All apps being loaded to the internal memory. The memory is2 small and can't cope with the apps. New external card 128gb approved by Samsung. Must have external card as default.
 
Well it is going to depend on two things... 1. What version of Android you are running. You will need to already have, or be able to update to, "Marshmallow" and 2. The device will have to have not be restricted from making said change by the manufacturer. Which sadly does happen.


How to turn external SD card into internal storage on "Marshmallow".

NOTE: Please be sure you start with a blank SD card. It needs to be blank because when the card is converted to "Internal" storage, it will be formatted (wiped) and encoded (making the cards data only readable by that device).

1. Go to device “Settings”, then select “Storage”.
2. Select your "SD Card", then tap the “three-dot menu“ (top-right), now select “Settings” from in there.
3. Now select “Format as internal”, and then “Erase & Format”.
4. Your SD Card will now be formatted as internal storage.
5. Reboot your phone.

NOTE: If you don't reboot the phone, many things may not work correctly, so make sure you do.
