Why does my phone recognize my microSD card, but then still says 'storage space running out'?

I just bought a new 16GB microSD card from Samsung for my Samsung Galaxy S4. I put it in my phone and it is recognized and says I have 13.61GB available. However, when I go to download an app it says I have insufficient storage space, I have looked all over the internet and I have even tried 'move to SD card' on some apps, what should I do?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5 and bought a 32GB Samsung microSD card, put it in my phone (according to the directions I found on several websites) and my phone does nothing. It doesn't seem to even read that there has been a microSD card inserted?

A couple of weeks ago I put a ScanDisk microSD card (16GB), it must have read it because it said card is unrecognizable. that's why I bought the new one. I thought if I got a Samsung card it "would" recognize it this time, but now its even worse.

Please help!!! this microSD card is not even 3 months old!. I have tried: I followed your directions here to re-format the card. I think it was caused by: I have no idea what caused this problem.
