Switching Android Phones can be a pain. If you just bought a new phone and want to copy everything from your old phone to new one, there are numerous ways to do so. You could sync your contacts through Google, Sync music to cloud, share apps and media files via Share it and more. However, You could also do the same using just one app.

How to copy everything from old Android Phone To New One

Step 1: Download CloneIT from Play store on both old and the new phone. It’s a free app that works well.

Step 2: Now select the new phone as the receiver and the old phone as the sender.

Step 3: If you are using Android Nougat+ on the old handset, you will have to turn on Hotspot manually.

Step 4: Now select whatever you wish to move to the new phone and tap ‘start’.

The app works just as ShareIT and uses wifi direct to transfer contacts, SMS, Call logs, System settings, Photos, music and videos from your old phone. Apps are transferred as APK files too, but you will have to install each manually.

There is one issue though. If you have also synced contacts on Google, there are chances that you will see duplicate contacts in your contacts list. You can use the merge contact app by simpler to resolve this issue.

Step 3: Click on duplicate contact and select any entry in the list

Step 4: Now check the Merge All option at the bottom. It will take a while, but all your duplicate contacts will be merged effectively.
