Does the Samsung Galaxy S7 have expandable memory?


Yes, the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge both come with a Micro SD card slot!

That allows you to augment the phone’s on-board storage with up to 200GB of additional space, leaving plenty of room for apps, videos, games and photos. You can pick up a Micro SD card here:

samsung-galaxy-sA potted history of Galaxy S storage

The very first Galaxy S phone came with a micro SD slot, which was a standard feature at the time among Android smartphones. The feature was retained all the way until the Galaxy S6, which traded the characteristic plastic back for a metal unibody.

However, a significant backlash from fans prompted Samsung to add the feature back in for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, via a combined Micro SD and SIM slot at the top of the phone.

It’s even possible (with some clever hacking) to have both two SIM cards and a micro SD card installed at once… but we don’t recommend it, unless you’re willing to take some liberties with your phone’s warranty.

We’ve recommended some of our favourite Micro SD cards for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. Spoiler alert: our absolute favourite is the Samsung 128GB Evo+, which offers a nice tradeoff between performance, capacity and value.
