    My LG K8V isn't letting me move any apps to my SD card. Is this phone defective?

    What gives? My LG G4 started boot-looping last Saturday and I needed a quick replacement. I don't see the option for any apps at all and Opera Mini is moveable to the SD card. It's on the SD card of my old LG Transpyre that I use on wifi and was on my G4's SD card. It's been on the SD card of every android I've had in the last four years.

    A lot of Android phones don’t allow that.

    Had I known that this phone didn't, I never would've purchased it.

    Well if it's only been a few days then wipe the phone and return it.

    Which version of Android does the phone have? Version 6 does not support moving apps to SD card. Version 5 and 7 does. At least that's what I've read about 7, but I don't have a phone that's been updated to 7 yet.

    With 6, you have to use adaptable storage. Some manufacturers have removed support for that though.

    I think it's 6.0.1. My G4 allowed transfer apps to my SD card and it was on Version 6.

    I'm probably gonna order a V20 on ebay when I go on my week vacation from work so I'm not too concerned. I'm not planning on using this phone forever. I just haven't did it yet cause the seller I order phones from requires you to be home to sign the package for delivery.

    Samsung phones look cheap. I hate physical buttons anywhere on my screen. I haven't had a phone with a physical home button in the last 4 and a half years. I've never had a phone that wasn't made by LG.

    Your LG G4 started boot looping and now your LG K8V won't let you move apps to SD card. But you love LG so much that you won't use anything else??

    Awesome brand loyalist!

    Newer Android editions will measure the actual microSD speed and if is too slow, will deny moving apps on that card.
    For Android Nougat the proper way to use a fast SD is to format it as adopted storage. But it really needs to be a fast card, not cheap.

    Warning, when "resetting to defaults" in Android Nougat, remove first the account from phone menus. Otherwise it will ask for user and password at next boot. Not even reflash will help, it's an antitheft feature.

    I'm not a brand loyalist. I'm loyal to the best bang for my buck.
