Re: Unable to transfer apps to SD card since upgrading to Android 6

2019-03-26, 14:50 PM

Well, I'm just coming across this thread as I have similar problems. I have Android 6.0.1 (see attached screenshot7). I formatted the SD card as internal storage and can move some apps to the sd card.

I attached a file with screenshots where you can see that the version is 6.0.1 . I made different screenshots showing apps which are not movable. On the unmovable apps you will find the "change" button missing.

 

Hope this will help.

I don't know what model Moto you have, but there is NO  Android OS update 6.01 available for the MotoG3 via Lenovo / Motorola OTA installation.  If you have a Moto G3 and click on About Phone in "Settings" and have Android 6.0 installed, when you click on "System Updates" the phone reports after a search that "Your device's software is up to date".  It is a well know fact the Android 6.0 REMOVED ALL of the Move Apps function from the Moto Android Phones and Lenovo refuses to do anything about it.

 

All I can say is (I HOPE YOU ARE LISTENING Lenovo) when I go to buy a new Cell Phone or Computer or Tablet, I will NEVER buy anything with the Lenovo name on it! Keep your garbage in China.

I have a Motorola Moto G3 purchased in August 2017 with Android 6.0.1 installed since I purchased it. So yes, there is a 6.0.1 version vor the Moto G3.

 

The function to move apps is there, though only for some Apps. As you can see on my previous post attachment I have 518 MB apps on the SD card. I wish I could move more as I have only about 1GB free on the internal storage. However, without the ability to move apps to the SD card the internal storage would be full now.

Well we have 2  Moto G3's we bought late last year (2018), one was brand new in the box from a Motorola Dealer and it did NOT come with Android 6.0.1, it had the original 4.4 Kit Kat on it and the OTA Updates stopped at 6.0 when I updated it. The other Moto G3 came as a "Refurbished" unit had 6.0 already on it and it will NOT upgrade beyond 6.0.  Every other respondent to this thread also reports that they cannot upgrade beyond Android 6.0 either

 

So I don't know how yours somehow got a 6.0.1 upgrade that is not available to any other Moto G3 owner.  On the Motorola / Lenovo website, there is NO Android 6.0.1 upgrade even listed, it shows 6.0 was the end of the line for updates.

So I consider myself lucky. I bought the phone in August 2017 from EBAY UK and did never any updates. Though I have to admit I did never check what Android version it was running on when I bought it.

The internal info says that Android version is 6.0.1 as per screenshot.

 

Sorry mate....
