Transfer Data Android to Pixel 4 2020

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit, in this video I will show you how to Transfer your data from Android to Pixel 4.

Ok guys this video will show you the official way to transfer all your data from Android to Pixel 4.

This is helpful if you just got your Pixel 4 phone and you want to move all your Texts ,Messages,  contacts, calendars, photos, videos, free apps and music to your Pixel 4.

Ok guys lets get started. If you have a new pixel 4 then you will see this start screen. However if you have already setup your phone then you will need to reset the Pixel 4 back to factory defaults.

Reset your Pixel 4 phone.

We can do this under settings > System and Advanced then reset options. Just remember if already have data on your Pixel phone this will wipe that data. So make sure you backup that data before doing the factory reset. Go ahead and Erase all data again and confirm it.

All right, that will set your Pixel 4 back to factory defaults and you will be able to start the Transfer from Android.

 Also guys I get asked this question all the time will it transfer App Data. The answer is Yes. Will it transfer Paid apps. Again the answer is Yes.

Alright so we are back at the Start screen so just hit Start. Now if you have your sim you can put it In now. Otherwise you can hit skip. You don’t need a sim to Transfer data. Next connect your WIFI. This is important because the Pixel 4 will download the updated Transfer software.

Once connected the Pixel will check for that software I mentioned. Ok just tap next. And tap next again and then it will ask you for your old phone. Make sure you remove your passcode or any security features on your Android Phone. You will also need your old phone cable.

Plug in your two phones

Using the USB C adapter to move the data

The Pixel 4 should have a USB to USB C adapter, plug the other end into your old phone USB cable and then plug the adapter end into your Pixel 4.

Now go ahead and plug both phones into each other to start the transfer.

 Tap Copy on your old Android Phone. Ok cool, the Pixel 4 will give you a summary of what you can transfer.

Just untick any data that you don’t want to transfer and tap copy. Also if you copying fails, try this method again but maybe try a small transfer first like contacts. Double check you don’t have any security options like passcodes that could block the transfer. Congratulations you just copied your data tap on next and unplug your phones. Follow the prompts of your phone.

Your Pixel 4 should show you a confirmation of the data you have copied. Alright you all done. Check your data and you are good to go.

Google Pixel 4 Unboxing Firstlook

A look at the Google Pixel 4

Hi guys and welcome to 123myIT. In this video we take a first look at the Google Pixel 4 Unboxing. Check out the Pixel 4 on Amazon here 👉 https://amzn.to/30Bb6QU

Prices for the Pixel 4 start at $799 us and it is $100 cheaper than the Pixel 4 XL. And the main new features for the Pixel 4 over the Pixel 3 are a new bigger OLED display which has improved refresh rate up to 90hz. As well as 6 GB of Ram and a new Snapdragon 855 processor.

And of course it launches with Android 10 right of the bat.

Pixel 4 Unboxing – Right out of the Box!

All right guys let’s get to the unboxing and take a look what’s inside. So the first thing we see when doing the Google Pixel 4 Unboxing is the phone itself wrapped in plastic. And the colour I got is the clearly white, but it is also available in Just Black and Oh So Orange.

Under the phone we have the pretty standard documentation. This includes a SIM eject tool and user guide on how to setup your Pixel.

Next up we have a set of Google Pixel USB-C earbuds and there is an adjustable loop on the earbuds which allows you to set the size of your ear so they grip to the inside of your ear better.  Also included is a USB C cable and adapter for charging the phone. This adapter has the Australia new Zealand plug. However if you are in the US you will have the US adapter. You will also get a USB C to USB adapter plug. This is helpful when transferring content with the a USB cable.

Design

The pixel 4 is a decent looking phone. I actually like the design of it. It has a low key clean look. It has matt black rails that go all the way around the side of the phone. No markings along the back just the Google G at the bottom and at the top a black square which contains the rear facing camera. As well as the coloured power button on every version.

Google Pixel 4 Unboxing – Display

The screen on the Pixel 4 is bigger than the Pixel 3 going from 5.5 inches to 5.7 inches. Its also got more rounded corners and it doesn’t include the annoying notch that some other phones have.

The Screen

It’s a FHD+ flexible OLED display at 444 pixels per inch and contains another big upgrade which is called Smooth Display. Smooth Display refreshes the display at 90 Hz instead of the normal 60 Hz this means the scrolling and movement of the screen will look somewhat smoother than normal. The downside to high refresh rate is the battery life. More power is needed to refresh the screen more often and thus this feature has been blamed for the Pixel 4s poor battery life.

Playing Games!

You can turn this feature off at least under the Advanced Display settings. I found it hard to tell the difference when looking at the phone in person so maybe this isn’t such a big deal for normal use.

The phone doesn’t have a finger print sensor which I thought would be quite annoying. But it does have the fastest face unlock of any smart phone.  It does this by detecting movement earlier with a little sensor called Motion Sense. This sensor detects moment early and prepares the phone to detect a face. Once it detects your face the phone unlocks it works really well.

