    Re: LG Leon: Manage the SD Card / External Storage

    Thank you this manual, but is there a way set the default way of saving any stuff (whether it's an app or any media file) straight to SD instead of internal memory?

    Re: LG Leon: Manage the SD Card / External Storage

    I tried to figure that out myself. But according to, some people are saying you may have to root your phone, and then download an app that allow you to transfer your apps to your External Storage. I have an LG Leon LTE w/ Lollipop 5.1, and I use an app called TransferToSD. Although it tells me there is no need to transfer any apps to my External Storage, I notice after downloading the app I could [manually] transfer apps that I downloaded. This can be done by going to Applications/App Manager, under Settings. If you're going to use the rooting method, be very cautious. The LG Leon LTE w/ Lollipop 5.1 has special security mechanisms that make it nearly impossible to root the phone; especially with rooting apps that are labeled as Malware, by any security or antivirus app you are using on your phone.
