For microSD-HC or XC, 32 or 64GB,
should I format it as Fat32 or exFAT format so that Android phone can recognize it?

Mine (64GB Sandisk extreme plus) are formatted exFat in the device I am using them for. Just put it in and format it in the phone. That way you can be sure it will be read in the phone as well....

I always make it a point to format an sd card in whatever device I'm using it in.

If you wish to move large files like apps to the SD card then use exFAT & don't choose default file size but the largest option from the list. If you just want to move music & pictures then FAT32 is OK.
I use exFAT & have moved apps over 600Mb to the SD card.
