How to Move Music to SD Card Easily

Last updated on July 6, 2015 by

Right now, Samsung Galaxy S6 is very hot on the market. One of its biggest advantages is its super large capacity, which ranges from 32 GB to 128 GB. It is fair to say its internal storage is incomparable at present. However, such phones are in the minority. Most Android phones only have an internal memory of 1 GB, 2 GB, 8 GB or 16 GB. And as more and more big files are stored into the phone, many of us will find the phone is running out of memory. Under this situation, to equip your mobile with a SD card will help to broaden the space. Besides, it also comes in handy when you want to transfer data to another Android phone as you only need to re-plug the SD card.

Many Android users like me use lots of space for storing tons of songs. Transferring them to SD card will free up the usage of phone memory. And if you would like to transfer music from an old phone to a new one, a SD card is a great tool. Therefore, I want to give you some guides on how to move music to SD card in an easy way.

Fast ways to move music to SD card

1. Moving music manually
