Storage expansion problem with sdcard... ZTE Maven 3

Help. 

Folks I added a 32gb sdcard and followed the Android protocols to convert that to "internal storage" and the storage field in settings shows 40gb internal storage but 7.87 used.  HOWEVER, I still cannot add apps I keep getting the message that space is low and I need to delete apps.  What gives? Please help. 

Best always,

The maven series does not support apps being loaded on the sd card.

Not really ZTE and its cheap phones are pretty locked down really.

Get a new phone with more than 8gb on storage.  For 29.95 what did you expect?

Phones can be had with 16gb or more for under 100 bucks

The original Maven allowed apps to be moved to the SD card. I still am using it. I also have this Maven 3 now too, but it is almost a brick.

Thats because the maven 1 is on lollipop aka android 5.1.  With Marshmallow aka 6.0 Google changed the file system and the OEM's and App devs seized the chance to not use sd cards for app storage.
