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 –

LG Tribute Royal Screen Mirroring / Cast to TV, Roku – lmx320pm

The latest LG Tribute Series Android Smartphone is named Royal. Being a Tribute Model it’s not that Royal but feels more premium than it’s predecessor, Tribute Empire. In this post, we are going to find ways to mirror Tribute Royal to the Big TV Screen.

The Mirroring can be done using an MHL / HDMI cable which works without an internet connection. The wireless screen sharing works using Miracast technology. The popular Miracast devices are Chromecast, Roku, Fire TV Stick, Mircosoft Display Adapter, Samsung Smart TV, etc.

Let’s try to Mirror / Cast the Tribute Royal screen via wired as well as wireless mirroring –

LG Tribute Royal MHL / HDMI Compatibility

MHL / Slimport / Hdmi compatibility has become a thing of the past. A few years ago Slimport was offered in many LG budget smartphones. I myself had LG Volt 2 Boost Mobile with Slimport support.

The wired mirroring is more stable, offers a better frame rate, and works without an internet connection.

Unfortunately, the LG Tribute Royal is not compatible with MHL / HDMI. We have to resort to wireless screen mirroring over a wifi connection.

Let’s check out how to do that –
