How to Change Android Device Storage Memory

Sometimes you wonder why you have packed apps on your device storage when you’re practically aware that you have a new SD Card which you bought and inserted into your Android Phone. If you’re able to notice you’ll notice that your storage memory chunks up when the SD Card is still empty. This leads to your device not be able to function as active as it has been before. I have my methods and I advise you to follow the method if you want to be able to change Android device storage memory.

Storage memory is very important to Android Phones, especially when it has large space storage to contain big files which are important for your use. Once you take this process, you’re sure trying to create more space on your SD Card and your device. So in order to perform this task more perfectly, you just need to follow the guideline I’ve provided here on this site to change Android device storage memory.

Steps to Change Android Device Storage Memory

Follow the steps below to change android device storage memory.

In order to perform this site, you need to have an SD Card inserted in your Android device. If you’re making use of only the Phone storage memory, there’s no need for you to take this step as you have nowhere to move it to.

  1. The first step you need to take is to locate the Settings of your device on your home screen and then tap on it.
  2. The next step is to scroll down and locate “Storage and Memory” and then tap on it.
  3. Once you’ve done that, you’ll see the details of your total space on the device and the removable SD card. Look down below; you’ll see “Set the default memory” option. If you newly inserted an SD Card on the device for the first time you’ll see that the default memory is the Phone memory.
  4. You have to tap on that default memory option where you’ll see the two options (SD card and Mobile storage), then tap on SD card in order to change the storage memory location.

That’s just how it’s done!

Although, having set your default memory, there’s still a chance that your apps are running through your phone storage. What I mean is that your apps data are saved on your phone storage. You can still move the apps to your newly inserted SD card if you want to. The steps to do that will be provided for you below.

How to Move your Apps to SD card

The steps are listed for you below:

  1. The first thing to do is to locate the settings of your Android device on your home screen and tap on it.
  2. Once it’s open, you then have to scroll down and locate “Apps” in your settings and tap on it.
  3. Here you’ll see varieties of installed apps on your device. You’ll then have to select them bit by bit.
  4. Then tap on the one you want to move.
  5. Then look down where you’ll see an option “Move to SD card” and then tap on it. The app will then be moved to your SD card.

Note: Should reverse be the case, you’ll see “Move to Data Storage” if you don’t want It to be on your SD card. With just one tap on it, the app will be moved to that location.
