Yeps. When I insert the micro SD card, I can choose to format it as internal storage which merges the mSD card storage with the internal storage capacity. This is also the reason why I didn't buy the 4GB RAM with 64G storage since I've got a spare mSD card. Not worth paying the extra money for just 1GB RAM.

I wonder what's the difference between formatting it as internal storage and using it as an external storage apart from not being able to use the mSD on other devices. Will formatting as internal storage boost the reading speed?

Update:
I googled a bit and found the answers to my questions.

Source: https://fossbytes.com/android-sd-car...table-storage/

Some important things to consider

SD cards are slow

This is the painful reality of these tiny memory chips. Even though they can store tons of data, theyíre slower than the internal storage and have a limited number of read-write cycles. Using SD card as a permanent storage would require more frequent read/write operation, and it would degrade its performance over time.

Android does a performance benchmark of your SD card to make sure itís fast enough to match the internal memory. It warns about the performance of the external storage and may even decline to adopt if the SD card is extremely slow.
Your Android will literally adopt the storage

With Adoptable Storage, Android encrypts the external SD card being used as an internal storage, thus, it gets tied to a specific Android device. The key used to encrypt the data on the SD card is stored on the Android deviceís internal memory. So, it is not possible to mount an adopted storage to another device because of its encrypted nature.

However, you can remove the storage from your device and put it back on. The device will remember the details about the apps installed on the adopted SD card to reverse the settings with the adopted storage is connected later on. This way you can use another SD card also.

Always make sure, you donít remove the adopted SD card without following the unmount procedure, otherwise, the storage media might get corrupted.

How to make the SD card portable again?

If you want, you can roll back the changes made by the Adoptable Storage feature. Follow the steps mentioned below:

Redo the option to: Format SD card as internal then tap Format. Now, you can use the SD card as portable storage and mount it on any other Android device.
Is the Mi Pad 4 able to use Adoptable Storage? I know not all android devices allows this function.

I'm looking at the Pad 4 and the Pad Plus (64GB VS 128GB) cause I do not want to run out of space if I'm not able to install apps on the SD Card.

Finer only accept full payment? I thought qoo10 can go by installment by DBS bank?
There is a minimum spend before you can use installments.

I bgt with pre download playstore. In the end i uninstalled it and diy. Waste money. Pm them on qoo10 also no reply

Ya, sealed set is better considering that there are many complaints about their pre installed playstore.
downloaded and Installed the google installer from here https://en.miui.com/thread-3099132-1-1.html, just follow the instruction to install and allow all permission for all Google Play Store, Google Framework and other Google Play Store related Apps, no issue at all.
I bought my Mipad 4 Wifi 4/64 from finer at qoo10
