Keep in mind that there the internal storage (32 GB) and external
(Portable) Storage (Micro SD)
The Moto X4 does not support adaptive storage when an SD can be used as an extension of the internal, Most apps will not transfer to an external (portable)
Yeah, that would be like having ~125 8GB phones. Do understand though that the external memory is really suited for media files (pictures, video, music) since it cannot be used as adoptable storage on the X4.
Also (just to clarify for others that may read this thread), the SIM card is a different animal altogether. The SIM card is used to identify the phone on cellular networks.
edit:To recap… Intermal Storage The amount of built-in storage on the device. Extermal Storage Removable storage of varying capacity. SIM A removable card that is used to identify the device on the carrier/network.
