exFAT can be used by modern Android devices (and other devices like digital
cameras) that support 32+ GB cards. AFAIK brand-name microSD cards larger than
32 GB are always pre-formatted as exFAT.

exFAT can be read and written to by all modern OSes:

- FreeBSD with the sysutils/fuse-exfat package
- Linux with the exFAT FUSE driver, and in the mainline kernel since 5.4
- Mac OS X since 10.6.5
- Microsoft Windows since Vista SP1
