I have no storage space left in my mobile.  I have erased everything possible, emptied cache etc. 
Do i gain more space by placing in a new bigger memory card, for example 64GB? There  are 2 slots for memory cards, meaning that there is one free area for a second card. Will it work?

I went to a shop today and bought a 64 GB micro SD, the shop assistant mounted it in my device telling that the photos now would automatically be directed to this new card.

I am a bit confused though. Why can´t I see anything? The settings read storage: 780 MB, memory 1 GB.           I don´t find anything about the SD card.

a memory card will only allow you to transfer photos and some apps over freeing your internal storage. i suggest the app "Files by Google" to help you clear your space,
or just go onto play store>my apps and games > manage storage, there you can see what's using up your space

It´s photos I would like to transfer over to a new card. I believe it would free quite a lot of space.  ???

Thank you for the tips, I will look at them.  But, at the moment it´s not possible to add any app.

Bear in mind apps are stored on you device ram, move them to the sd card but be warned, when they get updates you'll need to move them again as the default install is to the local device not the sd card

I take your warning. It means, before I accept an update I move it from SD-card, and back there after the update??
