LG G5 and Galaxy S7 will not support Adoptable Storage

One of the noted Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS’s features is ‘Adoptable Storage’ Feature which uses MicroSD storage as an internal storage. As a result, you can install apps on the card.


But it doesn’t look like upcoming units LG G5 and Samsung Galaxy S7 will be supporting this feature, despite providing a MicroSD access. According to Android Central who tried out the G5 at MWC, they weren’t able to get the adoptable storage working on the unit. Same happened with the S7. Rather it lets the MicroSD card to be used only for file and media storage.

It shouldn’t be surprising if at some point someone will re-enable this feature but it’s strange that both brands have this disabled by default. One may ask how many people will use this feature at least for now? With internal storage increasing towards to 64GB and possibly more in the near future.
