These days, smartphone manufacturers bundle data backup software with their smartphones, so if you happen to upgrade your phone to a new model by the same manufacturer, you can transfer your backup to the new phone with relative ease. In circumstances where the phones are by different manufacturers, the transfer tools of your previous smartphone are of little help as they wouldn’t be compatible with your current smartphone.
