Gone are the days when we use to remember all the important phone numbers along with their area codes. Now this job is taken over by smartphones. And whenever a situation arises to replace an existing phone it becomes vital to transfer this memory along with other data to the new phone in a safe and secure way.
Now a day it is very common or rather a necessity to replace older phones with new phones with advanced features. Huawei phones are fast becoming popular and many android and iPhone users are switching to Huawei phones. Here in this article, I will guide you on how to transfer contacts and data from LG phone to Huawei phones.
