hero5 download to android phone sd card - is it possible

Can you download video files via wifi direct to android phone sd card rather than the phone's installed memory. Cant find a way either in phone settings (Samsung J7) or hero5 settings (gopro app)

Thanks for that - Any suggestions for capturing / storing video data on a prolonged isolated trip . I think I'm heading down the path of carrying a few Microsd cards and transferring data once back home. Dont want to carry a laptop for power and weight restrictions.

If you think you will need several SD cards for your trip, you might get more use out of a GNARBOX to save your media. It's pricey, but instead of buying four SD cards, you can get this and have more functionality. You can use it not only for storage but also for editing.
