I have been thinking about getting the Motorola G5 Plus but I want to USE a 256GB microsd card, instead of a 128GB microsd card.

But on the Official Moto G5 Plus website, it says that Motorola G5 Plus microSd card slot ONLY SUPPORTS 128GB microsd cards. So how do I know that when I get the Motorola G5 Plus, that it will support 256GB microsd cards?

Anybody that is in the same boat as me, please tell me any suggestions that you have made. I'm currently in the United States. So the Moto G5 Plus is the only official phone available in the G series

What's the doubt? Moto clearly says that the limit is 128... I don't get your question

I use a 200gb card in a moto e whose limit says 128g, might even be 64, don't remember. Those aren't always hard and fast rules.

Well they officially support up to 128gb but you should be able to use a 256gb without any problems

Hi,

SD limits announced by manufacturers are completly useless... only two causes can make the limit:

- The filesystem used: Any SD card of 64GB or more is "pre-formatted" with exFAT. This is because this is a requiment enforced by the SD Consortium. Then, if the device doesn't support exFAT, they announce supporting only 32GB in SD. But if you reformat the card with FAT32, then you can use 64,128 or more.

- The SD standard supported: original SD has a limit of 4GB, SDHC has a 32GB limit, and SDXC has a limit of 2TB (at time, no card with 2TB exists). Then if the device has support for SDXC (as the Moto G5 and the 99% of smartphones of today), ANY card be compatible... as all cards has less than 2TB.

That's all! The Linux kernel or the Android subsystem doesn't imposse any artifical limit to the SD slot.

True..but I think you are using more than 128Gb then your phone may get slow down.

I know I had a tablet one time that would not read anything over 64 gb so I formatted an 128 card into two 60gb partitions.
