    Tried plugging in a micro sd card from another Android phone formatted in EXFat but the Razer phone report unsupported and asks to reformat it. So went ahead then ejected it from the phone into my PC and see it is formatted as FAT32. This is a huge problem as it means I cannot save files >4Gb onto the card.
    Is there any plans to add EXFat support for micro sdcards?

    i'll check mine when i get home and see the format its in. I know i had a hell of a time to even get the sd to format and read on mine. so far with using google photos i hadnt used it much but for some reason i cant find it in my podcast app to write to it rather than internally.
  3. Anyone tried this? I just ran into the 4GB limit as well and it would be nice to have a choice of a file system that could support large files. You would think such a great phone could handle another file system than Fat32...

    This is ridiculous, Razer. For a flag ship phone with great multimedia capability and performance, this is a silly oversight. Flagship phones from other companies support exFAT so there is no excuse. For a phone aimed for gaming, not being able to store 4GB+ files seriously hampers is.

    In this day and age, micro SD cards larger than 32GB all come in exFAT. Still using such an old file system that have a 4GB max file size restrictions is ridiculous.

    Saying your microSD support is up to 2TB is a bit misleading. It should have said “Max 2TB *individual files larger than 4GB are not supported” under microSD support.

    Please add support for exFAT in an update! Otherwise it’s still lagging behind phones like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and many other brands!
