These days, smartphones are already ubiquitous in our everyday life and bring us convenience in every aspect of our life. In order to keep pace with the times, phone users change their smartphone more frequently than ever before. If you need to replace your old Samsung Android phone, then it is the right time to reward yourself with a new value-for-money Huawei Android device.

For many of phone users, text messaging is still an essential way of communication. When you are not in a position to make a phone call, then text messages play an important role. Therefore, a large number of text messages are stored in our smartphone. Some text messages are vital for business and others are memorable. Any way, we cannot afford to lose these text messages.

When you get a new Huawei Android phone, how to copy all these abundant text messages from the old Samsung phone to the new Huawei phone in a straight way poses a challenging task for you. Traditionally, we would extract the text messages from Samsung to the computer using a 3rd party tool, and then import the text messages into your Huawei phone. However, such method is often time-consuming. But don't worry, we have Phone Transfer to make such task easier for you.
