Therefore, many Sony fans or old users are willing to buy this fully new Sony Xperia 1 V to replace the old one.
When buying a new mobile phone, we usually need to transfer the data from the old mobile phone to the new one, so as to continue to use our contacts, text messages, photos and other data. The following are three simple and commonly used data transfer methods:
Use backup and restore function: Many mobile phone manufacturers provide backup and recovery function, which can back up the data on the old mobile phone to the cloud or computer, and then restore the data on the new mobile phone. For Sony Xperia 1 V, you can use the official Xperia Companion software provided by Sony for backup and recovery.
Use third-party applications: There are many third-party applications that can help you transfer data from your old mobile phone to your new one.
