    Okay, most of you that know me know that I'm not stupid (or like REALLY stupid at least lol).

    But...

    How the hell do you move apps to the sd card on this phone lol.

    I'm guessing they do it the same way as the GS3 because the internal memory is mounted on the SD Card so when there's a sd card in it shows up but the micro sd card mount location is inside the internal memory.

    Does this mean we can't install to the sd card? I'm not familiar with the s3. I do know that there's no option to move apps to sdcard the normal way you would move downloaded apps.

    Did a little research on this, I get what ya mean now and you are right. We can't use our external sd for apps, we can use it for anything and everything else, but not apps lol. Sure am glad they gave us 5gb in that case.

    Doesn't work bro lol. I tried it, and others. Without root there's no way we are gonna find a way around not being able to install apps to the external sd.

    We need root to change the mount setting of the internal memory.

    I'm guessing this is an android lock down they added to make sure you buy the phone with the most internal memory (or when LG makes a better phone than the Motion for metro).........but 5gigs dedicated to only apps is more than enough room :D
