Use SD card as internal storage

    Before I spend a bundle on a new phone, I want to try to use an SD card as internal storage. I understand I need to root my device first. Is that correct? I have no fear of rooting. I mean if I mess it up, I'll just get a new rooted, phone. But I really like this one and I hate to waste money.

    No, you don't need to root in order to use the SD card as internal storage: that's been a standard feature of Android since Version 6.0.

    However, before you get too excited not all phones offer it. Some manufacturers specifically remove it from some of their phones. It's often the flagship models they remove it from, but if it's something you want you should check whether the specific model offers the feature (which is a question I can't answer).

    As for root, check whether that's possible for that phone first. Especially if you propose to buy it from a US service provider, as Samsungs sold through them are often locked down very hard.
