Samsung releases a couple of phones each year. These models have higher and better specs than previous ones released. That is why, Samsung users like me are eager to try them out.
A couple of weeks ago, I upgraded my Samsung Galaxy S10 to Galaxy S23 Ultra. After that, I planned to transfer all my data to my new Samsung phone so I can still access them and for backup purposes.
But sending a bunch of data from Samsung to Samsung is not an easy task, and you will need a reliable method to use. That is why I tested a bunch of solutions and found a few helpful ones and I listed them here!
If you’re currently planning to transfer files and data to another Samsung device, stick around. In this article, we provided different options on how to transfer data from Samsung to Samsung. Check them out!
Method 1: Transfer Samsung to Samsung via Smart Switch
If you’re planning to back up your data on another Samsung device, the Smart Switch is a good option to use. This feature is built-in on all Samsung phones and can transfer files and data such as photos, videos, audio, documents, messages, etc.
Make sure that both phones are connected to an active WIFI network.
Open Smart Switch on both devices by going to Settings > Cloud and Accounts > Smart Switch.
Choose the Wireless option on both devices. Select which phone is the source and receive one.
On the receiving device, tick Android and on the source phone hit Connect.
After that tick the data you want to import then tap Send.
Tick Receive on the receiving device and the transfer should start after that.
Method 2: Transfer Data From Samsung to Samsung via Nearby Share
Another option to transfer files from Samsung to Samsung is by using Nearby Share. It is also a built-in feature on most Android phones including Samsung.
Nearby Share is best to use if you’re sending a couple of photos and other media files. If you’re planning to import huge amounts of data, the process may take a while. Nearby Share doesn’t require an internet connection, just make sure that both devices are within range.
On the receiving phone, turn on Nearby Share by going to Settings > Google > Devices and Sharing > Nearby Share.
Grab the source phone and select the files you want to receive. Tick the Share option and select Nearby Share.
Find and click the receiving device and the transfer will begin.
