Accounts

This time the process is even simpler since you will only have to export from your old Android system, synchronizing the data from your Google account and dump said data when initializing your new Xiaomi, Redmi or POCO.

Of course, if your mobile is a classic model, a "non-smart" phone, you will be obliged to copy all the data to an additional medium, such as a computer, using the official USB cable of the terminal. Even so, you can still copy the contacts to the SIM card and then export them - following the Contacts> Options> Copy contacts path - and install an additional application to save the photos in the cloud.

As you can see in the screenshot above, there are different options to synchronize, not only through Google: you can synchronize through your Mi account, although the Xiaomi Cloud storage space is limited to only 5GB and the process is somewhat less intuitive.

In any case, once you have synchronized the data, you will only have to enter the 'Settings' section, go down to 'Accounts' and restore them to your new Xiaomi .

My Move

We are going with an alternative within the Xiaomi ecosystem itself. If you already had a Xiaomi and you change to a more modern one, you just have to download the Mi Mover application and follow the steps indicated on the screen.

'My Mover' provides additional options to Google since it recognizes the terminal model and allows the transfer of any file not protected by password or encryption - in order to avoid violations.

That is, any image, video, song, document, message, contact book, call history, calendar events, notes, alarms, applications, and even system preferences.

Best of all, you can choose what to export, so if you don't want to have something on your new mobile, you can save space and make a cleaner export.

What if something has not been transferred? Pass it on in a moment via Bluetooth

Now let's suppose that something has been left without sharing: an audio file that you use as a ringtone or an image that you always use as a wallpaper, because it is outside of your roll of photos, stored in another folder.

No problem, also export files via Bluetooth you just have to follow these steps:

  1. Enter the ' Settings ' or 'Settings' of your previous Android mobile.
  2. Activate Bluetooth via ' Enable Bluetooth ' or via the activate button.
  3. Now pair them once you see the name of the old mobile in the device list of your new Xiaomi. You will be asked for a code or password that will be used to make this pairing.
  4. Once the connection has been made, you can start the data transfer process. The Huawei and Samsung terminals, for example, by means of the 'Share' or 'Send' icon, allow you to send all kinds of files via Bluetooth , such as audio files, image, text or even a compressed file in zip format.

You can also even export through the ShareMe app, another Xiaomi alternative compatible with almost any smartphone in the Android ecosystem.

(function() { window._JS_MODULES = window._JS_MODULES || {}; var headElement = document.getElementsByTagName( head )[0]; if (_JS_MODULES.instagram) { var instagramScript = document.createElement( script ); instagramScript.src = ; instagramScript.async = true; instagramScript.defer = true; headElement.appendChild(instagramScript); } })();
