    In the GS 5, installing or moving apps to the SD card was easy. I don't see how to do it with the 8 +. I've scoured the manual but can't find anything. Anyone know?

    try the following
    1. Open Settings.
    2. Scroll down, tap on Apps.
    3. Scroll to find the app you want to move to the SD card and tap it.
    4. Tap on Storage.
    5. Under "Storage used" tap Change.
      • You'll notice that a majority of apps won't support moving to SD card. If there's no "change" option, it simply can't be moved.
    6. Tap the radio button next to SD card.
    7. On the next screen, tap Move and wait for the process to complete.
      • To move the app back to internal storage, simply go through the same process again and select "internal" in the settings.

    Where did you purchase your SD card?
