I had this problem and found that some apps can be moved to the SD card, but for me many could not. I gained a lot of space by moving or deleting photos from internal memory and setting the camera to use the SD card for storage.

Much easier to move storage (photos being the most common). Typically you can set the camera to save to SD card.

Some apps can be moved to SD card but a lot can't. If you are bumping up against the limits this is a temporary solution.

Really 32GB is really the new base standard as apps get bigger and more numerous.

Thanks, everyone - I think my best option is to update the phone. This old Galaxy S5 still works, I get a full day out of the battery and charge it every morning so I hate getting rid of it but I might just have to bite the bullet and upgrade.

Samsung way back at the S4 model timeline modified their
OS to limit what can be saved and run from external storage. Some of the other major phone manufactures/carriers followed suite, too.

Most Android flavors since the S4 era have these ext storage limitations-if the phone was acquired from a major phone carrier.

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.


I use the all-in-one tool box myself. What Dutch said.


Home is where I park it.

Remove the apps you don't need. Some of the apps can't be removed, but can be desactivated, cache cleared.
Also when installing new app - and when the memory is full - you will be asked to install on the SD card (hope so). Problem with Android, every manufacturer has its own way of doing thing.

My sentiments exactly, I have been a Google apps fan from their beginning. Pixels do not have all the unwanted apps on top of Android.
