This is a dead simple mod to do.
All it took was a door hinge, some 4-hour epoxy, and a hacksaw.

That's pretty nifty. Someone on this planet would enjoy having one of those things.

Also, your phone looks quite similar to mine. It's not exactly the same, but it's close.
Course clear! You got a card.

I have an LG Leon. It's not the highest-end smart phone, but I got a good deal on it, and at the time it felt like a massive upgrade over my dumb phone. I'll probably get a new phone in the next few months, though. Having only 8 GB of storage space fills up rapidly, and it gets annoying to have to delete lots of stuff every time I need to update an app.

I know how that goes.
The storage isn't that great on this either.
Though finding where they hid the SD card slot helps greatly.
Fortunately, most of my apps can be ran from SD.
If I was able to root this thing, I could even delete the default apps I never use and install the rest to SD.
It kinda sucks actually. 8gb internal storage, but only 2 remain after the defaults.
I'm betting your phone isn't much different than mine. Check inside the battery compartment. That's where I found a micro SD slot on mine. A 64gb card should be cheaper than a new phone.
Then just look through the apps section of settings and move everything possible to sd.

from what i'm reading, the lg leon supports up to 32GB microsd cards. that seems to be an oddly common limit on devices like this; my galaxy tab 4 and my generic mp3 player only support 32GB cards, for what that's worth.

So what can be superior when compared with paying out half the price for brand name children?
wow, if brand name children are on sale, maybe i can stop buying all these cheap knockoff children

OK... even I'll admit that the Oakland Raiders' performance might be a valid reason to use the interesting words.

I actually see that a lot.
It's odd. It usually goes far past that.

Thanks for the tip. It seems that my LG Leon does indeed have a Micro SD slot hidden inside. If I install one of those cards, I'll probably be able to extend my phone's useful life by a few months.

8 GB sounded like a lot when I bought my phone, but it fills up fast - 4+ GB for the operating system, and 2+ GB for apps gives you only a gigabyte or two to work with.

As for the SD size limit, pretty much every computing device has some constraints on the memory and storage devices it can handle. 32 GB is a smaller cap than I would've expected, though.

Just be sure that your apps can be ran from sd.
I know firefox,skype,Pokemon go,hulu and netflix can be.
Pokemon go being quite massive, it is good that it can be moved.

Pokemon Go is a massive game - it's definitely the biggest offender here. I was running into storage issues even before I installed Pokemon Go, though - I had to delete some apps and photos just to install the game.
