Edited by Train Wreck, Eng, VisiHow

Remove Memory Card for Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 Removing a microSD card from your Samsung Galaxy Tab S2 can sometimes be a bit challenging. It can also be a little confusing. The reason for this is that there are three holes right in a line. Each one of them has a different function and only one holds your memory card. It's a little bit like having to choose between door number one, door number two, to a number three. Fortunately it's not really that difficult.

In this case you want door number two, or the middle door area. What we are going to show you in this tutorial is how to remove your microSD card. We recommend that you have a microSD card adapter on hand too, as this will help prevent any damage or loss to the microSD card itself. We also recommend the use of a SIM card removal tool because using a paperclip, while it works, is a bit primitive and could cause you to damage your Tab S2.
