    SD card can be moved without issue - no formatting requied.

    If however, you setup the card as adoptable storage (extended device storage) in the DTEK50, then it's not portable.

    Right. If it is setup as adoptable storage, then it is encrypted to the phone (DTEK50 in this case) and you will need either a computer or a flash drive that supports USB OTG and can be plugged into the phone, and then you must use the File Manager in the phone to copy the data to the computer or flash drive. Once that is done, then you can remove the SD card and format it in the new phone and then copy the data back onto it.

    You should regularly back up the data on your SD card anyway, as they fail randomly and with no warning (Samsung and SanDisk are more reliable than other brands, but even they fail sometimes). If you don't use cloud sync, then making frequent manual backups is a must if you care about the data on your phone.
