LG G Stylo Forum

Support Expandable storage (Micro SD) limit

I have been seeing inconsistent amounts for the storage limit on the stylo. Currently on both the metro pcs and tmobile websites it says it has Up to 32GB Expandable Memory. On literally every review before it came out it says 128GB or up to 2TB. Whats strange is I also saw a review where they had a screen shot of tmobiles first specs on it when it said up to 128GB or 2TB. Has anyone one tried to put any micro sd card on it above 32GB like the 64 or 128. If so let me know. Thats my only deciding factor for this phone.

on a side note not sure what prefix this would be considered....

I have Boost Mobile version. I have not Activated it yet - waiting until end of month to leave Virgin Mobile. I just bought a 32BG microSD online so I hope it works. The Boost site says it's version supports up to 32GB. I notice the T-Mobile and MetroPCS versions have higher specs for their versions of the phone like 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and a 12MP camera, etc. Point is, there is different versions of this phone dependent on the carrier it is for.

with the metro version I'm using a 32gb card. on xda some people are saying they are using 64gb cards.

I'm using a 64 gig card in my metro stylo with no problems
#6 AP2FTW, Jun 13, 2015
The reason they state that cards only up to 32gb are supported us because cards larger than that come formatted to ntfs format by default, which Android (by default) can't read. All you need to do is format the larger card to fat and it should work no problems

i can confirm as well about 64GB cards supported on this device, probably support even up to 128GB but i don't have a 128gb card so i can't say it does
#8 DrakenFX, Jun 13, 2015
you guys answered me on xda already lol thanks
#9 Muteki Chojin, Jun 13, 2015
lol i thought the question looked familiar...i did forget to mention that important info that lordvincent posted though, the card must be formatted as fat 32 for the phone to read it
#10 AP2FTW, Jun 13, 2015
not necessary when the SDCARD is inserted the phone will show a message about need to be format so no need to use PC to reformat the sdcard.
#11 DrakenFX, Jun 13, 2015
ok cool I'm gonna buy a 128gb soon then. Im wondering if that will work with my f6.
#12 Muteki Chojin, Jun 14, 2015
i haven't heard about Stylo been compatible with 128gb sdcards so take that in consideration if you buy it from a local store that will be a better idea just in case doesn't work and need to be return or exchange for a 64gb sdcard, just my 2 cents

i'm using 64 GB on my Boost Stylo...

Yes it longest your doing the sd.hack 64ext4/64fat32
#16 Krlypumaa, Jun 24, 2015
For practical purposes there is no sd size detect limit nowadays.
If a phone can handle 32, it can do larger sizes.
This should no longer be a worry, esp. with the top brands.
If you think I'm wrong feel free to put me in my place.

i have a stylo on tmobile using a 64 gb and it works fine, on my equipment box it says it take up to 128
#18 Sumo210, Jul 3, 2015
I've got a 128 GB on the way,ETA 7/14/15:

I'll post my findings regarding formatting/compatibility/etc. at that time.

ThePNY 128 GB Card just arrived:
I installed the card,a pop-up appeared stating the card was either blank or has an unsupported file system.
Upon tapping on the pop-up,I was given the option to format the card.
Phone successfully formatted the card,stating 119GB of storage is available.

This works for me,I'll probably get a couple more from the same seller (B&H VIDEO/PHOTO).

For those who may prefer Sandisk,their most current/updated version is on sale today (7-14-15) @ AMAZON for $59.99 +tax & shipping.

I'm still debating which to get. You guys posted some good options. My current one is a samsung that I've had for about 5yrs now and still good. So I may be inclined to get this one on sale...
