No, the Photon only supports microSDHC, and like you said, the 64gb (also, anything over 32gb) is classified as microSDXC.

32gb + 16gb internal should be more than enough anyways, provided you use it wisely.

If you absolutely NEED that amount of space, some users were able to use the Photon as a USB host and attach an external USB flash stick using a special USB-F-MicroUSB-M

I've seen a couple reports that they work fine on the Photon, but more that they don't. And the Droid4 and Bionic are reported to work.

The current 64GB cards are generally backwards compatible with SDHC in a lot of devices.

I have a Sandisk 64 card - haven't tried it in my Photon, but it works fine in my Xoom and Cowon J3 MP3 player (linux).

So, I don't know for sure. (My Photon battery cover plastic clips won't take too many more removals or I'd try it)

Cool - good to know, thanks for the post.

I figured it would work fine in the Photon since it seems to work in about everything else with a SDHC 3.0 compatible slot.

And I got my spare battery cover via eBay today, so may try it soon.

- - and to "MooseV2" that said "no", please do your research in the future before making broad statements; TIA!

I have SanDisk Mobile Ultra 64Gb and so far, so good BUT.........I rarely have anything on it. I use ZumoCast to access all my music, photos, documents on my desktop at home? If Im doing a Server upgrade or something, I'll drag a few movies to card, but other than that, empty!

Everything I have read points to the 64GB working perfectly as long as you format it in the phone (FAT32)

Yea it works, I have a 64GB micro sd card. You will have to insert it and go to storage and reformat the sd card while its in the Photon and it will work. I get 60GB out of the 64GB
