Samsung Galaxy S4: How to Change Default Storage in the Camera App in Android 4.4 Kitkat

Samsung Galaxy SIV has been equipped with the SD card slot that will allow you to expand your storage and prevent the internal storage fully loaded quickly by inserting an SD card to your phone. If you have already inserted an SD card to your phone, then you can set it as the default storage in some apps. One of apps that will let you to change the default storage is the Camera app. You can set this app to save all pictures you take with the Camera app to the internal storage or to the SD card.



How to change default storage in the Camera app?
If you wish to switch between the internal storage and the SD card as the default storage in the Camera app, then you can use the following steps:
  1. Open the Camera app.
  2. Tap the Settings icon to view more options.
  3. Tap the Settings icon to enter the settings menu
  4. Tap the Settings tab.
  5. Scroll down to find Storage, then tap it. You'll see two options available:
    • Device: select this option if you want to save the picture you take with the Camera in the internal storage.
    • Memory card: select this option if you want to save the picture you take with the Camera in the SD card. If you've chosen this option then the SD card icon will be displayed in the viewfinder screen.
  6. Once done, all pictures taken by the Camera app will be saved to the selected storage.

If you're like me, I prefer to set the SD card as the default storage in the Camera app. As we've known, for some users photo files often make the internal storage run out free space quickly. By setting the default storage to SD card, you can keep your internal storage has free space enough to make your phone works well and not encountering any problem caused by low internal storage.
