- As soon as the transfer is completed successfully, you will be notified. Simply disconnect both the devices and access your data.
Perform a Selective Android to Android Transfer
Instead of transferring all data at once, if you wish to perform a selective transfer, then try dr.fone – Transfer (Android). It is an Android device manager that will let you preview the data stored on your device. Later, you can select any file and transfer it to your computer (Windows/Mac) or any other smartphone (Android/iPhone). To perform this seamless Android to Android transfer, these steps can be followed.
- Launch the dr.fone toolkit and go to its “Transfer” section. Also, connect both the Android devices to your system.
- Select the source device to start with and go to any tab of your choice. As you can see, there are different tabs for various data types, like Photos, Videos, Music, and so on.
- Let’s suppose we wish to transfer photos. In this case, go to the “Photos” tab and view all the pictures that are saved on your phone under different categories.
- From here, you can simply select the photos you wish to transfer. Click on the export button on the toolbar and transfer the photos directly to the connected device.
- In the same way, you can transfer music, videos, apps, and more. To transfer contacts and messages, you can visit the Information tab.
Backup and Restore Data using your Google Account
As you know, all the Android devices are connected to a Google account. Therefore, you can simply take a backup of your data on your Google account and later restore it. Though, if you have a lot of content saved on your phone, then you need to make sure that there is enough free space on your Google account. By default, every user gets 15 GB of free space, but you can later upgrade your account and buy more space.
- Unlock your existing device and go to its Settings > Backup & Restore. From here, go to the Backup option and turn it on.
- You can select the type of data that you wish to save. To take an immediate backup, click on the “Backup Now” button. If you want, you can enable the automatic restore option from here as well.
- Wait for a while and maintain a stable internet connection as your phone would back-up its data.
- You can also sync your data with your Google account as well. To do this, go to your device Settings > Accounts > Google and turn on the syncing option for different types of data.
- Now, turn on your new Android device. While setting up the device for the first time, sign-in with the same Google account.
- You will be provided an option to restore your phone from an existing backup. Simply select the backup file of your choice and restore your data to a new device.
While you can perform a wireless Android to Android transfer with this method, it provides a more time-consuming solution. Also, it can consume a large chunk of your Google account storage.
Transfer your Data from Android to Android Manually
As you know, we can easily use our Android device as any other media storage. In this way, you can first manually save your data from Android to your PC and later send it to the target device. Needless to say, it will consume more time and might tamper with the security level of your phone. Also, you can only transfer media files and some documents with this approach as you can’t really switch your device entirely.
- Firstly, connect your source device to your PC and choose to perform a media (or file) transfer.
- Once the device is detected, its icon will be displayed in Windows Explorer. Just visit the device storage and manually copy the data of your choice
- Now, go to any other safe location on your computer and paste this content.
- Once it is done, safely remove the phone and connect your target device instead.
- Follow the same drill again. Copy the data from your computer and manually paste it on the target device storage.
- In the end, you can just safely remove the connected Android phone and use it the way you like.
Now when you know four different ways to transfer data from Android to Android, you can easily switch your device. Out of all these options, dr.fone provides the best solution. To directly transfer all data at once, simply give dr.fone – Switch a try. If you want to perform a selective transfer, then dr.fone – Transfer (Android) would be a recommended pick.
