Guide to Suitable Phone State
#8
If I were you, I'd use the SD card. You can replace the SD without needing to get a new phone, so why would you want to write flash and shorten the device lifetime? With a good SD the speed doesn't make a significant difference in responsiveness of the phone interface, and what you're using comes from RAM either way.

The MicroSD card slot in the PPP is not positioned in a way that you can readily remove a card while the phone is powered on, so practically speaking the card lives in the phone long term.

You're welcome to do what you want with your device, but I don't think "most phones work this other way" is a good argument for why it should be that way. Most modern high-end phones don't even HAVE removable storage - likely because selling more internal flash is an easy way to get customers to pay as much as they are able for devices (aka perfect price discrimination).

You can find the settings for the bootloader in /boot.
