512gb sd card in Galaxy S8?

Hi all,

I still have my much loved Galaxy S8 and it has a 256GB micro sd card in it.

I know officially that's the biggest size that would work or be supported but considered that may have just been the biggest size available to test at the time the phone came out.

Theory might suggest that as the format of a 512gb is much the same it's a capacity difference and that it would work?

I just don't want to buy a 512gb card if it has definitely been tried and confirmed that it definitely wouldn't work.

Does anyone know or has tried it?

Hi the answer to your question is no. I had an s8 and it does not support this amount of storage due to it's battery failing due to capacity. Therefor do not try to put the phone outside of its limits. It isn't safe.

Thanks Thomasalive07, sorry only just saw your reply. Best not to risk it as my battery is probably very poor now and my phone is literally falling apart too - the power button has now fallen out as well.

Yep 😀 no idea where it fell out so have had to use a pin or something if the battery ever dies.
