Which to Choose: HTC Transfer Tool vs. Phone Transfer

-- Thursday, December 24, 2015
For many, the question of getting a new Android phone isn’t which Android model to choose, but how to transfer data from old Android to the new one. Let’s be honest, it’s such a daunting task to automatically copy data from one device to another regardless of using Bluetooth or by dragging & dropping the content between two devices via the Computer.

Fortunately, there are professional developers that have worked on alternative solutions that give us the possibility to freely manage and transfer data between different Android devices. If you are struggling about getting a reliable program for your new HTC smartphone, HTC Transfer Tool and Phone Transfer are the two of the best ones. In this post we’ve covered the comparison between them to help you decide which one to choose.
