Can I use my sd card to extend my phones internal memory

Recommended Posts

My phone is going strong but I often run out of internal memory. 

I'm unable to move apps to the phones sd card.

I've read you can extend the internal memory using the sd card but this isn't an option. I can only see an option to format the card as a portable device. 

Phone is in unrooted and runs on 6.01

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

There's plenty of tutorials like this one https://forum.xda-developers.com/idol-3/general/make-sd-card-semi-adopted-t3399510

Your SD will be formated so backup to pc before you start.

Just make sure you use the disk returned by "adb shell sm list-disks adoptable" not the one actually posted.

I'm using mixed 50 (half in,half ext).
