This is complete and utter bull****. As someone who uses FolderSync and ES File Explorer a lot this bothers me to no end. Is Google trying to be like Apple and telling me what I can do with my device?
Make it at least optional in the settings. I don't understand this decision other than make SD cards and apps that work with it unattractive to users. I don't feel like rooting my brand new phone that still got warranty. Especially with that fancy eFuse thing Samsung put in their newer devices
Oh god, ever since I got this phone I thought my SD Card wasn't working properly anymore (I upgraded from an S4 that was o 4.3).
I use ES File Manager a lot. When I download things, I want to move them tk the SD Card. But all moving and file creation operations have failed on the SD Card. Now I know why. I wasn't aware there were SD changes on 4.4.
What a d**k move from Google. I want control over my phone. At least give me a way to change this without having to root and other magical voyages.
