Why can't I use the 8gb microSD card in my Nokia 8 phone as internal space?
Could someone from Nokia please answer? This SD-card issue on Nokia 8 is not an issue on Nokia 5. Why is it like this. There is no mention on this in the users guide.
I asked support this very question today. It is because of hardware. It is possible on e.g Nokia 5, nut not on Nokia 8. I also gave feedback on that it is wrong in the user guide. You can not move apps to SD card.
please Nokia, activated this option
Just bought Nokia 8 after reading this thread I seriously wish I hadn't, spent £80+ for a 256gb sd card and all I can do is store media on it, unbelievable. Nokia Supports answer was even more unbelievable "you haven't be able to set a sd card to Internal Memory since the Nokia 3 - BECAUSE - doing so damages the phones"
Nokia in the past were known for reliability etc, now they cannot answer a question properly, seem to be going the same way as Microsoft, ripping customers off and no care for their loyal customers. Add to all this the support page FAQS still to this date is telling you how to set the sd card to "Internal Storage" !!!
COME ON NOKIA, ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM AND YOUR MISREPRESENTATION OF THE NOKIA 8 & SHOW A BIT OF CARE AND SUPPORT FOR CUSTOMERS
In which case you have grounds to return the Nokia 8 for a full refund as you have been misled regarding a specific function which influenced your purchase decision or have you wasted that much time moaning on forums about it you are now passed the return date?
Why anyone would need over 300GB of app storage working at a much slower pace while putting their faith in a storage solution which is nowhere near as robust as the internal storage is beyond me i must be honest.
As i said you have (or had) grounds to return the phone with consumer law fully on your side, it has been your choice not to do so and you have taken to, er, hang on let me be more tactful about this express your opinions publicly as to how Nokia have mislead you with misinformation whilst taking no action to rectify the problem.
BTW fully and whole heartily agree it is your right to have a good moan but you had the power to change things.
There is nothing to sort out, that is how stock android is, blame Google.
First I bought a Nokia 5 to give Android a try, now I own a 7 plus and am very happy with it.
The 5 could add the SD card as internal encrypted memory, but you could never ever remove it without crashing the apps moved to it. And HERE WeGo e. g. was not able to save downloaded maps there.
This is now possible with the 7 plus. So, it is ok for me that Android automatically saves all cache folders of all apps on the SD and that I can save unimportant but huge data there, e. g. GB large drone videos :-)
For me, these restrictions are less hurting than the 16 GB of the Nokia 5.
And I can remove the SD or it may fail without leaving my phone or at least many apps corrupted.
It isn't a problem, it is a feature intended for low end devices that the Nokia 8 doesn't have.
