The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge do not come with a micro SD card slot. If you have data from an old phone or SD card that you want to transfer to the S6, this might be a problem for you. Fortunately, you can still manage to connect a micro SD card to the Galaxy S6 if you have the correct setup. Here’s how.
If you don’t have one already, you’ll need an adapter so that you can connect an SD card to the micro-USB port on the bottom of the S6. Personally, I like the Inateck Multi Adapter, because it allows you to connect a USB drive, keyboard, or mouse as well as a micro SD card to an Android device.
- Slide the micro SD card into the SD(HC) slot on the adapter. The card is a bit tricky to insert, but it works.
- Connect the adapter to the micro-USB port on the bottom of the Galaxy S6.
- From the Home screen, select “Apps”, then select “Tools” > “My Files“.
- From “My Files“, you will have a selection for “USB Storage A“. Select it and you can now view the files on the SD card and transfer them to storage on the device if desired.
