Is it possible to move Apps from internal storage to external storage? All my previous phones you could transfer apps via settings however with the new A21s it's not giving me the option to move to sd card for any of my apps which were moveable on previous phone.
Thanks

If the option isn't in the app preferences section to move storage type then it's not an option for that particular model of phone at this time @Speedy82 

 

Not all phone's have this option.

your better off just making sure your Google & Samsung cloud back up settings are set up correctly. You should then be able to restore when you log a device in.

Have the same problem can't (won't) let me move apps to sd card, Samsung need to do an update to resolve this issue, the only two thing you can do is set up new photos to be stored on sd card when taken a photo and it will allow you to move files to sd card and you can move your music to sd card

Any word from Samsung on this? My new A21s seems to have even less storage than my old S7, so I purchased an sd to keep photos etc and free up internal storage. I don't want to go to the Cloud or Google, I want to keep it all on my 'phone as we only have intermittent internet and often just 3G coverage where we live. Very frutrating!
