Can I upgrade my storage?

Is it possible to upgrade my 16GB 2013 Nexus 7 storage to a 32 GB or more? Sadly the operating system takes up more storage space than I expected (a whole four gigs!) so now I only have 112 gigs of usable space, and I need a little more for what I use my tablet for. Any help at all would be appreciated, thank you in advance!

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

You can't do this. No way to change or upgrade internal memory. This memory (i.c. chips) are soldered to the mother board.

the other option is to see if you can buy the motherboard on ebay with 32 or 64GB and swap out your current with the new motherboard containing more space

You can't add more internal storage, but you could add some external storage. There are new flash drives that plug into the micro-usb port and also plug into a PC's usb port (but only one at a time.) They're called USB-OTG (On The Go) drives.

How does that work? Just a cable to connect to computer and then use tablet while connected.or is there a drive also that is portable?
