I am just trying to understand the concept of expandable memory better. A few years ago I had bought a Samsung Galaxy tab for my parents, and it has low memory (I think 16 GB), seemed okay at that time but clearly fell short later. I tried to add an extra SD card via a slot that was available in the tab, but I could not make that card work for photos. Also, apps such as WhatsApp also didn't work with this card. They needed in-built memory only. Now I am considering buying a new tab, and worried about this problem. Maybe the concept has evolved further and I can easily expand the memory by inserting an external card? Not sure. Can someone explain it in more detail? Thank you in advance.
Thanks for your reply and apologies for the delay in getting back.
1. If some of the apps cannot be moved to the expanded memory, then it is kind of misleading advertisement that memory can be expanded, right? Or is "expanded" and "external" memory separate concepts?
2. I don't have access to that old Samsung tab at the moment, I will be visiting my parents soon. If Photos can indeed be redirected to the SD card, that's great. I guess I need to try that again. If you have any tips on how to do it, much appreciated.
