You can NOT. some apps may allow you to store photo/video, or install on the SD card, but to be honest, you will just use the SD card for storing photos, videos, music, etc, etc.

But you can't set the phone up to use the SD card as the main memory.

 

Non puoi. alcune app potrebbero consentire di archiviare foto / video o installarle sulla scheda SD, ma ad essere onesti, utilizzerai semplicemente la scheda SD per archiviare foto, video, musica, ecc. ecc. Ma non è possibile configurare il telefono per utilizzare la scheda SD come memoria principale.

Re: Use external memory as main memory

Hi @Klem-90, welcome to our forum!

Your question has been translated to English as this is an International forum, please post any replies in English and it will be easier for me and other users to assist you.

The Xperia 1 does not support moving apps to the SD card or merging the SD card with the internal storage (this was never added to Xperia devices in general when it became available in Android 6.0).

Just as @RottenFoxBreath mentioned, you can still store media, photos and videos on the SD card and most applications that I use for music, podcasts, movies and TV shows can also store the downloaded content on my SD card.

If you have a lot of that content in your device, check the settings inside the applications that you use to see if such an option is available for the applications that you use as this can free up quite a lot of storage from the internal storage (for me it's around 30 GB).

I hope that helps! Slightly smiling Face
