I tried last night with a Class U3 card and was surprised it didn't work. Contacted support via the phone app and was told it did not work as internal storage only for storage of media. I then sent them a copy of the page from the User Guide also in the support App and on this webiste that says it does work as Internal storage. The online support were actually quite rude in their reply but would not admit that Nokia have messed up saying something in the User Guide that does not work on the phone.
I then sent the same request and information to Nokia via email to customer support. Not heard back yet.
Same here. There's no way I can get my SD card to be used for internal storage. Nokia 6 (2018), Oreo 8.1.
Same trouble with my nokia 6.1, I can only format to external... Hoping next update fix it
I have had a reply to my question to Nokia customer service:
Greetings from Nokia Mobile Care ! We are sorry for the inconvenience that you are facing!
Please kindly keep in mind that the Nokia 6.1 device, as well as all other Android 1 devices, do not have the option for Internal storage formatting of an SD card. Additionally, there is no option for forced formatting of an SD card as such.
We hope this information managed to answer your inquiry. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us again!
Still waiting for an explanation as why the User Manual says that Apps can be moved to the SD card.
Thanks for your update, bullroar. I've received the same reply, not sure if they'll change the plan.. :)
I am facing such kind of problem. Nokia care should aware of this problem, they don't know about memory card issue in new Nokia 6.1 device, they guide us bluntly. And also Nokia should take care and fix that issue as soon as possible.
You can use the SD card for data storage, just use the settings in the app to select SD card as main storage.
