Can I test my GoPro Hero5 Black with ordinary sd card?

Hi guys,
I was wondering if I can test GoPro Hero5 Black with ordinary sd card from my smartphone. I am expecting my first ever GoPro to arrive tomorrow and it is second hand, that is why I want to test it (if works properly) first before I buying expensive sd card.

 

Thank you!

You should have purchased a sdxc card, for me I  would have gotten a PNY Elite or Samsung eveo plus  both are   the lowest priced cards over here.  .  ANd when the camera arrived you then can test it out,   knowing you want it to work?

 

Just turning on the camera will show it working, you can use your card  use the photo or lower frame rate and lower setting to test it out. if it buffers andstops, you will then need to listen to  Ryan
