How to Transfer from Samsung to Huawei P20/P30/P40(Pro)

With the rapid development of mobile phones, most people now have more than one phone and they have different types of files, no matter messages, photos, music and other data on each device. However, this also gives rise to a complex situation wherein the data becomes scattered on different devices and you might need to compile it to one place i.e. to one device.

If you used Samsung Galaxy S or Note phone before and just purchased a new Huawei P40 or P40 Pro, how can you switch from old Samsung Galaxy to the new Huawei phone? To transfer everything from Samsung to Huawei without data loss, we recommend you two effective methods for Android to Android transfer.

Solution 1: Transfer Data Piece By Piece via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Direct

When you have two different phones, for example, a Samsung phone and a Huawei phone, and you don't have any USB cables on your hand, there are two wireless options that you can use to transfer data from one phone to another; namely Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Direct. These are two services that are available on almost every smartphone nowadays and make it every easy to transfer data from Samsung to Huawei P20/P30/P40(Pro).

Bluetooth Transfer:

Step 1 : Go to the settings on your phone and switch on the Bluetooth option. You will mostly find it below the 'Wi-Fi' option. Switch on the Bluetooth on both the devices.

Step 2 : Make your phone visible to all nearby devices by clicking on the checkbox beside your phone's name. In the meantime, scan for other devices in range using the second device and once it detects your phone click on it and you will get a message to enter a passkey on both the devices. Do that and you are now connected.

Step 3 : Now, all you have to do is simply select the file > Share > Bluetooth > Select the phone you want to transfer to; the phone that you have selected (and are connected with) will get a message about the file transfer request. Click on 'Accept' to get the file; the transfer is done. You can go through the whole process again to make more file transfers.

Wi-Fi Transfer:

Step 1 : From the settings of your phone, select Wi-Fi > Wi-Fi Direct and the phone will automatically start searching for devices with Wi-Fi Direct within range.

Step 2 : Click on the device you want to connect with and an invitation would then be sent and on successful acceptance, a Wi-Fi direct connection would be established. Once the connection has been established; just select the files and send them across in the same way that you would do while using the Bluetooth service.

However, please note that you will have to transfer data piece by piece. This is the major drawback of this service. Unlike Syncios Data Transfer you cannot transfer all the data or similar file types at the same time. You will have to again and again select the files and transfer piece by piece. If you want to transfer a single file or just a few photos or something similar, only then is this option recommended.
