🏷️How to Transfer Data from Samsung to Samsung with Computer

When it comes to phone switching and data transfer from one phone to another, using computer to transfer all data from Samsung to Samsung is more simpler than wireless transfer. Let's get right to it now!

Way 1. EaseUS MobiMover

EaseUS MobiMover is a desktop application for Windows and Mac, dedicated to transferring data from one phone to another phone (Android and iOS are supported.) This reliable phone data transfer software is able to transfer everything (including contacts, photos, videos, music, notes, and other content). It's also viable for EaseUS MobiMover to transfer parts of data between two phone devices.

With this effective EaseUS tool, you can transfer data from Samsung to Samsung without any effort. It offers a user-friendly interface and no technical skills are required. Everyone without basic mobile phone knowledge can use it to transfer data easily in a few minutes.

Step 1. Launch EaseUS MobiMover and select "Phone to Phone" from the homepage. Connect both your Android phones to your computer via USB. Follow the on-screen steps to allow USB debugging and other required authorizations on Android phones. Switch one Android as the source device and another as the target.

Step 2. After the two devices are connected, click "Next." EaseUS MobiMover will be downloaded to both Android phones to access and transfer data. (You'll need to follow on-screen instructions to set MobiMover as your default SMS program temporarily for accessing files.)

Way 2. Copy and Paste Data through Computer

Can you transfer data from one Samsung to another using computer with no introduction of any other third-party transfer software? The answer is yes. You can back up your Samsung data to a computer and then transfer it to another Samsung phone. It's quite easy. However, this method is only available for limited required data, such as photos, videos, music, documents, PDFs, etc. The app data, contacts, calendar, and some settings can not be trsnferred in this way.

If you happen to move some essential and important content from one Android (Samsung) to another, then follow the steps below:

Step 1. Connect both devices to your computer via USB cables.

🏷️How to Transfer Data from One Samsung to Another Without Computer

Apart from using a computer to transfer data between two phone devices, you can also select wireless transfer or other ways to achieve that. Let's skip to it now!

Way 1. Samsung Smart Switch

Samsung developed an app called Smart Switch to exclusively transfer data from one phone to a Samsung Galaxy phone. It enables users to seamlessly transfer contacts, photos, music, videos, messages, notes, calendars and more to virtually any Samsung Galaxy device wirelessly or with a cable. Of course, you can also transfer data from iPhone to Samsung with Smart Switch.

Here's how to use the desktop Smart Switch application to transfer data from one Samsung phone to another:

Step 1. Install Smart Switch on your source/target phones and then launch them.

Step 2. In Smart Switch from the target device, select Galaxy as the source device to transfer data from.

Step 3. Then select Cable or Wireless to transfer data as needed.

Step 4. If you choose to transfer data wirelessly, you need to wait for a while to scan the devices nearby for pairing.

Step 5. If you select Cable to transfer data, you need to connect both devices via a USB cable and a USB connector.

Step 6. When the data transfer screen appears, you can select the data types to transfer now. Wait for the transfer to complete.

Way 2. Bluetooth

When it comes to wireless transfer, you probably think of short-range wireless technology, such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and AirDrop. In this section, you will learn how to transfer data from Android to Android wirelessly with Bluetooth. Generally speaking, people often open Bluetooth to transfer small-size files, such as a couple of pictures, a song for sharing.

To move data using Bluetooth between two Samsung phones:

Step 1. First, turn on the Bluetooth settings on both devices from the Notification panel.

Step 2. On the source device, select the content that you want to transfer.

Step 3. Tap the Share button and select Bluetooth.

Step 4. From the available devices list, select the other Samsung phone to receive the data. Wait for the process to complete.

When you select some files and tap the Share button, you may see a lot of sharing options, such as WhatsApp, Emails, messages or other services. In addition to Bluetooth, you can also select transfer data from Samsung to Samsung via Emails. All paths lead to the same destination.

Way 3. NFC

What is NFC? NFC (near-field communication) is a technology that enables two devices to communicate with each other when they're close together over a distance of 4 cm. Given that, we can take advantage of this built-in feature to transfer data from one device to another.

Step 1. On both phone devices, open Settings > More > NFC. Toggle on the NFC feature.

Step 2. Place the two phones together, no more than 4 cm apart. When you're done, they'll make a sound to indicate that a connection has been made.

Step 3. Then you can select some data on the source phone.

Step 4. When you're done, tap the Touch to Beam button to start the transferring process.

Way 4. Samsung Cloud

Using a cloud-based service to back up and restore phone data is definitely a wise choice. All Android and iOS phones have exclusive cloud storage services offered by phone brand providers. iPhone and Huawei users are provided 5 GB free of storage of iCloud and Huawei Cloud, respectively. As for Samsung users, they can use Samsung Cloud to save files and 15 GB of free storage is offered.

To back up and restore Galaxy phone data to Samsung Cloud:

Step 1. On the old Samsung phone, go to Settings > Accounts and backup.

Step 2. Then select Samsung Cloud > More > Settings.

open Samsung Cloud settings

Step 3. Tap Sync and auto backup settings > Auto back up.

Step 4. On your new Samsung phone, go to Settings > Accounts and backup.

Step 5. Tap Restore data > Restore. Select the content that you want to restore to this device.

Actually, there are some other cloud services you ca also use, in addition to Samsung Cloud. For example, Google Drive. You can sign into your Google account on the old Samsung. Then select the files to share. Under the Share option, select Save to Drive to save the files to Google Drive. Similarly, sign into the same Google account on your other Samsung phone and download the files to your phone.

Bonus: If both of the Samsung devices support external microSD cards, then you can also copy the data to the SD card from one phone and then move it to the other phone. Nowadays, most of Android phones don't support such an external memory card anymore.

🏷️What Data Can be Transferred When Switch to a New Phone

Switching to a new phone means the owner needs to transfer various important data and information from the old to the new. For most phone users, they tend to back up and restore the whole device and probably don't know what data they transferred just now.

  • call history
  • app data, especially social app data (WhatsApp, SnapChat, WeChat, etc.)
  • contacts
  • media files, such as videos, photos, recordings, and songs.
