I just got my new Galaxy S7 Edge today. I did the initial setup and sign-in with my Google account. Now, how do I transfer my photos, videos, songs and files from my ZenFone2 to my Galaxy S7 Edge?
Samsung’s Smart Switch isn’t compatible with ZenFone 2. Therefore, you can’t use that to move your files from your ZenFone 2 to your Galaxy S7 Edge.
The next best option is to use a 3rd party file transfer app such as SHAREit. Here’s how:
- On your old and new phones, download SHAREit from the Google Play store.
- Open the SHAREit app. Select Receive on your new phone and Send on your old phone.
- On your old phone, go through the various tabs (Files, Videos, Apps, Photos and Music) to select the files you want to send. When you finish selecting, tap Send.
- With SHAREit active (waiting for the sender) on your new phone, your old phone should detect it. Tap the icon that represents your new phone to start the connection and file transfer automatically.
