    Storage problems

    I recently purchased a pro 7d. This is my first android device. The tablet seems to be working fine except for internal storage. I downloaded 3 games from Play store. After that, the native apps began updating, but before it finished, I got an error message about not having enough storage to complete the operation. What???. The tablet supposed to have 16gb of storage. Trying to figure out why I was getting this message, I went into Settings/Storage and found that the Internal storage (Total space) was only showing .98gb. That can't be right, can it? Under that, Apps (App data & media content) was showing around 870mb (don't remember exactly). Under that, Nand Flash was showing Total space 13gb. After that I went to Apps in the settings and started clicking on them and saw the option to move to SD card. I didn't have a SD card inserted so I didn't choose the option. After hours of frustration, I went back to Settings/Apps and decided to try the option of moving to SD card. I thought that I would probably get an error message or a prompt to insert a SD card, but to my surprise, it worked! All the Apps that had the option to move, I moved them. Low and behold, the not enough storage message disappeared and the rest of the Apps that couldn't update before finished updating. Apparently the device has an internal SD card mounted using almost all of the total storage. That would be fine if there was an option of directing downloads to it instead of the default download directory with a puny .98gb of storage.

    So, with all that said, I have 3 questions:
    1. Is this going to be the norm for this device?
    2. Am I not going to be able to use the whole 13gb of storage without jumping through hoops?

    Seems like a poor setup to me. Or,
    3. Is there something wrong with the tablet?

    1. Yes. You might be able to set its default download location to the 'SD storage'
    2. Maybe.
    3. Nothing is wrong with the Tablet. It's not ideal, but nothing is amiss.

    Thanks Macktion. After getting 2 replies on 2 other forums telling me the same thing, I am better satisfied now. I was about to take the tablet back for a refund. Guess my test drive wasn't long enough.
