Easiest Way to Transfer Data between Android and iPhone X/8/7P/6S

May. . Posted by to Android Topic

Android and iOS are the most popular mobile operating systems on the planet for the past 4 years. I can still remember my first smartphone was Samsung I9505 built on Android 2.1. The device has a lot of new features that Nokia's device can't offer, which was the dominator at that time. I first get stared with Samsung Galaxy, since then changed my phone at a yearly basis from HTC Wildfire to Motorola Droid to Sony Xperia Z3. As you can see from the list, I am a loyal fan of Android based smartphones. However, I figured out recently that it's the time for a change now when I had a chance to touch an iPhone 6 Plus.

I purchased an iPhone 6 Plus yesterday from local retail store. When I got the device first working, I realized the new iPhone and my old phones are totally two different things. The first thing I have to do is to transfer content and files from my old phone, such as contacts, text messages, photos, videos and music. There are almost 700+ contacts and 500+ messages on my Xperia Z3. It would be hours to do it manually to complete the transfer process. Luckily, a close friend suggested me an automated way to get the job done.

Phone Transfer is a powerful desktop tool that provides a fast and reliable way to transfer data from one smartphone to another, including iPhone, Android phone and Symbian based phones. Once the software detects your device, it will transfer the selected items automatically in background. Usually, it only takes a few minutes to finish the task with several mouse clicks, which is a huge advantage regarding the time needed for manual transfer.
