I love this phone; an entry level with compact size and good build quality. The only downside (for Indonesian market) is the memory (2/16).
You can enable in Dev Mode Force All Apps to SD Card to be able to move App Data to SD Card but not all support it & will crash the app.
If app crashes or wont update in play store, just move it back to internal storage to fix.
This phone has the WORST documentation I've ever seen. It mentions a Notification panel without telling you how to get to it. It says to press Volume UP to answer, but you have to swipe the green phone icon up to do so. On other phones just touching the green phone answers the call. I've abandoned the printed documentation in favor of Google.
cheap price but bad performances, need to debloat this device first, remove all pre-installed apps, swap an SD Card to increase Internal storages, and change the original battery into double power battery, then it would be worth the price.
Angie, 29 Jul 2022Can someone please tell me how to move apps to the SD card?It's hard, you have to go to my files and copy all your other stuff and paste to SD. Then go to apps click on the one you want to move then click dots on upper right and then move the apps that you have the option to move
Mine android media has stopped
Mine apps have lost memory
Angie, 05 Aug 2022I can transfer VERY FEW apps to the SD card. Is there an explanation or a solution for that?Yep I'm also facing the same problem
Does anyone have a problem with distortion on calls for the caller's end?
Onstage, 16 Mar 2022Yes i agree it is a bad phone but not like the way you described it, i have been using it for ... moreHow do you install a "security patch update"?
Any time it demands me to install an update, I can't, because not enough storage. This phone is an oxyMORON!

I can transfer a couple of small apps to the SD card, and not able to transfer any large ones, which makes the SD card fairly useless, since it's the apps that take up a LOT of the storage!
Is there an explanation or a solution for that???

This phone is one of the most annoying phones I have used storage gets easily filled up and other annoying stuffs
Shouldve used Android Go on this small storage small ram device! Samsungs One UI is Bloated & puts this phone to a crawl & storage will be full just installing social apps!
I bought the phone from the carrier Consumer Cellular after they convinced me I needed a new phone, found out that there is so little storage I can't download hardly any apps or even update some of the apps pre-installed on the phone. When I called the carrier about this, I was told no problem just install an external SD card and it'll be fine. Turned out I could transfer gallery items and documents but cannot transfer almost all apps (which take up the bulk of storage). And the pre-installed apps can't be uninstalled. I've called the carrier several times (one "tech support" person actually Googled instructions to try to help). I've called Samsung a number of times, and they've walked me through the steps (even referred me to YouTube videos), they suggested I get a Samsung brand SD card (which I did) but that didn't help. Every tech support I've talked to inevitably throw up their hands about moving certain apps to the SD card. It's constantly alerting me I'm running out of space. Meanwhile, enough time passed by that it became too late to return the phone. It's embarrassing to have people suggest downloading apps, and me trying to explain why I can't.
To add to that, I've had callers complain about distortion and reverb (even though I don't have that problem on my end). Again, another embarrassing explanation...
Other than having a battery with long life compared to my old one (an S6), this phone is useless to me.
I thought Samsung was a reputable company, but I don't know what they were thinking with this poor excuse of a device.
After you install a couple of apps the memory gets full. it comes with a lot of unnecessary apps that you cannot get rid off.
