You can can transfer images, videos, songs, documents, messages, contacts, call history, calendar events, notes, alarms, apps, the list is endless.
In this blog we are going to look at some of the advantages of using the Mi Mover app and the actual process of transferring data between the phones using the app.
Advantages of using the Mi Mover app
- The first main advantage of using the MI Mover app is the rate of transferring data is much faster compared to the other data transfer applications. The app supports data transfer data speeds of up to 6MB/s. The data transfer process is pretty straightforward and easy to follow along with.
- Second advantage is your data is safe when moving it. The devices will be connected directly via Wi-Fi hotspot, meaning your data wont be exposed to third party applications or devices.
Now, let’s have a look at the transfer process.
Step 1: Download the app from the play store from here on both devices.
Step 2: Open the app on both devices ( the sending and receiving devices ).
Step 3: Click I’m a sender on the sending device and I’m a recipient on the receiving device. Make sure you have enough storage on your sending device as the app needs to create a local backup on the device.
Step 4: Scan the QR code on the sending device with the receiving device to connect both phones.
Step 5: Select the apps, contact, media files, note, and other information you would like to transfer to your new device. After selection, tap on send.
