Moto G 4G question #2: microSD limit?

I've seen it noted that the Moto G 4G can take microSD "up to 32GB". Does that mean it isn't compatible with 64GB or even 128GB?

Any card bigger than 32GB is formatted as exFAT instead of FAT32, so it's the exFAT file system that isn't supported.
You can use a tool like http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm to format a bigger card to FAT32 which will then work on any Android.

"Moto E and G LTE natively support SDHC (FAT32) formatted SD cards. Larger cards will need to be reformatted."
