    Nokia 6 and 7+

    Both seem to take Micro SD cards, can this external memory be configured to be joined up to the internal memory to provide one large memory pool?

    In short, no, nor was it ever really advisable.

    Android Marshmallow did offer "adoptable storage," which formated everything into a single pool, as you put it. It was up to manufacturers whether or not to enable it, and many did not. It also had a number of drawbacks in terms of lost performance and decreased stability. I think I read Google removed adoptable storage in Nougat, but I could be mistaken. If you weren't given the option when you inserted the SD card, then it's unlikely you have the option.

    I wasn't given the option when I set my 7plus up. I had this on my Moto g4 plus and as mooncatt said I would have problems with certain apps if they ended up in the SD card.

    You can do it on the 5, my last phone after my 6p smashed. But didn't bother trying on my 7+ as I have something like 40gb available.

    I didn't bother either, just use it for backing up etc. I have a 128GB card in mine.
