    If you have the SD card formatted as "adoptable storage" (the default), there's no "card" as far as the phone is concerned - the "internal" and "external" storage are combined into "storage", so you can't move an app from storage to storage. You'd have to reformat the card to "portable storage", which is not a good idea for a phone with so little internal storage.

    The way you have iy now, apps are installed to the eMMC storage in the phone or the SD storage on the card at the phone's discretion, saving you a lot more storage space.

    ("Moving an app to the SD card" actually moves small pieces of the app to the card, and for each piece there's a pointer left in internal storage, so you aren't really saving much space - which is why adoptable storage was developed.)
