How to set my SD card as a default download storage source on LG K8? Thanks in advance!

Well, that phone should be running Android "Marshmallow", which is what you would need to be able to make the card "Internal" storage. However it is completely possible that the manufacturer has restricted this option on that phone. It happens a lot. To see if you can convert the card use the following instructions.


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.
