You can easily move date by connecting to a PC.
Also if you dont have a PC,
then
1.long press on the folder you need to move. [You will get a cut option, a
symbol]

2.Now go to SD card and open he folder where you want to move the file
3.Just below the notification area, you could see a paste symbol.
4. Click on it to start transfer.
Go to
Settings>Storage
then you could see where you had actually loss the space.

One click root will work only for some models. Unfortunately your device
include in that.

So without rooting you cant increase internal storage by taking a partition

SD card.
I had searched a lot for finding the root tools for your device, but not fou
