LG Stylo 5: transfer apps to sd

Ive had the Stylo 2 for 3 years then finally upgraded to this stylo 5. I cannot transfer apps to sd card like on the 2. I searched google and not much about it. I did the developer option where it has the force allow apps on sd and that did not work either. Im just not understanding why a spec would be "up to 1tb external sd expansion" w/o being able to store the largest files (apps) on the sd like every other phone I've had. Someone please help. I do lo e this phone but that is a major pain in the a$$.

Very true. I'm thinking it would be a software update. Its up to LG if they want the phone to support that option

Then lg needs to fix this because before the last update i was able to see sd card when hooking up phone to pc and now it doesnt even show anymore and i was able to move apps to pc with a app but no longer grrrrr this is agravvating running out of storage seeing how i have a 256 gb sd card i should have plenty of storage

I totally agree. I just don't understand why LG thought this was a good idea... Expandable storage up to Itb and they take out main thing everyone uses sd for. I'm backing mine up and gonna reset and see what happens.
