Moving SD card to new phone

I just replaced my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with a Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.  Using Google, I've moved over everything that I want - pictures, contacts, etc.  I want to move the SD card from the Note 3 to the S7 Edge for storage purposes.  Is there anything that I need to do before removing the SD card from the Note 3 or when installing in the Edge?  Will I be bringing over anything from the Note 3 that I might not want (and should delete off the SD card while still in the Note 3)?  Thanks.

Ensure the Note 3 is turned off before removing the SD card.  Once you place the SD card in the S7 Edge, you may want to format it to ensure it works correctly; it may work fine without formatting, but if there's info. on the SD card you don't want/need on the S7 Edge, formatting will remove the files.

If you move it over, whatever is on it will move too. If you don't want that stuff on the new device simply delete it.
