We are currently living in a digital booming era. Social media, digital lifestyle and technopreneur continue on the rise and new smartphones are being released every now and then. As such, we are creating, storing and consuming even more digital contents on our smart devices than ever. Therefore, whenever we upgrade to a new device, chances are we will have to look for ways to transfer data to the new phone.
With that being said, while there are plenty of cloud storage and streaming services around to offload your digital data away from your device. Sometimes, those services rely heavily on a stable and consistent Internet connection otherwise the experience will leave a bad aftertaste. Besides, not everyone has the luxury of accessing high-speed and unlimited quota Internet. Hence, today we will be taking a look at Wondershare’s dr.fone – Switch application and actually test it out by transfer data from Android to Android.
dr.fone – How to Transfer Data Between Android Phone
So you have just got your brand new Samsung Galaxy Note10+, and you are wondering how to transfer photos from Android to Android without having the need to uploading them to the cloud or figuring out the folder structure. Just follow these simple steps and you should be able to get the job done
Step 1: Download & Install dr.fone – Switch
The basic of the basics, you first need to download the dr.fone – Switch application from Wondershare. This is a handy little tool that is capable of doing more than just transferring data from Android to Android. It also supports data transfer from iOS to iOS, iOS to Android as well as Android to iOS.
The installation process is relatively straight-forward without prompting or trapping you into installing any of that unwanted software and bloatware.
Step 2: Launch dr.fone – Switch
After the installation, launching the application will bring you to the Switch interface where you can choose your source device, the data you want to transfer, as well as the destination device.
Data that can be transferred includes photos, videos, contacts, messages, call history, bookmarks, calendar, voice memo, contact blacklist, music, and apps.
Compared to trying to figure out different apps to transfer call logs, messages as well as the list of alarms, this all-in-one solution is extremely versatile.
Step 3: Connect The Devices
What Wondershare has done an absolutely great job is the implementation of tutorials for different phone brands. For example, we have connected the ASUS ZenFone 5 to the PC and dr.fone immediately prompts ASUS ZenUI’s guide to enable USB debugging in Developer’s options.
The guide even explains the most minor yet crucial approvals that are needed in order to reduce the user’s confusion.
So far we have yet to see any other applications that offer such a convenient solution especially for those who are non-tech-savvy. This makes the data transfer between phones an extremely easy task even without the help of IT experts.
Step 4: Select Data to Transfer
After getting both of your devices connected and recognised by dr.fone, now you just need to pick whichever data you would like to transfer to your spanking new phone. Since we have mentioned earlier that we will be transferring photos from Android to Android, we selected Photos and click on “Start Transfer”. Grab a coffee and observe the transfer process, as dr.fone completes the procedure, you may now enjoy your phone without having to leave anything behind.
