It is possible to use an SSD or HDD as storage with an Android smartphone, but it requires some additional hardware and setup. Here are the general steps to follow:
1. First, you will need to purchase an external enclosure for the SSD or HDD that is compatible with your smartphone. There are many options available, and you should make sure to choose one that is compatible with your smartphone's USB port.
2. Once you have the enclosure, you will need to insert the SSD or HDD into the enclosure and connect it to your smartphone using a USB cable.
3. When you first connect the drive to your smartphone, you may need to format it in order to use it. You can do this by going to "Settings > Storage > Format as internal storage." Keep in mind that formatting the drive will erase all data on it, so you must make sure to back-up/copy-store all your important data first.
4. After formatting the drive, you should be able to use it as additional storage for your smartphone. You can move files and apps to the drive to free up space on your smartphone's internal storage.
Make sure that using an SSD or HDD as storage with an Android smartphone may not be as fast as using the smartphone's internal storage, and it may also require more power, which can drain the battery faster. Moreover, if you disconnect the drive from your smartphone, any apps or data stored on it will not be accessible until you reconnect the drive.
My personal suggestion would be to use a cloud service for storage since that will also protect you from any physical damage to your storage devices and will keep your data available to you anytime from anywhere via Internet.
I find that the harder I work, the more luck I seem to have.
