Edited by Train Wreck, Eng, VisiHow

Anyone who has ever purchased a new microSD card for their phone or Tablet knows how difficult it can sometimes be to figure out how to put it in. To help you with that we are going to show you how to insert a microSD card into your Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. The process itself is relatively simple. The only things you will need are a microSD card, as SIM card removal tool or a paperclip, and your Samsung Galaxy Tab S2. In the photo below we have all three of these items in the same picture.

    When you are finished you will have a teeny tiny little microSD card
    .
    That little tiny microSD card is about the size of an average person's fingernail or thumbnail. If you have something larger than this, you have the wrong size microSD card.

    The next thing we will do is locate our SIM card removal tool

Insert the Memory Card

  1. 1
    Once the microSD card has been removed, turn the microSD card tray over, and then place your microSD card into it
    .
    This is done so the glass screen of the tablet will be facing you when you flip it back over, and you will be able to quickly and easily slide in the microSD card.
