Normally, the photos, images and videos occupy the major part of the storage space in the smartphones. And we must also remember that if the internal storage space in the smartphones is reduced to a specific level, the operational capability is impacted to significant level. In the case, your mobile device may become slower to respond. So, if you want to get maximum from your mobile, you must keep the usage and occupation of the internal storage to the minimum and must decide to shift some of the stuff on internal storage to the SD card.

    What is this supposed to be? There’s no mention of the manufacturer or the camera app used… But judging by the picture it’s a Huawei and apparently they are using a modified google camera app since there is NO option in the google camera, whatsoever, to switch the storage!! And unfortunately the feature people usually want the google camera for (photosphere) isn’t open source and cannot be found in other apps.
