    1. : After inserting an SD card in your Vibe K5 Note, you should automatically get a notification prompting you to set up the SD card that you have just installed. If not, simply head over to Settings -> Storage & USB. The inserted SD card should show up under Portable storage.

      While you can use the SD card under Portable storage mode, you cannot move apps to it. In this mode, you will have to manually keep transferring your images and other data manually to the SD card. On the positive side, PCs will be able to recognize an SD card being used in your Vibe K5 Note under Portable storage mode making files transfer easier.

    2. : To format the SD card as an internal storage, tap the SD card name and select Format as internal option. Confirm your selection by pressing the Erase & Format option. Depending on the size of the SD card, the formatting procedure can take its own sweet time. Make sure to use a Class 10 or higher SD card otherwise you will get a warning after the formatting procedure is complete that the SD card you are using is slow.

    3. : With the SD card formatted, you will get an option of moving your existing photos and other media files to it. Depending on the size of the content, this process can take up to 5mins.

      Now, you can finally move apps to the SD card on the Lenovo Vibe K5 Note.

    4. : Head over to Settings -> Apps, tap the name of the app you want to move to SD card followed by Storage. Finally, tap Change located under Storage used and select your installed SD card. Confirm your selection by tapping Move and wait for a few minutes. Depending on the size of the application and the speed of the SD card installed, the whole process can take a few minutes.

      Do note that not all applications can be moved to SD card by following this procedure. However, big games and heavy apps do support being moved to SD card. Also, do not remove the SD card from the phone since it can lead to the apps residing on the SD card not working and can also affect the stability of the phone. To remove an SD card, you should first format it as portable storage from Storage & USB menu in Settings.
