Hi all,

I'm thinking about buying a Find 7 or 7a, but the only thing I think is lame is the partition where you only get 3GB of app storage (which is probably not enough to play a modern game), can any of you confirm this is the case and if it is, will this be changeable by some smart XDA-user?

Modern games already support putting the majority of their data onto the sd card. It's only a select few poorly authored games that use /data and not /sdcard for all data.

As much as I dislike that Oppo has stuck with the legacy storage configuration, the reality is that it doesn't affect most users. I have over 1GB free on /data myself for example, in fact if anything I'm annoyed I can't use that for /sdcard.

There's a solution I've got in mind but haven't had the time to work on as I'm still trying to finish basic device bringup with Omni and general non-device-specific Omni stuff.

Can you still move apps if you're on KitKat? I'm assuming, no?
