As this answer pointed out, moving apps to your external sd card decreases your overall system performance due to the tens or hundreds of partitions created for those apps. Now I wonder, is there any way to avoid this and have the system use a single partition, maybe formatted ext3 or xfs or the like? My devices are rooted, if that helps, but I'd prefer sticking to the stock (samsung galaxy) OS.

  • Playing on the tags you've used: have you checked our app2sd tag-wiki? Keep your eyes open there for e.g. Link2SD and Extended methods :) – Izzy May 5 '15 at 14:52

    @Izzy good point, sounds like I should try link2sd – Tobias Kienzler May 5 '15 at 15:08
  • And if that works out the way expected, make sure to answer your own question and share your solution :) – Izzy May 5 '15 at 15:27
