Five different techniques can help Android users in making the transferring data process easier:
1: Downloading the data transferring applications before making the transfer.
2: Taking help from Google in transferring the data.
3: Making use of the NFC connection.
4: Using the computer to copy the data.
5: Using a third-party application or service to transfer the data.
1: Data Transferring by Device-Specific Applications:
There are various applications available to Android users on the Google play store to allow the transfer of data from their old phones to their new ones. These applications are SHAREit, Samsung Smart Switch, Xender, Send Anywhere, AirDroid, AirMore, Zapya, Bluetooth File Transfer, LG Mobile Switch, and Huawei Backup. If an Android user decides to opt for this option, he can simply download any application of his choice, as long as it is compatible with his device, and make the transfer easy.
2: Data Transferring by Google Account:
Another method of data transfer is by using a Google account. To allow Google to make the transfer, the user needs to follow the following steps:
- First of all, go to the Settings page on the old Android phone.
- Then scroll down the menu, and select the option “Back up and reset”.
- Then tap the “Back up my data” option, and further activate the option to allow the backup of data.
At this point, the data is backed up on the old Android device, now the user would follow these steps:
- Go to the settings page on the new Android phone.
- Then scroll down the menu to select the option “Backup and reset”.
- Then select the option “Automatic restore” to allow the transfer of the backed up data to the new phone.
3: Data Transfer by NFC Connection:
NFC, short for Near Field Communication, is a connection that allows the wireless transfer of data from one Android device to the other. All the user needs to do is put both the NFC compatible Android phones side by side and follow these steps:
- Go to the home screen and swipe up from the top of the screen to go to the notification bar.
- Then click on the logo of “NFC” to activate the connection.
4: Data Transfer by Computer:
To transfer data using a computer, the user would need to follow these steps:
- Connect the old Android phone by its USB cable to the computer.
- Then a window will appear into which the entire data from the old phone will be copy-pasted in a separate folder.
- After that, plug in the new phone with its USB cable. A new window will appear into which all the transferred data from the old phone will be copy-pasted to be transferred to the new phone.