Motion Sense

You can turn Motion Sense off under Settings System and you can also use this feature to skip songs, silence /snooze alarms and silence phone calls.

On the right hand side you have a coloured sleep wake power button. The colour will be different depending on which colour you buy. And below that you have the volume up and down buttons. On the left side you have the sim card slot. If you eject the slot you will see a little rubber seal which keeps water out and makes the phone dust and water resistant. This gives the pixel its IP68 water resistant rating.

On the bottom the speaker slots are lined up nicely with the USB type C port. On the top of the pixel  there is allot of action going on however its mostly hidden so the best way to show you is with a picture. You have a Face unlock IR Camera, 8 mega pixel Front facing camera, Ambient light Proximity sensor, Audio port, Soli radar chip, Face unlock dot Projector, Face unlock IR Camera and Face unlock Flood illuminator.

Audio

The speakers sound really good and here’s a quick sample.

Good for Movies!

The specs for the Pixel 4 are similar to the Pixel 4 XL they both have the Snapdragon 855 cpu and 6 GB of Ram. Of course to view video on the screen and play games you will need to help of a GPU and the Pixel 4 comes with the Adreno 640 chip. This also gives us a pretty solid improvement over the Pixel 3. Both the Pixel 4 and XL come with a storage options of 64 GB or 128 GB.

Battery

Battery size has been downgraded from a 2915 mAh battery on the Pixel 3 to a 2800 mAh battery on the Pixel 4. Its disappointing to say the least as the battery doesn’t seem to last as long as it should.

Camera

In terms of the two cameras on the back of the Pixel 4 you have a 12.2 mega pixel, dual pixel rear camera with a 1.7 aperture. And you also have a 16 mega pixel telephoto camera with a f 2.5 aperture. Testing out the Super Res Zoom on the camera and it does a good job zooming down the street. The Telephoto camera only has a 2x optical zoom this mean the rest of the zoom is handled by the Super Res Zoom.

The camera also has some neat new sliders for exposure and shadows adjustment. And as you can see here I change the exposure and shadows on the fly. Even when objects are closer the camera does a really good job keeping all the detail.

Lets take a quick look at the camera settings. At the bottom we have different modes. Night sight for night photos. Portrait mode for Portrait photos. The regular camera mode and a Video mode.  We also have a more setting which opens up Panorama mode. Photo sphere which is a 360 degree Panorama feature. Slow motion and time lapse mode.  Playground mode which allows you to put object within other photos.

Google Lens

And the last one is Google Lens which allows you to take photo and then it will return a Google search on the object that you photograph. As for video it will do 720p 1080p and 4K, but you will need to turn on the 4K feature in settings.

Don’t forget the Pixel 4 also support wireless charging. When using the pad you might need to ajust the phone slightly until it makes a connection.

Overall the Pixel 4 is a great phone, but I find it hard to recommend because of the small battery. I also found the software at times buggy, like when using the zoom on the camera and for no reason it would flick back to the home screen. I can imagine this happening when you are about to capture that special moment. Very frustrating.

Backup & Restore WhatsApp on Android via Google Drive

Hi Guys and welcome to 123, in this video I will show you how to do a backup of WhatsApp on Android via Google drive.

Ok guys so this is the Official way that WhatsApp recommends for you to do a backup and restore WhatsApp on Android. You can also do a manually backup and restore from SD card and Computer. However, this video will be a backup via Google drive.

Let’s get started.

Backup your WhatsApp

You will need a Google account to Back up the WhatsApp to Google drive. This should not be a problem because to download WhatsApp from the Google play store, you would have had to use a Google account anyway.  You can add your Google account under settings, accounts and sync otherwise if that’s too confusing you can just go into the play store and log in there.

Chat Backup on WhatsApp

Just tap sign in and the Google play store will add the Google account for you whether you like it or not. If you want to back up your whole phone to Google drive then leave the backup & storage on. However, this setting does not affect the WhatsApp backup so I am going to turn it off and tap accept.

Alright we are logged in now, lets go into WhatsApp. In the top right hand corner you should see three little dots. Tap on that. And then press settings. Tap on Chats, backup, history, wallpaper. Tap on Chat backup.

Google Drive Backup

Now you will have a few options here. Go to where it says Back up to Google Drive. And then we want to change that from never to only when I tap backup. Choose the Gmail account you want to use for the backup. Next up tap allow. Scroll down and tap on Back up over wifi only. Make sure you select wifi only otherwise it could eat up your cellular data. And the last option is include videos in your backup. Turn this on if you want to backup large video files.

Press the Big green Back UP botton to start backing up all your WhatsApp data. Here I get a message warning me that I am not on wifi so I will turn my wifi on real quick.

Once this is done I hit back up again and wait for it to complete. Depending on how much data you have it might take a while. Make sure to confirm that the back up is there.

