For many people 64gb cards work a treat on others the phone wont detect the card.
It depends on your current Rom and on the brand of your Micro SD card (For example i heard that Sandisk 64 Micro SD card work with XSP )
If I helped spam that "Thanks" button

Phone :Xperia SP
Android Version : 4.3
Kernel:Stock .266 Kernel with CWM rootable by Doomlord

It depends on the card, a friend of mine had 64 gb sandisk on his xperia sp, and worked fine, i tried to put it on my xperia sp, and it didnt recognize it

From what i've seen so far i would trust a Sandisk 64GB card to do the job.

If it recognizes your card there it should be no problem but after one point its just a game of chances.But i think if you partition the card to 32 and 32 gb partitions it should recongize it even if it does not when its not partitioned. (I just thought that never tried it )
