In present times, people replace their cellphone frequently to get the better service or enjoy better performance of the device. Now Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is going to be the past, and Galaxy Note 7 is coming soon. Will you purchase it for the first time? In the case, transferring your photos, videos and other personal files should be the first thing you consider about. However, some data listed below are not so easy to be moved from old Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, S4, S5, S6, S7 Note 2, Note 3 or Note 4 to new Galaxy Note 8 / Note 7/ Note 5 directly:
Contacts: Although we can view our contacts with our cellphone easily, transferring them could be a little complicated. You can browse your music files, photos, videos easily on the computer, but cannot view the contacts and transfer them unless via a third–party program.
SMS: Your SMS messages are all saved as .db format files in your cellphone internal storage. To check and export them, you are required to have the root authority. Just as contacts, only if you use an effective third-party tool, you can probably transfer them to your new device.
