Tip & How-To about Android Apps
You can make your device less laggy by having your Camera save photos you've just taken/captured, to the device hard drive rather than the microSD card.
Why? Even though a microSD card may have a fast Write speed, your device's on-board hard drive is much faster. Doing so will make your camera faster, less laggy, and increase battery life because it can do the work easily.
After you take your photos, create a folder on your microSD card and just move the files from your device to the microSD card. Now, if something happens to your device.. like say you forget your passcode or your device crashes and accidentally wipes your on-board hard drive, your photos will be backed up onto your microSD card and can be easily accessible.
You may also want to move any other files, documents, etc from your device to your microSD card. The more space you free up on your device's hard drive the more responsive that device will be. This is also the same way your Windows computer reacts when you free up space on the computer's hard drive by moving files to backup storage
You can do this also with an OTG port, the micro USB port that you use to charge your phone. If you device allows you to do so, you can plug in a microSD adapter into that micro USB charging port and then move your files onto any microSD or just use a micro USB flash drive.

Using the camera as a source, instead of a card reader (but we really, really suggest using a card reader)
