Notsure Android Storage

Hello Everyone, this is my first post & I hope I'm providing new info/support to the community.
Well, I got this Lenovo Tablet (A2107-f) which has been good for its price, but I think it has an issue that interferes with user experience, it has no enough storage capacity, supposly it allows to use external memmory for installing everything but here is something kinda confusing; it says USB Storage or SD Storage, but I don't know which is internal memory and which is the other one, it already got full althought it has all the apps moved to the external memory, I can't update any app, some apps like Play Store Services keep crashing and so on...
Any real solution? I think this "storage dilemma" is one the things that really suck on these low cost android devices

First, not all apps can run from the external SD card.

Second, even those that can be moved still have to have a link in internal storage (where the computer expects to find them) pointing to where they are, And apps that store their data on internal storage will keep doing so, even if the app is moved to external storage.

Consider the external SD card as a place to keep files. Apps and their data go on internal storage, so buy a device with enough internal storage for your needs.

("USB storage" would be a flash drive or other USB drive that you plug into the USB port.)

Thanks for your answer, I need to find out what's the difference between "USB storage" and "SD storage" (I don't know if it appears this way when ypu have your tablet in English)

I ran out of storage space long ago on my device. I tried to sideload some app updates using AppSharer from my Galaxy Note 2 but that didn't work either. Got like 30 apps wanting to be updated, but there's not enough storage on the device. I contacted Lenovo technical support and they said it's "by design". See Lenovo Ideapad 2107a-h storage issues
