5.0 Lollipop, ART, and memory limitations of the G

2014-10-20, 16:09 PM

Using ART with 4.4 KitKat doesn’t allow moving apps to SD card. ART will be the default with 5.0 Lollipop. Will this still be a limitation when this device gets updated to 5.0?

Move apps to SD card when using ART...



 No



 ...when using ART, you cannot move apps to the SDcard. Media moves are fine. (You can switch to Dalvik, move apps, and then switch back to ART. ART is a developer option -- use it at your own risk!)

None of us will know until 5.0 is released for the G.

I was hoping that Matt or another Motorola rep might be able to give insight.



There are nice comprehensive posts on what you can and cannot do with the SD card memory for the Moto G and Moto E under 4.4.



It would be helpful to know in advance of 5.0 for those considering this phone.

Historically, Motorola (and its employees) have not commented on features until software or hardware is released. 



If someone "considering this phone" did know that "ART still doesn't allow you move apps to SD" what would be the outcome? If it is a limitation of ART regardless of 4.x or 5.x - what else could a person do? Buying a different phone would not be an issue as this is an OS, not phone model issue. 



We all just have to wait and see what the new OS release brings.

I'm looking into the question. When I have an answer I'll respond in the other existing thread.
