Cloning my old phone

Which app should I use to clone my old phone to my brandnew FairPhone 4 ?

You can try MyPhoneExplorer

Hello and welcome to the forum. If you had your previous phone connected to a Google account and the backup option was enabled, just choose the restore option (Copy your data) during the setup process on FP4.


Welcome to the forum!

The short answer is: It mainly depends on your old phone, what you are running on your new FP4 and how much you like and/or trust Google.

If you can elaborate a bit on that you might get more helpful answers.


I currently use a Huawei P10 Lite, Android 8.0.0 .
My Fairfone is expected early next week, so I want to be prepared.
Except for Google Fit, Google play films and Play Games cloudopslag all other options for synchronisation are active.

In that case most of your data should already be in the Google Cloud and when you configure your new phone it should ask you to restore/migrate that data as already mentioned by @Razem


That’s a reassurance.
I’ll let you know the outcome.
Thank you all.


Thank you all for the support.
Indeed “Copy your data” during the setup was the solution.
Unfortunately logins are not copied and not all my accounts have been noted in LastPass.
A bit of a drag to recover those.
Anyway, I am very happy with my FP4.
