I have a Sony Experia Z3 phone and the internal storage is almost full so I would like to use my 32Gb Class 10 SD card as internal storage. According to numerous YouTube videos I've seen this is a simple process (basically, backup SD card and then format it as internal storage). Problem is that I only get the option to format as portable storage. Phone is using Android 6.0.1. The phone is not rooted.
Thanks for the prompt reply. You're right, it isn't the answer I wanted but it is the answer I was sort of expecting. I was wondering whether it was Virgin who disabled this feature.
It's a pity that Sony don't let their users decide whether a feature is fast enough or not. Slower functionality is better than no functionality at all. Very disappointing. I have already pruned back my internal storage by putting storing as much as I can on the SD card but I am now almost at the stage where I can't install a new app unless I ditch a current one.
I hear you regarding having the element of choice on this one.
If users were made aware there potentially could be a performance drop then they could choose whether to proceed or not.
Maybe one day in a future iteration of android, it could make a return, who knows.
While on the subject of internal storage, I found with my old Sony Z2 that I could uninstall updates for some pre-installed apps that I would never need, and disabled them, I clawed back some of the memory that these were taking up.
Of course disabling anything comes with a warning about things misbehaving, but it is reversible if ever needed.
