Transferring data from Android to Android is not that complicated. In fact, there are a few ways to do that. Regardless of the phone brand, the following methods would work. The first one is using a microSD card. This is recommended if you want the process to be hassle-free. However, not every Smartphone has microSD card support. Some don’t have a memory card slot because the internal storage spaces are already spacious. If this is the case with you, then consider the following tricks.

Google backup

Google backup provides an easy solution to transfer data between Android devices. Google has a wide selection of tools that can help you carry out different tasks. Google backup is one of the examples. All it takes is a Google account. During an Android phone setup, we’re usually prompted to sign into a Google account or create a new one. There are many benefits of having an account. Doing backup will be so easy because one account can save various data and settings. Go to ‘Settings’, and then tap the ‘Backup and Reset’ menu. There are a few options that will appear on the page. Continue by tapping ‘Back Up My Data’. Here you can create a backup of the files stored on your phone. Whenever you switch to a new Android device, just login to the same account, so that you can retrieve the data.

Bluetooth can help transfer data between Android devices although it’s a little time consuming. We’re sure you know how Bluetooth works already. To do this, you need two Android devices with Bluetooth connections. The transfer rate can be slow or fast depending on the versions of Bluetooth on both devices. The menu can be found in ‘Settings’. Bluetooth usually has a dedicated page to allow easy transfer. You just need to enable it on both and use the search feature to detect the other device. It can also be started from the file you want to transfer. For example, you want to transfer a photo. All you have to do is go to gallery, mark the photo, find the transfer options (usually on top of the screen), then and select Bluetooth. (Also read: How to Set Up a VPN on Android)

The next step is connecting the two Android devices to the laptop. Basically, the laptop works as a hub that channels transfer between the phones. Wait until the devices are recognized. You will see the devices’ names adjacent to each other with types of content in between (call logs, SMS, music, videos, contacts, etc). Just check any types of files you wish to transfer. After that, click on the ‘Start Transfer’ button below the field. That’s all you have to do. The app will initiate the transfer process, and wait until it’s completed. Luckily, Android is not the only platform that Mobiletrans supports. You can also transfer data for iOS and Windows phones.
