I really hate this kind of decision.
What if a user prefer to lose some performance but take benefice of the great comfort of having a larger internal memory?
Why don't just let the user decide how they balance their priority? A warning while activating this option would have been sufficient.
I am very disapppointed.

Just wait until the apps you have moved to the SD card update. After update you will find your apps back into the internal storage and then you have to move them back to the SD card one by one! And this will happen everytime the apps on your SD card get updated.
Instead of disabling a great feature, devs should at least try and build code that blocks any cards that do not comply with the speeds they require. For example if a user inserts an SD card that is class 'Lame' which lacks in performance, then the option to use SD card as internal storage is disabled in the GUI. But if a user inserts an SD card class 10 superior in performance then the option is enabled for the user.
Really frustrating getting back from the store with a class 10 card and then finding out knowing that sony has disabled the option for not trying hard enough.

That's always been the case since Android 5. some apps allow you to move to SD and once updated, Particial, not all of the data from the same app are stored back into internal memory. Next time when you update an app on SD, before you move it again, take a look at the data size on internal and external. I believe it's just the updated portion of the data is store back into internal until you move it again.
However in Android 5, under the app setting, there was a specific tab just for all the apps on the external memory. you can easily select that and move all the apps that can be movable. In Android 6, this tab has been removed. you have to through each app to move it again.
it's frustrating, I agree. Sony can easy give us the ability to mount the SD as external, but they removed that feature.
Now the Google Pixel is out, and it has no SD option, I'm a little torn why Google themself don't use this feature. hummm??

if you are having these issues, just for testing purpose, I would reset the phone back to factory default, then format the SD card, of course, backup all your data first. apps you an get back. if all else fail, call Sony.
Mine seem to run fine, just a pain trying to move it back and forth when ever the app is updated.

clueless1 exactly the same thing i just bought a 64 gb uhs-1 card for 25 euros and i con't make i worth while. sony is really really bad with this. now i have to temper with my phone, perhaps root it or smething, because, 8 gb of free space i just plain stupid nowadays. will switch to other manufacturers in the future for sure