Now if you are moving to a new phone you will need to move your sim first. This is because your sim stores your contacts and phone numbers and WhatsApp needs these to attach the phone numbers with your messages.

On your new Android phone you need to install WhatsApp from the Google play store.

Tap install. Once your WhatsApp is installed open it up. Tap on Agree and Continue and then enter in your phone number. Go ahead and verify your phone number.

Restore Whatsapp on Android

Hit continue and then allow WhatsApp access to your Contacts and photos and media files. Awesome you have made it this far, now you should see the message to restore from the backup you made earlier today. Alright you can see that 11 000 messages have been restored. Tap next fill out your name and you are done. All too easy!

Stop Pop-Up Ads on Android

Stop Pop-Up Ads on Android video.

Hi Guys welcome to 123myIT! In this video & article we will show you how to Stop Pop-Up Ads on your Android device. Helpful if you are getting Ads when browsing the internet.

Stop Pop-Up Ads.

Ok guys so you have been browsing the web on your Android device and suddenly for no reason you are getting Pop-up Ads. Now I have turned on some of the Ads features on my Android phone and these are some of the Ads that started appearing.

Stop Pop-Up Ads on Android
Gas Bottle Android Ad Pop-Up

Gas bottles, Private offices for hire and Tarot Reading are the Ads that came up and this are not relevant to me at all. Something that is really annoying about these ads is, that I don’t need any of the stuff that comes up on the Ad.

Step 1 – Remove google ads on phone and browser.

Depending on which browser you use on your Android device it might be different. However I will show you the few options on the different Android devices I use. So go into the browser you use and into the settings of that browser.

Oppo phone default browser: Block ads – you can turn this off and on. In the video you can see here that it has already blocked so many ads.
Scroll down to Block pop-ups.
Go into Clear browsing data and you will see three different options. Clear saved passwords > Clear browsing history > Clear cookies and data.

I would clear the bottom two but you can clear all just be aware that it will forget all your passwords.

Stop Pop-Up Ads – Chrome Browser

If you use the Chrome browser go to the three dots and settings. Scroll down to Site settings > Pop-ups and redirects menu.
Also you can go into the Ads menu and change that.
If you then go back out and go into Privacy, scroll to the bottom and press Clear Browsing Data. Advanced, and you will have the options of what you want to clear for the Chrome browser as well.

Next go into the Settings menu on your Android device. Go down to your Google account.
Press on Ads, you can then tap the opt out of Ads Personalisation. And next press on Ads by Google.
This launches a FAQ on Google Ads. If you want to know more about them have a read through. However what we are after is if you want to scroll to where it says Google and advertising standards. So find your country and opt out. Here is the link if you need it. https://support.google.com/ads/answer/1660762?hl=en

Now once you have done this I would suggest restarting your Android device and testing it for a while. If it is the Google Ads then they should stop coming through. If you are still getting pop-ups then try the next steps.

Step 2 – Remove recently installed Apps.

It might be a recently installed app doing the pop-ups, so remove any recently installed apps one by one and test. Go into Settings > App Management, find the app you are after and press it. Then tap uninstall. Do a restart of the phone and test it again. If you are still getting popups then go to the next step.

Step 3 – Install Malwarebytes.

Malwarebytes is a program that can Identify and remove malware from your Android device. Go to the play.google.com site and download install it.
Run the software update and scan your android device. Remove any Malware found and restart your Android device and test for popups. For more info on what Malware is go to WIKI here.

Step 4 – Backup Data and Reset Phone

If you go into Settings > Additional Settings and scroll down to Backup and Reset. Under that you can press Backup my data and then Backup my data now. Make sure that your data is backed up before you go to the next step.
Next Factory data reset > Erase all content and settings. This should hopefully be the last resort if you cant get rid of the ads.

This video and article will show you how to transfer data, such as clips, messages and contacts from your iPhone to Android device.

Getting a new phone is great. But there is always the problem of moving your data from your old phone to your new one. I have done a few transfer videos before however this changes year on year depending which model phone you have. So this is the 2019 version which will hopefully make it an easy process.

Step 1 – Back up your iPhone to icloud

The first step is to backup your data to iCloud. You can do this by going into Settings and at the top sign into iCloud with your Apple ID. You want to make a backup of your data before you move to the next step. Also now is a good time to get rid of any data you don’t want moved over to your Android phone. In your iCloud account setting go through and toggle off anything you don’t want. Lastly go onto the iCloud.com website and check your data has been backed up. Very Important!

Using iCloud to backup your data before moving it to Android.

step 2 – use smart switch app to download data from icloud to your android device.

If you don’t have smart switch on your phone already you can pick up this app from play.google.com. Direct link here. Go through the options. Bring data to your new phone. Next select the WIFI option and make sure both phones are on your WIFI.

You can also use a cable if you prefer. An option should now come up asking you to Get Connected. Choose the device you want however in this video we choose iPhone/iPad. Next put in your Apple ID. Select the data that you want to download from iCloud. Simply press Import and you are done.
