Default MicroSD card ~ Write Permissions?

We all know that since KitKat 4.4.2 Google has clamped down on writing to the MicroSD card.
To that I have a couple of questions I'm going to throw into the audience:-

1. Default Camera photo/video storage
Do we know for definite if the G3 allows you to save your photo and video files directly to the MicroSD card?
I can not remember seeing a choice between Internal or External.

2. Default File Manager writing to the MicroSD card
As file managers such as Solid Explorer etc. now no longer have write permissions (unless rooted) for the MicroSD card, the only file managers that can now write to MicroSD is those that have been given write permissions as in the default file manager.
Question being, again do we know for definite if the G3 default File Manager will allow you to copy to the MicroSD card?

If the answer is yes, then just how good is the G3's default File Manager?
.........I don't always get your questions right.... but you'll certainly know I've tried.

P.S. Many thanks for the Thanks votes. Thanks received are converted into a charitable donation.

Default RE:Default MicroSD card ~ Write Permissions

Yes and yes - both programs support writing to the SD card
I've used both features on my F400K
The explorer is not the best of its kind but it is OK

That's another tick in the box.

Similar to the user above, I can read/write to my 32gb FAT32 formatted MicroSDHC card with the G3 file explorer. I personally prefer ES File explorer myself, but I found no issues with their default file explorer. Hope that helps answer your question
