Thanks to user-friendly and streamlined applications, Android smartphones stand out from the crown to become one of the most popular operating systems all over the world.

Most people get used to this operating system, so even if they want to buy a newer mobile phone, they prefer to have the phone with the same platform.

As we all know, as a member of the mobile phone manufacturers, Huawei has become the best-selling Android phone in the market of China. So, once this idea forms in your mind, the question is coming.

What can you do with the files saved on your Huawei phone if you want to update your phone to a newer one? This paper will tell us how to move data from Huawei to Android devices without any obstacles.

The most common method way to move data from Huawei to Android devices is regarding a PC as a medium during the transferring process. This is the traditional method, and some users don’t have other choices except this one.

However, this method also has some disadvantages; I will discuss this later. In this regard, next, I will tell you two methods of moving data from Huawei to Android.

One is the traditional way by using a PC as a medium, and the other is by using the third-party tool, which is called dr.fone. You can follow the instructions step by step as shown below:

Part 1. How to Move Data from Huawei to Android Device with the Help of the Traditional Method

1. Using the USB cable to connect the Huawei device to your PC.

2. Double-click on the “Computer” button on the desktop screen.

Note: If you can’t find the Computer button, you can press the Start icon from the lower-left corner and choose the tab of Computer, which is placed on the right section of the Start menu.

3. In order to launch the phone, you should double-click on the “Huawei smartphone” button, which is presented in the Computer window.

4. It is your turn to check the desired files as you want from the data displayed to you.

5. Right-click the desired data, whether one file or more and then press the Copy button as you can find it in the context menu.

6. Turn off the window of the Huawei phone.

7. Go back to the desktop screen; you can right-click any place and press the Paste button, as you can find in the context menu.

8. Now the transferring process is finished, you can choose to disconnect the phone and the USB cable from your PC.

Step 2: Move Data from Your PC to the New Android Device.

1. To move data from the PC to the Android device, you should use the USB cable to connect the new device to the PC.

2. When the Android device is detected by the PC, please double-click on the “Computer” button on the desktop screen.


3. Double-click on the Android smartphone icon presented in the Computer window.

4. Double-click the folder where you would like to save the data from the window of an Android smartphone.


5. Minimize this window.

6. Choose the files as shown on the desktop screen, which you have copied from the Huawei smartphone.

7. Right-click one of the marked files as you want.

8. Press the Copy option placed on the context menu.


9. Recover the minimize window and go on to right-click any place.

10. Press the Paste button which is placed on the context menu, and wait for a minute; your desired files will be copied to the Android device.


Although this method is simple and easy to follow, there are also some disadvantages to it. Next, I will show you some limitations to it.

1. This method will take you a long time to finish the transferring process, which will make you feel bored.

2. If you don’t have a third-party tool, you are unable to copy the text messages and contacts which are saved in the Huawei smartphone.

3. You must connect and disconnect the equipment unceasingly and can only do one thing at a time.

Part 2. with the Help of dr.fone, You Can Move Data from Huawei to Android Devices within One Click.

In order to save time during the transferring process, you can also ask a third-party tool for help. It will do almost all the jobs for you, so the process will be much easier than you can move data from Huawei to Android devices with only one click.

And one of the best choices to achieve this goal is to ask dr.fone – Phone Transfer for help. This software is so powerful that it can help you move data between mobile phones within one click.

Of course, the PC should be a go-between. dr.fone is the newly developed product which is created by Wondershare in the utility section of the mobile software. dr.fone is available on more than 6000 mobile phone models and is compatible with different platforms such as Symbian, iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

The program has a streamlined and clean interface, which ensures the whole transfer process can go on smoothly. However, you must pay attention that dr.fone may consume many resources of your Mac or Windows PC.

Next, I will show you how to move data from Huawei to another Android device with the help of dr.fone. You can follow the instructions step by step as shown below.
