Tips and Suggestions for choosing your SD card as default storage

  • Use the SD cards made by the manufacturer you trust
  • It is recommended to buy and use new SD cards occasionally because old and used cards tend to break or damage data.
  • Some apps may run correctly only from phone storage
  • If you have problems with any of these steps, ask a question for more help, or post in the comments section below.
