Transferring Contacts and Photos to New Phone
#1
Informational articles to provide you with information on moving your contacts, photos, videos or data from one phone to another.You'll see a progress bar across the screen, and when your restore is complete, you'll be notified. You may have to rearrange your home screens the way you like them, but all of your apps and their data should be back on your device.

Helium has come a long way from its original release. The app now supports a number of devices it didn't before (including Motorola phones,) and still doesn't require root to take full backups (although some protected app data may not come along for the ride.)

If you run into issues, or the app isn't working the way you expect, check the support wiki here. It's remarkably complete, and has answers to a number of common questions. For a detailed walkthrough of PC backups as well as grouping, deleting old backup jobs, and more, this guide to Helium from The Android Soul is a good read as well.

Our only dig on Helium is that for backup-to-cloud or device-to-device syncs, it doesn't make total sense to have the computer "activate" Helium on each phone before performing a backup or restore, but it's not a huge deal. The price is nice, and Helium also supports scheduled backups, automated backups, and more.

If your old and your new phone are both rooted already (or even better, they're Nexus devices), the process is straight-forward, and even though a lot of great backup apps have come and gone, Titanium Backup is still king. That said, Titanium requires root. If you haven't rooted your device, especially the old one that you're leaving behind, now is a great time to do it. Check out our guide to rooting any Android device to learn how to root your phone.

Once your phone is rooted, the tools you need will depend on whether you just want to move apps and app data to your new phone, or you have a replacement phone you want to image and set up quickly:

First, download the trial version of iSkysoft data recovery and install it. After downloading it you will see a pop-up window on your computer screen click on next to proceed with SD card crash recovery.
