How often have we struggled with transferring data from one mobile device to another? And how frustrating and soul-wrenching it is to lose your valuable photographs and important contacts or files during transfer? Quite often, we probably don’t even have a backup of this lost data. To avoid this, some of the cautious ones among us end up taking multiple backups on various other devices yet it doesn’t really spell a smooth transition. Also using cloud services has its storage limit and exposes it to risk of hack-attacks. To counter these problems and assist in smooth data transfer between one mobile device to another, Xiaomi released a Mi Mover App almost over a month back.
Mi Mover App
Xiaomi recognises the challenges faced for data transfer on mobiles, especially when you have just purchased a brand new smartphone and are trying to get it working smoothly with your pre-existing data on earlier mobile phone. The company realised the problem when the users were trying to switch the data to their new Xiaomi smartphone, which in effect inspired the making of Mi Mover App.
The App – Mi Mover is released so far for the Android Platform to facilitate the data migration between two mobile devices. The App is compatible with all the devices running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS and other upgraded versions.
The Mi Mover App works on the simple plug-and-play operation. All you need to do is download Mi Mover from Google Playstore. The best part is you can download and use the App on any non-Xiaomi device. Once you have downloaded the App on your non-Xiaomi device the data backup can be created on the cloud including Contacts, Document files, Apps, Music, Movies etc, all at one go. Once you get the new mobile, you can easily connect the two devices with just a QR code and it will auto sync all the data from your old device to the new one.
This is very different from other third party solutions available online today
1) The App directly comes from the company – Xiaomi. Hence it is bound to carry more credibility and trust as far as the data security is concerned. The data is seamlessly transferred between the two devices without any exposure to Third Party Apps or other devices. This is sure to have major impact on consumer decision for using the App. Most importantly, the App is free-to-download from Google Playstore.
2) The App is also different from standard Auto Sync and cloud services available otherwise. For example, Google only syncs your contacts and other files or pictures synced on the cloud in case you have enabled Google Photos. Mi Mover on the other hand supports multiple data formats and syncs all the data including Music, Apps and other content, thus relieving you of the hassle of having to download it all over again.
3) The App transfers the data at a pretty good speed of 6MB per second which is faster than restoring data from cloud, hence doesn’t take the long time to sync. Additionally the transfer of mobile data is completely wireless and needs no internet connectivity since the new device is connected in a range as a Wi-Fi hotspot.
The App addresses a major issue faced by most users while buying a new Android smartphone – the pain and agony of transferring data from one’s old phone to a new one, without having to rely on Third Party Apps or cloud syncs. If you too need to directly transfer all your treasured data from old android phone to a brand new device, then Mi Mover is a perfect App for you.
