Way 2. Transfer data between Android phones with freeware

There are also so some freewares on the Internet. If you don't want to pay for the transfer tools, they work as the substitutes. Now, I'd like to introduce two of them.

#Tool 1. AirDroid

It is free of charge and also popular. It is named the AirDroid because it is invited for management for Android phones and tablets only. The most arresting feature is that it is able to connect Android phones wirelessly so that you don't need any wire connectors like the USB cables. It is compatible with both the Windows computer and the Mac computer.


  • 1.You don't need to connect your devices with any wire connectors.
  • 2.You can use the message function on the web version of it when you are managing your device.
  • 3.It is safe and reliable, as well as quick.


  • 1.You cannot see your device displayed on the primary window because there is no picture matching on it.
  • 2.You cannot use it to manage mobile devices expect the Android ones.
  • 3.You can only use it with WIFI connection, so it is a little slow when transfer and not so steady.
#Tool 2. Android File Transfer

It is a freeware too. But, unlike the AirDroid, it is a cross-platform application. You can use it to transfer data not only between the Android devices, but also between phones with different operation systems like the Android phone and the iPhone. It is compatible with almost all the phones released by Sony, Samsung, LG, Acer, Google, Sharp, and so on.

Way 3. Transfer data between Android phones by Bluetooth

Now you may wonder is there any way without applications. Of course there is! Here is a solution for you without any applications and any charges. All that you need is to put both your Android phones close to each other.

Step 1. Turn on the Bluetooth on both of your Android phones.

Step 2. Then on one of your phones, from the list of the connectable devices, choose the name of another phone. Pair them together with a password protect.

Step 3. After that, you can start to transfer data from one to another. For example, to transfer the photos, you need to go to the photo library, check the photos that you want to transfer, click on “Share” and then choose to share them by Bluetooth.

Step 4. Turn off the switch of Bluetooth on both phones after you finished transferring. Or it may cause something troublesome.

Now that you have read all the passages above, I'd like to make a brief summary about the three ways. First, it is easiest to do by Bluetooth, but it is the least safe and it is slow. Then, for the freewares, there are some disadvantages of them, but anyway they are handy if you like. And the iSkysoft Phone Transfer which is introduced first, is which I think of the highest general comments for you to transfer data from Android phone to Android easily.
