    Those of us that purchased a higher end SD card would love to have this option available to us but to agree with your point we arent a big enough percentage for Samsung to take us serious enough to give us this feature.
    I mentioned previously that adoptable storage is activated on an S7 using ADB commands. No root needed. Samsung just removed the UI to toggle the command from onboard the phone itself. You just need the ADB bridge program to toggle the switch from outside the phone. Basically it's like a lamp with no bulb. Just bring your own bulb and you're good to go.

    Curious... those of you using adaptable storage, do you notice a drop off in reliability and speed?... Also what grade SD card are you using? Does the speed of the SD card matter?

    I intentionally keep my memory buckets separate. So apps are executed from the 64G internal memory in my LGV10, and things like pics, video, and music are read and written to SD. My thinking is its "easier" for the CPU to function this way. The Snapdragon 808 in my LG V10 is no speed demon, and I think (hope) I am doing whats best for it.

    Also cache can get messy on Android depending on the apps you install and use. How well does adaptable storage handle cache clutter?... er how well does the CPU handle cache thats piling up on the SD? Do you find it necessary to clear cache more often when using adaptable storage?

    Can anyone comment on these points?... thanks in advance.

    Hey Golfie, I just want to thank you again for directing me to this little app. I purchased the pro version because I didn't want the advertisements. The interface is excellent with everything you need to know as well as selectable themes, etc. There is also a notification option which advises you when there is an app that needs moving. Every thing I wanted in spades. 😆
    I also want to apologize for going off on you for no good reason. And I admire the fact that even though I was rude to you, you continued to try to help me. That shows class. You really came through for me. Thanks again.

    I couldn't find the app that I had when I was on my Galaxy S2. It probably was pulled by either the dev, or hasn't been updated on so long that my phone is viewed as incompatible. Glad you like the app.

    Sorry for being short earlier. I was dealing with a real life Android issue for someone at work, and even though they asked me for help, told me since I didn't have an S6, how do I know what I'm talking about. I got that comment right before one of my replies to you. I apologize.

    It's a decision made by Samsung which I cannot answer for. There was a time back during Kitkat days that Samsung was the only manufacturer to retain the move to SD card option on the phone. I think up to now, they still are the only ones. Other manufacturers would need to user to download something like Apps2SD or Link2SD from the Play Store to partially transfer thr apps. I do not know if either app supports mass moving to SD card.
    I am not sure about other companies, but my LG, while it doesn't give you move to sd card, if you go into storage option of some apps (FIOS will let you do it) you can see Storage Used and you can Change it from internal to SD. Also as stated before not all data moves, but some portion of it at least.

    I use AppMgr III. It shows what is movable and let's you Multi-select.
