What did these used to be called? Sidekick, I think and all the teeny boppers had them.
That is about all that can use them now.
Often there are good reasons for not putting an app on the SD card. For example, anything you expect to still function when you have the phone plugged in to a PC with the card mounted as a drive... If we could move every app to the card we'd have endless threads about "my <whatever> app refuses to work when plugged in!"
I'm not sure how Windows phones work, but between how iPhones and Androids work with storage, I'll take an Android any day.
With Android, you have - depending on model - relatively limited internal storage, and easily expandable external storage via micro SD card. Many apps can be moved to this card. Quite frankly, for a "grown up", there is more than enough internal storage for apps. You only start running out of room when you 1) fail to learn how to move apps to the SD card when they can be or 2) you're installing quite a few large apps that cannot be moved. Typically the biggest apps are the games, which don't exactly fit into the "grown up" category.
With the iPhone, you have the internal memory you bought the phone with, end of story. If you need to carry lots of files with you and are out of room, you're out of luck; there is no option to buy a larger SD card.
In any case, you're complaining about the OS when you bought what was a mid-line model phone at best when it was introduced. Blaming the OS is like blaming the concept of the internal combustion engine because the Fiesta you bought only has 120 horsepower.
