I'm using a Moto Z2 Force running Android 7.1.1 with a 128 GB microSD card installed. I wanna upgrade to a 400 GB card. Would I have to re-grant microSD access app permissions for the new card, or do those permissions cover any card inserted into the phone?


The permissions should cover any SD card.

But your phone's max SD size is 256 GB, see http://www.gsmarena.com/motorola_moto_z2_force-8693.php

  • Thanks, you were right about the permissions. However, generally speaking phones with microSD slots support cards of any size. The 400 GB card is working just fine for me. – jdrch Oct 9 '17 at 12:33
  • Really? didn't know that! – JPT Oct 10 '17 at 12:50
  • Yeah it's uncommon knowledge. I'm not sure why OEMs listed size limits in specs; maybe it's for power draw reasons. – jdrch Oct 10 '17 at 20:18
