Android comes from Open Source and it should stay open for the user. The user should decide if apps are allowed to get write access or not. Similar to the "install apps from unknown sources".

I see no security reason rater than pushing the user to buy new devices with more onboard memory. Its absolutely no-go to remove such fundamental feature from one day to another. I would downgrade to get feature back .... but even this is not possible.

For instance, ES File Explorer can move, cut, paste, rename and delete things just fine. And no, I'm not rooted.

Well the time has come: ES File Explorer recently stopped having the ability to write to the microSD card in my Samsung tablet, SM-T900 Tab Pro 12.2. Same is true for HD File Manager. Both worked fine untile recently.

Samsung My Files app does still work. Probably the only Samsung app i will ever use if i can help it.

I've been hearing more people with this issue. It seems the last Android update broke it. (Not simply KitKat as it worked for quite a while, but the most recent small ones.)

Reminds me once more why I don't update unless something's broken...
