Can I switch a SIM card from one device to another?

I've just purchased a new Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and I was wondering if I could switch the SIM card from my old HTC Desire 626s into it?

Hi there, @ashlyn! The SIM card is only used so you can connect to the 4G LTE network, and every phone model has its own type of SIM card. Therefore, the SIM card on an HTC Desire can only be used on the same type of phone. There are some cases where different models use the same type of SIM card but it's very uncommon.
