After root, you get the supreme control of the os and can use the sd card as part of internal storage. I have my s4 rooted just on the day my warranty was over but I still don't need this feature as you can't use the phone without sd card then.
The manufacturers are responsible for the insane price and less availability of 32 and 64 gb phones. Who else is responsible? And devs are responsible for move to sd card not available in all apps. If devs agree, they can incorporate this feature in every app.
I personally prefer 32 gb phone with sd card slot. You can remove sd cards and can use any number of them. We can also use them as small portable storages. They ease storage. I won't buy a phone which doesn't have sd card slot.
Great to know that you can move apps to sd card on m8. Can you also tell how much storage us available at the start out of 16 gb on m8 and s5?
Have a nice day

It's merely the Google's decision. Many android users suffering from this Kitkat SD card issue. I can move some apps into the SD card but not all the apps. I think latest version of the apps will enable this feature. Anyway, I saw some patches on Google store to fix the SD card issue and root your phone. But I'm scared to do that.
I think Google needs to force phone manufactures to design phones without SD cards.

If not, please don't mislead people here. I'm responsibly saying it because I own a M8. I'm not the only person who saying it. Read all comments here, then you will find there is another user also mentioned that Astro File Manager work on his M8 and he can move any file into the SD card. So, there are two M8 owners (including me) have mentioned that.
Watch the video at the below mentioned link. @4.45 It has showed you how Astro File Manager working on the M8.
Brynn, 11 May 2014You seem well up on memory cards so you may be able to help with the following..Thanks..
Wh... moreThe internal memory is Flash storage which is much more costly than the sd cards. Plus companies loot us too by charging even higher costs for those storages. For example, apple takes 200$ to move from 16gb to 32 gb. That's damn expensive. But that's Apple.
The internal storage us definitely faster than the sd cards but it's not that expensive as companies make it. If the company provides no sd card than the costumer will have to go for 32 or 64 gb model asks if they price it higher that means more profit.
And the class 10 uhs I cards have great speed. For a comparison, a high end internal storage will give speeds around 50 to 60 MB/s. A class 2, 4 or 6 sd card will give speeds less than 10 MB/S with speed getting higher with numbers. A class 10 sd card is recommended for high end phones. It provides speeds higher than 10 MB/s. Among class 10 sd cards, there are uhs I cards which provide even higher speeds. For example, my Samsung 64 gb uhs I card provides 70 mb/s read speed and 20 mb/s write speed and it costs around 60$( us dollar).
Have a nice day

When Nokia brought out the N97 the memory was 32gb but class 2..They put class 2 in the device for ruggedness as it had to a least last for the 2 years a contract ran for..They reckon folk would delete this memory many times taking photos/videos putting them on comp then deleting for the next lot of data..
So we come forward to now and Apple and other manufacturers are charging the earth for internal memory..Is this because they are using a class 4,6,10 internal memory and it costs more? If so they must have increased the ruggedness (ie constant read/write/delete) of memory over past few years...
If Google are insisting on the no-sd card rules then manufacturers are going to have to increase internal storage..There is no other way but if they insist on charging loads of money phones will be very expensive..Why did my 64GB card from Amazon cost 38GBP yet manufacturers charge 5x that for internal storage? Are they using some other robust memory?
If this is Googles way forward with fixed memory then we can expect a huge rise in smartphone costs..:(

Hope this helped.

Astro file manager will not move, copy or paste anything from phone memory to SD card on phone with kitkat. Astro and some other file manager work partially on some Samsung eg note 3 which es file Explorer work but none has worked with any htc now. Don't confuse people here. YOU CAN'T MOVE ANYTHING FROM PHONE MEMORY TO EXTERNAL SD CARD ON KITKAT M8 WITH 3RD PARTY APPS
Anonymous, 11 May 2014For your info. Kitkat don't support writing to external SD card by downloaded 3rd party apps. ... morePLEASE UNDERSTAND THIS & READ MY COMMENTS CAREFULLY .
I said you can't only move apps into the external SD card. But you can copy & paste any file from phone memory to SD card. If you install the 'AStro File Manager" you can browse any type of file or folder in the phone memory as well as the SD card. Similarly, Astro File Manage allows you to do all the task such as copy-paste, rename, delete & etc.
Although, none of the third party file manager allows you to move apps into the SD card. If you need to move apps in the SD card, the only method is, going to the "Application Manager" in the phone settings, then move apps into the SD card. But the KitKat version of Android doesn't allows you to do that.
The HTC M8 is not the only phone which comes without a stock file manager, but also Sony and LG phones. If Kitkat doesn't supports third party file managers, there are so many Android users will get trouble. I don't think Google is not fool enough to do such a thing.
Any android phone which comes without a SD card, its internal memory splits into two parts called "Phone Memory & "Internal Memory." That's the thing I mentioned regarding the HTC M7. Of course I know that M7 doesn't have a SD card slot. It was my previous phone.
* IF YOU USE ASTRO FILE MANAGER YOU CAN MOVE ANY FILE FROM PHONE MEMORY TO SD CARD.
I want to ask about the htc one m8, does the camera great enough?? how about the sd card problem? which are you prefer?? and should i go for the m7?? -Thank you

Kitkat don't support writing to external SD card by downloaded 3rd party apps. You can not copy, paste anything from phone memory to external sd except with inbuilt file manager. The case for htc is the worst since htc don't provide inbuilt file manager. M7 don't have SD card so it is not included in this problem. Forgot about astro file manager, solid Explorer etc there are chances that they work for Samsung. But for htc, none is working for now. If you buy htc forget about external sd and make sure that the one you buy has enough inbuilt memory.
