I figured out that with a rooted device you can trick the tablet into using the extsdcard. Works on both my tab 4 7 and tab 4 10.1. A simple script that has a single command as follows. mount -o bind /storage/emulated/0 /mnt/media_rw/extSdCard. When this is run at boot and I uninstall an app and reinstall, I gain free space on the internal card. It does however seem that the external doesn't show it being there. So I think it screws up the actual reported free space on the external. A better solution or improvement would be appreciated. enjoy.

not sure
Not sure if it worked. And to let you know, I believe the internal could be the emu0lated one. And the storage low sfill comes up.

You could use foldermount app in the play store....at least for now until a better option comes around... It was a great help for the lg optimus f3....which by the way has 2gb internal...not to bash on it completely it had battery life like an old flip phone
