enough(e.g: by moving app to microSD card, by setting this card as the default storage in some apps, etc.) so that your phone can work properly and doesn't encounter any issue caused by low internal storage.

  3. Pull out the battery from its place with your thumb or finger using the small notch at the bottom side of the battery socket.
  4. Insert the microSD card with the gold contacts in the card facing downwards to the microSD card slot.
