Best 4 Motorola Migrate Alternatives to Help you Transfer Data
Written By Axel Nash |
Most mobile device brands will provide users with an official app to use when they want to transfer data from their old devices to a new one. For Motorola, this app is known as Motorola Migrate. With Motorola Migrate you can very easily move data from your old Android device to the new Motorola device. It supports numerous Android device models and it can transfer a wide range of data including music, photos, call history and more.
But this app may not be useful to you if your device is running Android 6.0 or higher. In this case, you may want to try the following alternatives.
1. MobileTrans-Phone Transfer
One of the best Motorola Migrate alternatives to use when moving data from any Android device to the new Motorola is MobileTrans-Phone Transfer. This is because it supports all Android devices and all versions of the Android OS, not to mention, it will allow you to move all data from one device to another in a single click.
