I finally decide to change my out of data HTC phone to the awesome Samsung Galaxy S6. I haven’t changed my phone for a very long time because I think it is unnecessary to replace the old phone if it still works fine. But I recently realized that without using the latest operation system, my life and work were facing more and more difficult. Especially when I had to turn off some of my friends who want me to join some cool game that we can play together on our phone. My old HTC is just not capable of running such apps. Then I have to change a new phone, and this phone has to content the very edge technologies which hopefully can make me catch up the new trend within a short time. I therefore find Samsung Galaxy S6 which definitely meets all my requirements about my new smart phone.
How to Transfer Data from HTC to Samsung Galaxy S6 Safely and Easily
But now I have to deal with another issue which is really making me feel frustrated. I cannot find an easy way to transfer the data from my old HTC to this new Samsung Galaxy S6. I have tried some methods I found in the Internet, and maybe it is because my HTC is a very old model, and Samsung Galaxy S6 is too new, none of these methods are useful. And I even lose some data in my old HTC by incorrect operation, so did I get a broken part of data being transferred to new Galaxy S6. Anyway, I took a long time to fix both phones and hope they won’t get worse.
Since the free methods on the Internet are no good for me, I start considering third party software, and I don’t care if this software will cost me money or not. As long as I can transfer the data from HTC to Samsung Galaxy S6 safe and sound, it is no big deal to pay for it.
Then, I finally found this software named the dr.fone – Switch. I cannot believe that this software so easily saves me out of this messed up problem. Within a very short time, all the data I would like to be in my new S6 are there without any data missing or unexpected problems.
