Motorola Migrate: Transfer Content from Lenovo to Moto

-- Thursday, November 05, 2015
To be frank, getting a new Motorola phone such as Moto X, Moto G/E and Droid Ultra/Maxx/Mini for yourself is as exciting as it can be, but setting it up and moving files to the current device is a complicated job. Contacts, text messages, photos, videos…. All of these are valuable but hard to shift. That's why Motorola tries its best to develop its own migrate application to help Android users transfer content from Lenovo to Moto.

The app is Motorola Migrate. With this app, you can transfer contents between Android, for example, between Lenovo and Motorola phone. It supports direct transmission between two devices, without a mediator computer and a USB cable. It depends on Wi-Fi connection. The transmission process is so speedy and simple that you can shift your files within a few minutes.

1.Install Motorola Migrate on your Lenovo and Motorola.
2.Connect both phones to Wi-Fi hotspot.
3.Supported devices: Moto X, Moto G, Moto E, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx and Droid Mini, Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 edge+, LG G4/G3, Sony Xperia Z3/Z5, Nexus 6/6P, Lenovo Phab Plus,etc.

Part 2:Transfer Content from Moto to Lenovo

As I once failed to transfer content from Moto to Lenovo because the QR code didn't show up, I recommend the other program Phone Transfer to help you do this job.
