Sorry but this feature is not available as Google removed it in preparation for the new Android L - The only way known would be to root your device but in doing so any warranty you have could become void

You cannot move Google based apps and few others to SD card. But assuming you haven't tried it already, you can move other downloaded apps to SD card from Settings - Apps - Select the app and tap Move to SD card. This will not move the entire app to the SD card but a major portion of it.

I tried to move other apps which has given ' Move to SD card' option. But it is occupying space in the internal memory only. Also unable delete SD card contents with other file explorer apps like astro.

game problem

I will never be able to play games more than about 800 MB such as asphalt 8. What is the need of adreno 305 and quad core??????!!!! Very less internal space and no option to install on sd card.

playing games

How can I play games on Xperia E3 dual like asphalt 8 and other similar heavy games if there is so less internal storage. Any idea about how to install it on sd card. What is the need of quad core processor, adreno and 1 gb ram?

It's not a Sony issue, Android doesn't support this feature anymore.
