    I have a question regarding transferring data to SD card on Samsung Galaxy A01 and Samsung Galaxy A10s.

    Any idea how can I move applications on these phones from internal storage to my SD card, apps like Snapchat or Instagram for example?

    I also have Samsung Galaxy J mini Prime and I have no problems moving apps like telegram, snapchat, Instagram to my external storage. I cannot figure out how I can do the same on the A10s and A01 phones...Or is there no such option ?

    galaxy 01? not sure what that is.

    the thing is you can't pick and choose apps to move to the sd card. you can move parts of the apps provided the apps have that feature. other wise you will have reformat your sd card as internal.

    but this means that everything will get moved to the sd card. this also will increase wear and tear on your card as well. since everything will be now on the card, the card will have to read and write for a lot of processes which in turn will wear out the card faster......so be careful.

    the other issues is that you can't use the card as an sd card. you can't take it out and put it in your pc for file transfer. you card will be encrypted to your phone that only your phone can read.

    if you are having storage issues, make sure that next time you upgrade you get a better phone with more storage;)

    1. Tap the Launcher button to open the App Drawer and display a list of apps installed on your device.
    2. Go to Settings. Select Application Manager or Applications. A list of apps available on your device will then show up in alphabetical order.
    3. Go over the list of apps and select the one you wish to move. At this point, you will be presented with actions and details about the app.
    4. Press the Move to SD Card button. If the button is already grayed out, then it only means the app cannot be transferred. If the Move to Device Storage is there instead of the Move to SD Card button, then the app is already saved on the SD card.
    5. Follow any instructions that appear. Wait until your device finishes moving the app.
    6. Repeat steps 1 to 6 to move other apps from your device’s storage to an SD card.
