Transfer data from old phone to new phone Android

This video will show you how to Transfer data from old phone to new phone Android.

Hi All, recently I upgraded my Android phone from the Samsung Galaxy S5 to the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and I am slowly working through a few issues that I found when setting up the new phone.
One of those issues was a problem with Gmail contacts getting mixed up with my person phone contacts. Find that video here. Delete Gmail contacts from Android.

So how do you Transfer data from old phone to new phone on Android? Well in this video I use an application called Samsung Smart Switch, which is an app that is available on the Google Play website. It allows you to Transfer data from your old phone to your new phone without the need to plug into another computer.
And it also supports moving from IOS to Android and Android to IOS.

Samsung Smart Switch App

The process is pretty straight forward, simply download the Samsung Smart Switch app on both the old device and the new device. Start the Samsung Smart Switch app up on both devices and select the type of OS, so either IOS for Apple Devices devices or Android for Android devices. and then tap the Start button.

Next you will need to set the old device to sending and the new device to Receiving. The two phones should hopefully see each other by now and automatically connect to one another.
Select the data that you want to move from your old phone to your new phone by leaving the check boxes ticked. If there is any data that you don’t want to copy to your new phone, simply remove the tick from the checkbox.

Once done you should be good to go. Just remember that the time it takes to copy data across depends on the speed of your phones and how much data you wish to transfer. For me it was about 4GB and that would take around 40 mins.

I hope this helps out.
Good luck

Apple iPhone 6 Plus Unboxing & Firstlook

This video will show you a first look and unboxing of the Apple iPhone 6 Plus mobile phone.

Hi All,
Recently I through it might be a good idea to purchase the iPhone 6 Plus to do a review and unboxing for everyone. Normally I am not such an Apple fan boy, however the part that sold me on the iPhone 6 plus was a few things.
* Greater battery life
* 5.5 inch LED-backlit widescreen Multi‑Touch display with IPS technology
* 1920-by-1080-pixel resolution at 401 ppi

Which is pretty awesome. How comfortable the phone is in your hand when talking on the phone remains to be seen.
Also it make you wonder if Apple plan to kill off the iPad mini with the size of this phone? If is the price difference between the iPad and iPhone will keep it safe.


Apple iPhone 6 Plus

Well of course the iPhone 6 plus is thinner over all, however the camera on the back of the phone does stick out. As for the phone size I do worry about my pocket getting smaller, I carry my phone in my left side pocket and one of the great things about the iPhone 4S was it fits well in small pockets.
The also has been allot said about the iPhone 6 Plus bending, when using the phone I did not notice any type of movement in the chassis of the phone. So if you are a normal user of the phone I wouldn’t worry about this.

How to Save Battery Power on an Android Device

If you have been using your Android device for a while you might have noticed that it started out with really good battery life but over time, the battery life doesn’t seem to be as good as it was. It could be that the battery is slowly dying and all of them do that, however it could be that you have loads of apps running in the back ground and all of your services on.

This guide will give you some helpful tips on how to save your battery life. A few small tips will have your Android device lasting for day!! Well maybe not that long. 😉

Step 1. Have your phone tell you what is using up the most power.
Go into Settings, About Phone, Battery Use. On my phone the app Whatsapp was using 66% of the battery. So turning off Whatsapp would help me get more battery life out of the phone.

Android Battery Use

Step 2. Tell your Android device to use 2G only or use GSM over WCDMA.
Only do this if you don’t need access to 3G or 4G high speed data.
Go into Settings, Wireless and Network, Mobile networks and select your network mode.

Android Network Mode

Step 3. Reduce your display brightness.
Settings, Display, Brightness.
Slide brightness slider all the way to the left and it will help you save power when you are reading the phone. Most of the time people can still read the phone without needing the brightness up high.

Step 4. Always try to use a black background or wallpaper. Settings, Display, Wallpaper.
Here is a sample below but you can find loads of black backgrounds on Google images.

You can also set as your default home page. is a black background search engine webpage by Google and its built especially for mobile devices it allows you to search the web without using so much power on your phone. Awesome idea.

Step 13. Take your USB charger with your where ever you go as there are Free USB ports everywhere! Allot of Airlines these days have free USB ports so that you can charge your Android device while flying.
