Most Android smartphones happen to support external SD cards along with the built-in Internal SD card (or primary phone storage). With extendible external sdcard, you can take the storage upto 64gb or even 128gb.
But there is a catch. Your apps can only be installed to Internal SD-card, everything else can share the space among the sdcards. Even more problematic is the modern Games on Android. Each game like NFS, NOVA3 can eat 3GB of storage. There is a need to move, link and map apps from main sdcard to external sd card.
If you’re an advanced user, or have basic Linux know how, you already know how to tackle this low space scenario. The answer is Soft link/ Hard links. But thats not everyone’s cup of tea.
