In this digitalized world, most of our data is saved on our phones, whether personal or work-related. It also requires us to download tons of applications for different functions. These apps can take up a lot of space on our phones, and despite the sizeable internal storage, filled storage space can significantly slow down the phone. An easy solution is using the external SD card. If you are unsure how to transfer apps to SD card in oppo A3s, read ahead.

However, there are always various ways of doing anything. Here we have compiled the most straightforward options available with detailed steps to make this process as simple as possible.

Part 2: how to Transfer Files from Phone to SD Card Oppo A3s with One-Tap Transfer

If the first method is not available on your phone, you can use this tried and tested super-easy process to transfer apps to the SD card in oppo A3s. One-Tap transfer, as the name suggests, allows rapid transfer of data to the SD card. It is in-built in your phones, so you don’t need to worry about downloading it. You can use it to transfer pictures, videos, audio files, and applications (APK). However, the only limitation is that it only works on ColorOS version of 5.2 or above (Check your OS version in settings>about the phone)

Let me walk you through all the steps-:

1. Open the settings menu and click on additional settings.

Part 3: Save More Space for Your Oppo by Backup Phone to Computer

MobileTrans by Wondershare has an easy interface, and to use its backup feature, you don’t need to purchase a license. Lucky for us, this essential feature is free for use after installation. You can easily create a backup of your phone on your pc. Data ranging from pictures, videos, audio files to Whatsapp chats, including media files, can be backed up in a few clicks.

Why should we back up our phones? There are two reasons for this

1. Data is saved from being deleted or lost:

Since we live in a digitalized era, we tend to save all our data and essential information on our phones for quick and easy access. But this easy saving method can sometimes be very dangerous. You can lose your phone, or you may accidentally format your phone. Imagine how awful it would be to lose all your important documents or old pictures. So, by creating a backup on your computer, you can stop worrying about losing it.

2. Backed up data can be deleted from the phone to free up space:

Data such as old pictures, documents, or your favorite audio and video files that you don’t regularly use or view can be saved to your computer as a backup. Since these files collectively tend to take up a lot of space, they will hinder the download of any other files or applications you currently need. But after a backup, you can delete the not-so-frequently used files and access them on your computer whenever needed. This will free up a lot of space on your phone and let it run smoothly without slowing down or getting hanged.

Now I’ll show you a step-step guide to create a backup:

1. Install Wondershare’s MobileTrans. The first page you’ll see will list a few options. We will click on Backup. Also, connect your phone via a USB cable.

All the methods mentioned above carry equal significance, and you can choose which method of saving disk space suits you best.
