Android to Android
Thanks to Google's cloud services, it's dead simple to transfer all of your apps and data to a new Android phone, especially with Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Major Android manufacturers also often include custom migration tools in their phones. For example, Samsung offers its Smart Switch app, while Motorola has its own Migrate tool.
Lollipop has two new migration tools that make themselves available when you set up your new Android phone: Tap & Go and Get Your Apps & Data. You can run through either in a matter of minutes.
Tap & GoThis new Android feature relies on NFC to initiate a data transfer between your old Android phone and your new one. Once you've selected "Tap & Go" while setting up your new phone, you simply need to unlock your old phone and turn on NFC.
Tap the two phones together, and a data transfer prompt will appear on the screen of your old phone. Select "Okay" and the transfer will begin. A message will appear on your new phone when the process is complete.
Get Your Apps & DataIf your old phone doesn't have NFC, skip the "Tap & Go" feature and use this method. Once you set up your primary Google account, you'll be prompted to restore your new phone with a backup from your old one.
You want both of these check boxes to be checked off to backup all of your phone's data to Google's cloud. View LargerIf you aren't offered any backups, we recommend checking to make sure that your old phone has been backing up and syncing app data to Google's cloud.
You can check by going to Settings > Personal > Backup & reset. Make sure "Backup my data" is enabled. As for app syncing, go to Settings > Data usage, tap on the three-dot menu symbol at the top right of the screen, and make sure "Auto-sync data" is turned on.
Once you have a backup, select it on your new phone and you'll be offered a list of all the apps on your old phone. Then you can choose whether you want to restore them to your new phone. Some apps might not appear if they don't support app syncing, but you can just re-download them from the Play Store.
Photos, Files, and MoreWhile the methods above will transfer your apps and data, they won't send any of your locally stored photos, videos, or files. As a workaround, Google recommends you use Google Photos and Google Drive to upload everything to the cloud from your old device.
To upload your files to Google Drive, tap the "+" button at the bottom right of the screen, followed by the Upload button circled here. View LargerTo backup your photos, go to Google Settings > Google Photos Backup and enable it. Be aware that there are length restrictions on videos if you upload them at "High quality" instead of their original size.
For other files, you can go into the Google Drive app, tap the "+" button at the bottom right of the screen, and then hit "Upload." Here you can choose to upload files from your device using a simple file browser.
Once you've uploaded everything, all you need to do is set up Google Photos and Google Drive on your new phone. Everything will be available on your new phone, and you'll be able to access your personal files from just about any other device you own. Welcome to the cloud!
