How to Set the SD Card as Default Camera Storage on 3.0 Motorola Phones Running Android 7.0 Nougat and Higher


  • To ensure that photos and videos taken by the Camera app save to the SD card by default instead of internal phone storage 



  1. Open the Camera app
  2. Tap the Settings Gear Icon in the upper right
  3. Tap Storage under Save settings
  4. Tap Memory Card

Additional Notes

If Memory Card doesn't show as an option, your SD Card is set to expand internal storage or isn't being read by the phone

Photos and videos will still backup to Google Photos with this storage setting enabled, as long as Google Photos backup has already been enabled 

If you already have photos and videos within the phone's internal storage that you'd like to move to the SD card, see How to Move Media to the SD Card on 3.0 Motorola Phones Running Android 7.0 Nougat or Higher
