  1. Honor 9lite has facility to move images, videos from Gallery’s album to another Album?? Plz tell me. No need to go in file manager for each time to moving here and there.

    • Hello Vishwas,

      honor 9 lite from gallery can only move images and videos in the album created from the gallery only. If you want to images and videos to some pre-existed album then it not. For example, you want to move media files to pre-existed WhatsApp image folder then u need to do it from the file manager. In short, the answer is No…
