The Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime is a smartphone put on sale in November 2016 to open the gap in the low-medium range of the manufacturer. This smartphone comes with Android 6.0 Marshmallow by default, a modern version of Google’s operating system, 1.5 GB of RAM and a 4-core processor at a speed of 1.4 GHz.
However, one of the main problems of this device is its internal storage memory, which, in the factory, comes with 8 GB shared between the operating system, applications and user data. On the 8GB of internal memory, just turn on the device are busy 4.5 GB by the Android itself and this applications, leaving only 3.5 GB of free storage to install applications, games, save the hundreds of files that we usually share WhatsApp and the photos we take with this device.
A very common problem after a few weeks of use is to see how the device indicates that we run out of free storage or that when trying to install an application we see how the Play Store returns a numeric error synonymous with insufficient space.
In addition to the basic maintenance by the user (copy the photos to the computer, clean Whatsapp often, uninstall applications that we do not need or use, etc.), it is also possible to finish, or to reduce these problems by installing and configuring a micro SD memory.

How To Fix Memory Problem Of Samsung Galaxy J2 Prime Using Memory Card
When using a micro-SD card in a smartphone, if we are going to use it to install applications, it is recommended that it be class 10, otherwise we may have speed and performance issues.
Once we have the card, we turn off the device and insert it next to the SIM card, on the back, on the top of the battery, and turn on the device.
Once the memory card is inserted, we can start using it for anything we want. Many applications, such as Google Play Music, allow us, for example, to choose the route on which the data is to be saved. In this way, for example, we can indicate in the application itself that we want the data to be saved in the memory card rather than in the internal memory.
In addition, Android will allow us to switch to most (but not all) SD applications that we have installed. In this way, the applications that occupy the most can easily move on the memory card to save space in the internal memory. To do this, just open the settings menu of our Android, go to “Internal storage> Applications” and find the one we want to open its properties.
In the section “Storage used”, we will click on “Change” and choose “SD card”.
We will wait for the process of moving the application to finish and, when it finishes, we can see how the application now occupies space on the memory card instead of internal storage.
In this way, moving the heavier applications to the memory card will save space and we will be able to install more applications in the limited storage space.
