    But how can i make my fone to download files to sd card on tecno w3. and i can i make obb files on my sd card to work.

    1. It's simple, go to phone settings, click on storage, then select SD card as default storage.

      As for OBB file, every Android phone comes with OBB folder. So if you are downloading a game that requires obb files, just copy the file to the obb folder on your phone and it will work
