LG Tribute Empire & Royal move apps to SD card

Both LG Tribute Empire & Royal are entry-level budget Android smartphones with a mere 16GB internal storage space. The system memory & pre-installed bloatware eats up more than half the storage space.

The actual usable space is less than 7 GB. On both Tribute Empire & Royal, we can increase the storage space with a Micro SD memory card. However, the apps and games still use internal memory.

To solve this problem, we can partition the SD card as internal storage. This feature is known as Adoptable storage. It’s turned off by default. We can enable it via USB Debugging.

Let’s see how to move apps to SD card and use it as internal storage on LG Tribute Empire & Royal –
