Didn't want to disturb the Android vs. Apple topic so thought I's start my own - I've got a Samsung Galaxy S5 with 16 GB of memory, and an additional 16 GB microSD card installed. Is there any way I can move some of my installed apps from the internal memory to the SD card? The internal memory is close to full, but the SD card is almost empty, and I can increase the size of the SD card at will if I start to fill it up.

I have a Samsung J7 and on mine I go to 'settings' - 'appliations' - then I select the 'application' I want to move to the SD card and then I select 'storage' and if it can be moved to the SD card it will give you the choice. Keep in mind that not all app's can be moved to the SD card.
Hope this helps.

I have tried this and I gain minimal breathing space on storage. Start saving your money for a new phone.

One thing which can usually be moved easily are photos, Try moving them either to the sd card or the cloud and see if the phone then works better. If not,,,, as mentioned before, consider a newer phone with more storage.

If you need a phone you might want to look at the Samsung A51 or a Samsung 10. Our kids have the Samsung 10 and absolutely love it.I have not researched the difference between the 2 yet. A51 is a low priced(relatively) priced entry.

Samsung seems to have made 128G standard on a majority of their phones.

Open up the list of apps, open each app and it will show it being installed on internal memory. If it can be moved to the sd card it will show the option of moving it. I have found that most apps will only work on internal memory and cannot be moved to the sd card.

The "All-In-One" app has a tool that will locate all the apps that can be moved to the SD card with just a couple of taps. It's also handy for cleaning the cache and has a number of other useful tools.

Go to "storage" in your settings and look at what is taking up the space. You may find any number of things taking up a lot of space that you could delete or move. Virtually nothing gets saved on the SD card by default so you may need to tweak settings for photos, music, etc.
