When i tried to adopt my external sd card, there is no option to it. I looked around and i figured that it's design flaw. Then i read that i supposed get 3,5 gb of internal storage. When i cleaned it up from my downloaded apps, i only got 1 gb of it.

I have no idea how and what makes it 2,5 gb short. Also i have downloaded duel links and when i moved it to external sd card, only 194 mb of 1,53 gb of data that has been moved.

So, is this something that i have to accept and cry for buying this phone? Or is this something that can be fixed? I really appreciate every reply. Thank you.
 
First, I don't know about 'adopt' with an SD card. There is only inserting it and then 'mounting' it, or having it converted from "External" storage to "Internal" storage. Which requires the instructions I will include in this post. However, so you know, I believe that device can't make this change.

Second, in regard to the space on the phone. The space that you are told you have (advertising, specs on site, etc.) include the phones total storage capacity. That is prior to the installation of the OS (operating system) and the apps that are preinstalled. They take up a lot of space. That would leave you very little to work with if it only came with 3.5GB of space total.

As to the converting a card to "Internal" from "External"...

First, you need to be using a phone that is running at least Android "Marshmallow" (or newer) or be able to upgrade to it. Second, you will need the instructions I am including below. And third, you need a phone that has not been restricted by the manufacturer from making this change. Which does happen.


NOTE: If any of the steps are missing on your phone, or they don't work for you, then you have a phone that either has an older Android version or has been restricted by the manufacturer. If that is the case, you will not be able to use this information.


How to turn the "External" SD card into "Internal" storage on "Marshmallow" a.k.a. 6.0.

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.


How to turn the "External" SD card into "Internal" storage on "Nougat" a.k.a. 7.0.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Be sure you start with a blank SD card. When the card is converted to "Internal" storage, it will be formatted (wiped) and encoded (making the cards data only readable by that device), so anything on it prior would be gone.

1. Go to "Settings", and then select "Storage & USB".
2. At the bottom of the list you should see the SD card's details, including the option to format it and make it "Internal" storage.
3. Once this is done, reboot the device and you can start running things from the card.

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