How to transfer the data, contacts and applications from the old Android mobile to the new one without losing anything?

When we have two smartphones and we want to pass the information contained in one to the other it is usually very annoying, but do not stress more or waste so much time doing it. Here you will see by steps how to do it:

  • First you must check on the old smartphone that we have the option to backup enabled, this depends on the version of Android that your phone has, the most normal thing is that you find it in the option of backup and restore. You will see the option to copy the data that has to be in YES and the Gmail account that is being backed up.
  • Having checked this you can now turn on the new Android device, and set up your Google account so that you can synchronize all your files or information contained in it. Clearly you must be connected to Wifi.
  • When you link your google account, you will immediately see three options: “Backup an Android phone“,”Gmail Cloud Backup” Y “Copy from an iPhone“. Select option 1 and 2.
  • By selecting option 1 and 2, you know that you want to transfer your applications and information with NFC connection, in the event that one or both devices do not have the NFC connection, you will have to open the Google services application on the old phone.
  • Once the Google service application is open, you go to the option “Configure Nearby Device“, where clicking on the option that says”Let us begin“where you click on “Next”.
  • Clicking on next will show you that it is looking for nearby devices where you will simply have to select the name of your new device, that is, the one you are going to configure, and in turn confirm that the verification code is identical on both phones.

Once this is done, you will be able to see the applications that will be restored on the new phone, giving you the opportunity to restore all or only you can select the ones you want to restore. And voila, you have your applications on both phones.
