Xiaomi smartphones from China are renowned for their generous internal storage capacity, which can range from 16GB to 128GB, depending on the device’s price. However, users with lower storage capacities may have to delete old applications before they can download new ones. Furthermore, downloading large files such as videos, songs, and APK files on the Xiaomi Browser can be inconvenient due to space constraints. Fortunately, the MIUI Browser features a practical solution: saving downloads to the SD card. In this article, we will explore two ways to save downloads to an SD card on Xiaomi.
Method One: Settings
1. Open the Settings app on your Xiaomi phone and select “System application.”
2. Scroll down until you find “Browsers,” and click on it
3. Scroll down again until you find “Advanced” settings
4. Change the “Download location” to the SD card or memory card.
Now, any downloaded files from the Browser will automatically save to the SD card in the folder you specified earlier.
Method Two: Browser App Settings
1. Open the Browser app on your Xiaomi device
2. Click on “Settings,” and then “Advanced.”
3. Change the “Download location” to the SD card.
Using either of these methods, you can download files of any size without worrying about internal storage constraints. However, it is important to note that for now, these settings only apply to downloads from the Browser app. You cannot store your applications and downloads from the Play Store on the SD card, as Xiaomi smartphones cannot yet move applications in internal memory to the SD card. Xiaomi believes that applications stored in the internal memory perform better than those stored externally.
In conclusion, if you’re dealing with a lack of storage space on your Xiaomi smartphone, moving your Browser downloads to an SD card is an easy solution. Follow either of the above methods, and you’ll never have to worry about running out of space for large downloads on your Xiaomi phone again.
