    Because of the way it works when setting the SD as internal storage, the card no longer is "portable" when that option is used. What this means is that you can't move it from the device on which it is considered "internal storage" and use it on another device without reformatting it. This is one of the risks that comes with such a setup. The BEST use of an SD card on Android is to use it for photo and video storage, to offload that from the internal storage.
