The OnePlus 5T is one of the most interesting high-end smartphones. The best part at a price more than interesting. Many users may have in mind to switch to this device but maybe they have doubts because they do not want to lose all the configuration and data they already have on their current device. To facilitate this transition, manufacturers offer tools to pass data from one mobile to another.
OnePlus now presents Switch, an application for Android with which you can transfer messages, contacts, and photos stored on any mobile to the new OnePlus smartphone.
The operation is extremely simple. Download the application on our current mobile that works with all brands and devices from Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher, then allow access to the application to all data, images, etc, then select from the app itself the new OnePlus and through the WiFi will be passed all the data to have them on the new mobile.
The application is in beta but works without problems. The stable version will arrive in mid-January but it can be downloaded for free from Google Play.
OnePlus Switch accepts the transfer of contacts, messages, calls, calendar, photos, videos, audio and applications (without data). In comparison, Google has its own data transfer tool that does support passing the applications with the integrated data in some of them, but on the contrary, it only works on mobile phones with Android 6.0 Marshmallow or higher.
If you bought a new OnePlus and do not want to lose the data you already had, download OnePlus Switch and check that everything is still in order. A new tool for the exchange of data very simple and that will save us a few hours to get everything back in order.
