Having a new HP Smartphone is fun, but what makes us a little annoyed is when you have to move all your data from your old Android Smartphone to your new Android Smartphone. Most likely, there is some data that you won’t move, because the process of moving all data to a new Android phone is not as simple as copying and pasting.
And in this article I will guide you on how to easily transfer almost all of your data to a new HP smartphone in the right way. That includes moving all your SMS, contacts, chats, call logs, media files, configurations, passwords, applications, and application data.
Use a Factory Default Data Migration Application
Let’s try the all-in-one option first before the standard method, however this is limited to certain smartphones and manufacturers.
Top manufacturers like Samsung, HTC, and LG, etc. Offers a special application to transfer your data from your current HP Smartphone (including iPhone) to their Android Smartphone, usually their flagship series. This application can migrate messages, contacts, media files, calendar entries, device settings, application data, and more.
You only need to connect the two HP Smartphones via Wi-Fi, or use a USB OTG cable.
Here are some apps by popular Android manufacturers:
If your HP Smartphone manufacturer is not in the above list, then you can also use another application, who knows it works the same as the official manufacturer’s output.
Moving Settings & App data
HP Android Smartphones have a built-in backup option to back up your settings, Wi-Fi passwords, bookmarks, and application data to Google servers. Here’s how to activate it:
- Open Settings Mobile and go to Backup & Reset.
- Here activate the options Back up My Data and then select Google account from the options Backup Account.
Now, the data will be synced to Google servers and associated with the Google account you selected. Furthermore, when you log into your new mobile using that Google account, you will be asked to restore or restore your data.
Move photos & videos
I personally like the manual method of transferring photos and videos to PC first (using a USB cable) and then transferring them to a new mobile. However, if you prefer an online solution for reasons of not having a Computer, then Google Photos can be a good choice. Because Google Photos offers unlimited storage space for photos and videos.
Just download the Google Photos Android app and let it sync all your photos and videos to Google cloud storage.
By default, Google Photos only backs up the camera folder. Although you can also make backups to other folders:
- Tap the main menu Google Photos in the top left corner and select Device Folder.
- Now select the folders you wish to sync.
You can install the Google Photos app on your new HP Smartphone to view and download content.
If you are not comfortable syncing all your photos and videos to Google’s servers, then there is an alternative option to use the PhotoSync app. It can transfer your photos and videos via local Wi-Fi. Using this method, data will be transferred locally, no third party servers are involved.
- Install it PhotoSync on both the HP Smartphone and open it Settings on the old cellphone.
- Tap here Quick Transfer and select New mobile to start the transfer process.
Moving Music or Songs
The manual method of moving to PC and then new Mobile works fine for music files too. However, you can also use Google Play Music which allows you to upload up to 50,000 private song tracks.
All your songs uploaded to Google Play Music will be available on your new device as soon as you install Google Play Music. And you can also download songs to listen to them offline.
Or use other alternatives with the application Send Anywhere, because this application is a good choice for moving files to your new mobile. It uses Wi-Fi direct to share any type of file between two HP Smartphones over a local Wi-Fi connection. You can transfer music files, documents, and even photos and videos (it’s also a great alternative to PhotoSync).
Moving Contacts & Messages
Although, there are several ways to move contacts and messages to your new Mobile but I will share just a simple app which gets the job done easily. Phone Copier is a tiny application that allows you to share contacts and SMS on your smartphone with other smartphones via Bluetooth.
- You have to download Phone Copier on both HP Smartphones and turn on Bluetooth.
- Now on your new Smartphone, tap Bluetooth icon and select Import.
- After the disclaimer, it will search for the nearest Bluetooth device and you can select the target smartphone to start the transfer process.
Once transferred, the app will automatically place the contacts and messages in the right places.
Move data in a web browser
Most of the web popular browser have a cloud storage account to sync all browser data. For example, Chrome syncs all data to your Google account, and both Firefox and Opera offer accounts to sync data. Make sure you use this account for your browser to sync all data to your new HP smartphone.
Transfer all HP data with CLONEit
To transfer your complete data from old HP Smartphone to new and fast via WiFi, use the app CLONEit may be a good choice. This is a completely free app and doesn’t come with any ads that will annoy you like other apps. However, depending on your HP Smartphone manufacturer, this may not be suitable for you. Don’t worry, though, in most cases, it will work.
And when I say it can transfer all data, that means is you can transfer contacts, call logs, SMS, MMS, all kinds of media files, apps, app data, system settings, Wifi networks and passwords, bookmarks and more.
To use this application, you only need to install it on both of your mobile devices and tap “Receiver“On a new HP Smartphone and”Sender”On an old smartphone (make sure they are both connected to the same Wi-Fi). You will be asked to select the data you wish to transfer. Once selected, all data will transfer at reliable speeds of up to 20MB / s.
Ready to move data from your old cellphone to your new cellphone?
The above transfer methods will make it easy to move to your new device and take your data with you. I would recommend you to try using the all-in-one application by your HP Smartphone manufacturer or the CLONEit application to easily transfer all data very easily. However, if that doesn’t work for you then you can always transfer the data separately using the above methods.
