3.2- Drawbacks of Using Bluetooth

When you use Bluetooth to transfer files, there are some drawbacks to using it. Given below are the points that can help you to understand it in a better way.

  • • Slow Speed - In general, the transmission rate of Bluetooth is 25Mbps, which is very slow as compared to the other data transferring devices. Moreover, you cannot compare it with Wi-Fi as it offers faster transfer rates. Therefore, it is not an ideal option for transferring large files or data like audios, videos, and other major files.
  • • Cost Lots of Time - As the speed of transferring data through Bluetooth is very slow so, it requires lots of time to send files. Further, it is not possible to send large files through Bluetooth.
  • • Transfer Only Limited Data - When you use Bluetooth to transfer files, you can transfer only limited data at one time. You cannot transfer all the data at a time, so its usage gets automatically diminished.
  • • Poor Security - Every network technology provides you with some security built in it to stop hackers from accessing your private data without your permission. Moreover, the security of Bluetooth is weak as compared to Wi-Fi and other wireless options. A determined hacker can easily have access to your wireless device with the help of a Bluetooth connection and can use your personal data.
  • • Drain the Battery of Your Phone - Even though Bluetooth is an energy-efficient technology, still it will slowly drain the battery of your phones. When you enable the Bluetooth in your device, it will continually scan for the nearby available signals. As a result, the battery of your phone drains quickly.


In this article, we have discussed three ways that you can use to transfer data to Xiaomi. But the most appropriate option that you can use is MobileTrans- Phone Transfer. It allows to move data from any old device to new Xiaomi 11 oder Xiaomi 12. Also, it causes no harm to security of your phone and data as well.

Moreover, using this tool, you can also send the selective data rather than sending whole data, which is required in other cases. Try it once!
