How to Transfer Your Stuff from One Android to Another
Have your Google Pixel for years, and want to replace with a Sony Xperia Android phone? Getting a new phone is an exciting thing, but also bothers you a lot since you have realized that the important data like contacts still stored in your old Pixel Android phone. Some of you may be fed up with typing the contacts manually on the new Sony phone while other may figure out the way to move your contacts between two Android handsets through Bluetooth. However, using Bluetooth will cost you a long time if these transfer files are in large size. Besides, what you may ignore is that contacts cannot be viewed and copied in bulk in this way as they are saved in the internal memory of a mobile phone.

So, a third party software called Phone Transfer is highly recommended for phone users as it makes it extremely simple to transfer almost everything from one Android phone to another, including contacts, text messages, calendar, music, photos, videos, call history, apps. You can even use it to transfer data from Android to iOS and vice versa.
