I have Sony Xperia M. It has 4GB of built-in memory, however I see only 2GB)))

The fact of applications can be installed only in built-in memory upset me very much. I do not play any hard games. Heavy one, I've installed, is 150MB program of off-line maps with 3 city and it occupies all of place((( Now I have a 16GB of free place on my SD-card and I get a message every minute, that it is not enough memory for android. It is very sad news.

I have moved or deleted from built-in memory everything I can. Can I explain to my phone that sd-memory is exactly the same memory as a built-in? Or somehow can I move one my heavy application to sd-card, keep it works? Or what do you advice me with this?

Thank you in advance.

  • I've just added two tags to your questions. Please check the insufficient-memory tag-wiki plus the app2sd tag-wiki, they hold the information you need to get started on this. Then please return and answer your own question if solved, or edit it and describe what you've tried and were you're stuck. Thanks!

  • All programs in the links, you gave me, need a root access. I want avoid it very much. So I started to brake. It is very sad, but manufacturer does not leave me any choice. Thanks. Jul 24 '14 at 18:54
  • The tag-wikis themselves give outlines, and in the case of app2sd explain the basic ideas. Have you checked e.g. the questions tagged app2sd for possible non-root solutions? I know they do exist, question is just which of them works with your device. See e.g. this answer (newer syntax), Move App to SD in Jelly Bean.
