I was told by Apple (because the SSD was working on Mac, then after adding 200gb of holiday photos and videos it wasn't being recognised) to format the drive to APFS.
So I did, works fine now!
But it now no longer works on my Android phone. So what on Earth can I do? Ex-fat seems to mess up with Mac Ventura 13.5, for some reason the SSD was showing as "master boot record" when it's never touched a windows PC until yesterday just to transfer files to a spare HDD. It was working on my android with SD card transfers for weeks away, and on my Mac before. Then it just worked on my phone and Windows PC. The Mac recognised it but couldn't use it as storage, and it only showed in Disk Utility.

APFS is an apple proprietary format and will not work with Windows or Android. ExFAT should work with all 3 OSes.
If there is an issue with ExFAT on Mac, then best to try the Apple forum.
