That said, if one wishes to use SD for apps/internal storage, good brands include Samsung and SanDisk.
I always use Samsung now since I've had too many problems with SanDisk being slow. I normally don't move to SD anymore since most devices have enough space nowadays.

In internal storage tap on a folder that has files you want to move. Then tap on the three dots menu on the upper right and one of the choices is Move. Tap on that and it will put a check box next to each file in the folder. Check the ones you want to move and tap on MOVE in the lower right corner, then choose SD card. Choose the folder you want to move the files to and tap OK. If you're chicken you can copy the files the same way instead of moving and then delete the files after you're done.

If the files you want to move were put into internal storage by an app - like an ebook reader - you might be able to move them from there. Otherwise you will need to tell the app where to find the files after you move them using the file manager.

LG does allow you to move apps to the SD card. I can post screen shots later if you need me to. Not all apps allow you to move, but the Kindle app does allow it. Go to Apps in the settings menu and tap on the Kindle app. Then tap on storage and it will show it's currently in internal storage. Tap on change and choose SD card and it will move some of it to the SD.

I'm dyslexic and tried to make sure I said left when it was on the left, but if you don't see something on the side I said it was on try the other side!
Okay. I learned some things. I've still got a long way to go.

As far as your phone is concerned, the OS is apparently Android 8.0 "Oreo," since you "just got it." It came out in August 2017. (I suppose that that is the reason that when I bought my cellphone in about August 2017, the carrier was practically giving them away (mine has a Nougat OS)).

A lot of things don't carry over from Nougat to Oreo, but enough do that I could work through some of the issues, and I think manage to get a few files transferred to the SD card. I think that I can do more, but the way that I'm having to do right now is slow and cautious. In the meantime, I should have some breathing room.

I'm still mining your post for some nuggets (not "Nougats," but "nuggets." ).

Actually it is Nougat. I wanted the US open market unlocked so I could unlock the bootloader and root. I was also waiting to see the Huawei P20, and when that came out I decided to go with the LG.

I guess you and I are close to the same (over 50!) age. The Commodore 64 was around while I was in college but the only person I knew who had one was a computer science major.

I learned about the Commodore 64 probably in the early mid-80's.

I've got what I think is an interesting story about what I had before that, but suffice it to say that before buying a Commodore, I got a computer from one of the many no-name companies vying to come out on top as far as producing the definitive home computer was concerned. Programs loaded from a cassette drive! The monitor was a TV set of some kind (analog, regular definition, of course). There were virtually no ready-made programs for it, but there were plenty of programs out there, written by the computer geeks, for them. But you had to type all of the lines of code into your computer yourself.

A science teacher, who I knew well, taught a science class or two at a local high school. One class was in computers, and he loved the stuff. He was the one who put me onto getting a Commodore 64. To say that it was a world of improvement from the earliest model of desktop computers would be a gross understatement.

Okay, Nougat it is.

From the research that I did, though, Nougat (Android 7) was released in August 2016; Oreo (Android 8) was released in August 2017. So, then, if you "just got it (the phone)," why wouldn't it have to be an Android 8?

But I wondered this--maybe those dates above were the dates when the versions were first released, and that for a while, both versions co-existed? In other words, there was an overlap when both Nougat phones and Oreo phones were sold? So, you could (for whatever reason) get/have gotten a Nougat phone long after Oreo's release?

Aside from calendar issues, as I mentioned before some things on your phone, and vice versa, simply aren't the same as on my Nougat phone. Other than not finding things on my phone, that are on your phone, and vice versa, what makes me think that I have a Nougat is that Settings > System > About phone > Software info says that my Android version is 7.0 (so, Nougat).

As I mentioned, while a lot of things seem not to be the same on your phone as mine (Android versions), enough are that I think that I can work through some of the issues, and manage to get a few (more) files transferred to the SD card. And I still need to coopt some of the things that were in the other posts.

So Commodore it was.

You may have been asking if the TRS-80 is the no-name computer that I owned prior to owning the Commodore. If so, no the TRS-80 wasn't. I may have mentioned in my post that it was a time when there were lots of "no-name" companies trying to produce the definitive desktop computer; the company that produced this one was just one of the many. I don't remember the name that the manufacturer stuck on the machine, but it definitely wasn't Commodore anything or TRS anything. When the dust settled, though, there was basically only Commodore and, as you mentioned, TRS-80. That's my recollection of history

I was thinking of the TRS 80 as having a tape drive.
I wonder what tiny amount of data was stored on a cassette tape compare to what can fit on today's huge-capacity SD cards.... Of course 30 or 40 years from now today's cards will no doubt seem tiny compared to whatever storage capacity is available by then.

I hope you can get some things moved on your phone. I have hooked mine up to my PC a few times to move or copy things like pictures - it's easy to do.

I don't know why you didn't see any lower storage numbers after you removed some things. That doesn't seem right.

OIC. I don't know about the TRS, one way or the other.

Not only were the tape drives slow, but this "no-name" system that I had, at least, had sequential, not random access. Not that this "no-name" machine "needed" for the tape drive to have that--it had all of its memory and storage onboard, if I'm not mistaken. The only thing that the cassette drive did was load the program that you wanted to use (you had to do this every time that you wanted to use the program, too; and some times it would take a while, depending upon the complexity of the program). But once you had the program loaded, you could keep running it . . . well, basically forever. There were some times when I would load Space Invaders once and play it for hours at a time.

Thanks. I haven't tried the PC route yet. I think that there has to be a way to move files and folders quickly from internal to SD, or SD to internal using just the phone. And I'm going to find it.

Yeah, I'm still bumfuzzled about how nothing seemed to change after I uninstalled several apps. There's probably a simple answer that I just haven't discovered for myself or learned from someone else. But it's frustrating for now.

The two things are somewhat unrelated. When Google releases an operating system is usually far ahead of when phone manufacturers actually start using the new OS version. Majority of phones currently shipping probably don't even have Oreo yet. I reckon a number of phones have likely just gotten an update to Nougat recently (if they're even updated at all).

It's only frustrating because you make it so. You're already jumping to Moon Reader and Calibre Companion when what you need is a file manager.

If you install a third party file manager, you wouldn't need manufacturer and firmware specific instructions on how to move files from internal memory to SD card. You could use instructions/tutorials for the app which are easier to find than various manufacturer skin+firmware specific ones. Older versions of Android don't come with built-in file managers so one would've needed to install a third party file manager on those anyway. I've used Android since the Android 2.2 Froyo days hence, ES File Explorer Pro is an automatic install on my Android devices.

This apparent limitation in knowledge is why I previously suggested to buy a fast SD card (UAHS1) and follow the advice given previously by Dopeangel. Then he wouldn't have to worry about internal memory versus SD card.
