Blade zte v7 lite SD card problems please help

Hi everyone

I have a blade zte v7 lite, and have an external memory card for it. I've formatted it and used the phones storage settings to make it only work with this device so it is ready to go, but I can't seem to set it as my default storage.

For some reason the only option available to select is internal storage.

I can migrate apps there one by one, so I know it recognises it and it works, but I don't know what to do! I'm out of space and patience.

Please help, many thanks.

Android, the versions I use do not have such a setting.

There are now some million discussions about Android, SD cards, space and such.

Here I don't see such a setting on the half dozen Androids I have at my office desk (we work on apps.)

I think I must keep this short given all the priors. Last year I had a minimum spec for an Android phone that I would accept. It was 1GB RAM and 8GB internal. Now with 89USD phones with 2GB RAM and 16GB internal space that is now my min standard.

Rooting to change settings?

Yeah, I mean does this mean I will have to root my device to get it to work?

Can you share an article on this?

I have a few rooted devices and have yet to see the setting you seem to be telling me "exists."

Remember I'm not talking about any hack. Just plain old android. Without mind numbing forays into the file system or such.

Not on this phone...

On my Samsung I could set my SD card as default storage, and it should in theory be possible on zte. I just googled it....will post a link later.

I think you should go with Samsung then.

We only have a few Sams and not one had this feature. It must be on some but not all models.
