Re: Xperia XZ sd card capacity

Hi @Thorteval,


The maximum size of a microSD card you can use with your Xperia XZ is 256 GB. For full the specifications of Xperia XZ you can check out the following link.


I hope this answers your question and let me know if there is anything else you are wondering about.

Re: Xperia XZ sd card capacity

I just bought a 400gb micro sd card and installed it in my Xperia XZ.  It is recognized immediately and I have no problem using it. 


I don't know why Sony Staff gave you  the wrong information.  The main reason that I don't want to buy any Iphone is that you cannot install micro sd card.  I listen to music on my cell phone and I have more than 400 gb of mp3 music.  So, it is important that I can expand the capacity of my cell phone with a micro sd card. 


Hopefully Sony updates their information and tell their Staff the right information.

Re: Xperia XZ sd card capacity


The information stated by Sony is still correct, this is the maximum capacity of SD cards tested and provided no loss in functionality or decrease in performance. Theoretically, bigger capacity SD cards will work (as in your case), but performance is not guaranteed.
