Hey guys, how’s it going? The pace at which we are buying new Smartphones has increased exponentially but even for new users. One of the biggest problems that everyone faces is how you transfer all of your data from your old phone to your new phone? I mean, everyone has that question, and many of you must find it difficult to do so. Well, that’s what this Blog is all about.
Today I’ll show you a couple of different apps and different ways in which you can easily backup and restore your phone and the data obviously along with it to make sure that your new phone feels just like home. Let’s get started.
Okay, so kicking things off, we have the simplest option out there: to use Google’s own backup solution. With the help of Google Drive and Google Photos, you see Google easily allows you to backup all of your phone data, photos, videos, even multimedia messages, and all of your configuration files. So, you know, for your settings and everything, all of that easily is backed up onto the cloud. Again, this is the simplest method to use because obviously, you will be logged in to your Google Account, which obviously just periodically backs up all of your data onto the cloud.
So unlike using any different app to transfer data and having a fear of having that data corrupted, your information is always securely saved on Google’s servers. Furthermore, because it’s on “Cloud,” you can access it from anywhere. In fact, personally, I also have the Google one membership, which is a very cost-effective way to increase your storage capacity. So if you’re someone who uses a phone like you know 128GB or 256GB of storage and you have all of that data, using Google One can help you store all of that data onto the cloud and then help you restore the data as well.
Now that’s where the downside is because when it comes to restoring and even just uploading the data, you need a good internet plan because of all of this. Because it’s uploaded onto the cloud, you will require a lot of good internet speed with a lot of bandwidth, so like in my case, my usual data gets up to be around 30-40 GB, and while I have a 1gbps connection at home, I don’t have a problem with that. But for you guys who rely on mobile data and have maybe 10 Mbps or 25 MPs of wi-fi speed at home, this might not be the idlest solution. So yeah, until and unless you have a great connection, maybe you can look at the other options that I’m about to list in this Article.
Super Backup and Restore
Okay, now one of the best Apps that I used for backing up and restoring data is from a mobile idea, and it’s called Super Backup and Restore. It offers a simple-to-use interface that lets you easily backup all your applications, SMS, Contacts, Call Logs, and Calendars. The data is backed up to a single folder that you can shift to your new phone. Once you’ve done that, simply tapping on restore will restore all of your data just like that. The App also comes with an option to schedule backups and upload them to cloud storage which is another plus.
Backup & Restore
Next up, we have Backup and Restore, which comes from the house of trust lock, which works on the same principle but with a premium focus on apps and is also quite snappy. As I said, the App focuses primarily on backing up all of your apps, and it does so quite effortlessly. You can do a batch backup, restore, transfer, and share your apps and data all by building a private wi-fi hotspot. Thus, eliminating the need for another app for transferring data from one phone to another.
Swift Backup and Restore
Now, one of the more modern solutions to come to the scene is Swift Backup and Restore, which is easily one of my most favorite and highly recommended apps out there. The interface is so good on the App, well it’s way too powerful in the basic mode. You can use the app to backup all your apps, SMS, call logs, and even your applied wallpapers. You can easily upload it to the cloud servers of your choice, such as Google Drive, Dropbox, Own Cloud, and much more. However, if your device is rooted, you can even restore app data, special app permissions, and all your wi-fi configurations as well. And that’s not all; if you’re a premium user, you can easily do a batch backup and even schedule them; also, it’s one of the rare apps out there that officially has support for android 11, which is a big plus.
Lastly, this list would not be complete without taking the name of Titanium Backup. There have been so many apps that I have tried to enter the scene, and a lot of them have been good, but none of them have been as good and as powerful as Titanium Backup. I know the dated interface might put up some users, but this App is way too powerful; not only can you use Titanium Backup to backup your apps with the app data, but you can also perform multiple actions.
You can unlink the App from the Play Store to receive updates if you want to. You can easily convert system apps to user apps or vice versa. You get app freezer, multiple user app data, and much much more. The App is paid and requires root access, but it’s well worth the price for sure, and that is something I can easily guarantee you.
Okay, so before wrapping things up, there is another point that I would like to make in the current scenario; every smartphone manufacturer knows that switching to a new phone can be quite hectic of a task for new users, which is why they’re also bundling their OEM apps that allow for an easy transfer from old phone to a new phone. You know, apps like Samsung smart switch, Oneplus switch, Opo’s clone phone, and every other brand out there have an app like this that you can easily use to clone all of your data from your old phone to your new phone. Now obviously, the new phone will have this thing pre-installed, but you will still have to install the same App on your old device, and I’ll leave a link down to all of the apps and their respective links, and well, that was it.
