Default does xperia s needs link2sd to increase space for apps and games?

hey all, i have been using link2sd on my previous phones such as lg optimus one, xperia mini pro and so on and they have really quite low internal memory (400mb and below) and i have been using link2sd all the time to link all my desired apps and games to sd card.

and i know xperia s has an internal memory of 32gb so does it need link2sd for apps and games or 32gb are more than enough to put all our 100 apps and games (for example) ?

im not quite sure how a phone without memory card works such as xperia s who has 32gb internal storage, i mean, does the 32gb storage are all for apps and games??

im gonna buy xperia s later and i really want to know

U dnt need link2sd...
The 32 gb is partitioned as
2Gb- internal memory (same as internal memory of other cells, u can only store apps in it, not media)
26 Gb- sd card memory( same as external memory card, u can store media as well as apps)
1 Gb- data ( only for rooted users, system application are stored in it)
Rest memory is unudable in any way.


Press thanks!!

so your saying 2gb for apps is enough?

the problem is, some apps cant be moved to sdcard. so im just afraid that 2gb will not be enough for the apps and games that i installed that cant be moved to sd.

anyway thanks. xperia s doesnt need to create a second partition for link2sd then

Hello,

I think it's dangerous to use link2sd on this phone (No sd slot). I use it on a HTC HD2 and i'ts very cool because it have slow memory and a sd memory, but not on a XPERIA S. I use big game on XPERIA (GTA III - GTA vice City..) and you can move most of the apps on the "sd memory" (26 go). i have more than a hundred app and 800 mo on the 2 go use in the internal memory

Sorry for my bad English
Phone : HTC HD2 - Sony XPERIA S - XPERIA Z1 Compact
ROM: KitSlim_AMG [Evo 9]
NAND Loader: Magldr 1.13
Recovery: ClockworkMod Recovery 5.0.2.6
I use google traduction

I have never moved a single app to the sd storage on my Xperia s and I have about 90 apps without system apps.
And some are large games like GTA.

2gb is more thn enough!!
Moreover data for games and apps tat can b moved are stored in sd memory..
In short u can easily store around 130apps...
I guess u dnt need more thn that

Default No, no need

People above are right. You have 2 GB to install apps and all stuff related with system.
So you don't need link2sd.
