Default Can i do partition internal storage ?

Hi.
Can i make something like partition on internal storage? i have i9300 16GB internal and it woyld me nice to make 2-3 partition like C, D, E for games, apps, photo. Or game and apps, photo, rest and maybe protect before changing roms. I liek to change roms but its so bored installing all the times the same apps.
Also i want to buy mini sd card but waiting for answer bcs i dont know what to buy and ill install every apps and game on sd card so before change rom ill still have on sd card.

Don't mess with the internal storage, it isn't an sd card and you'll hard brick the phone.

Put everything on your external sd, leave the internal as empty as possible -this will reduce wear on the nand memory.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

When changing roms you still would have to reinstall all games, nevermind if on internal or external sd. Just use Titanium Backup to make it easy and as said don't touch internal memory!

I don't think so as the base app or at least some parts is still installed in internal memory whereas e. G. Save games you could copy to external and copy back later if you can find the files.

Nope. The apk will be on the internal sd, u can only put the DATA not apk in the ext sd.
