On my desktop machine, I use bind mounts instead of symlinks for this
sort of thing (where I want most stuff on my SSD, but e.g. films on my
HDD). I don't know if that would work in this situation? I think the
command would be:
sudo mount --bind /media/phablet/$SD/Downloads /home/phablet/Downloads
or in /etc/fstab, to make it permanent:
/media/phablet/$SD/Downloads /home/phablet/Downloads none bind 0 0
(Caveat: I haven't tried this on my Ubuntu phone, this is just what I do
on my desktop)

You could use a symlink for the folder Downloads (man ln).
That won't work, see https://launchpad.net/bugs/1549433.

(Sorry if this is a FAQ, I couldn't find it online)
In my BQ4.5 I have an SD card with lots of space and I want to make the
browser store downloads in /media/phablet/$SD/Downloads (which was created
automatically when I had the phone format the card), NOT in the default
I find no such setting in the browser or system prefs, does anyone know
how to do this?
There's no way of doing this that I know of, unfortunately.
