Method 3: Transfer Data from Android to Samsung A42 with Google Account
I assume you're asking how to move your contacts, pictures, apps and other content from your old Android phone to the new Samsung Galaxy A42. If you're transferring from an Android phone, Google makes it easy. For this reason, it is best to put it in a place where you can access the secure WiFi, so as not to use the data for this operation.
First, make sure the information on your old phone is backed up:
* Open the settings app settings app for the device.

* Click system, then advanced, and then backup.

* If backup to Google cloud drive is not turned on, turn it on. Then wait for the backup to complete. If the backup is turned on, you will be able to check under active backup to see the time of the last backup of applications, call logs, contacts, etc. If it appears to have been backed up in the last few minutes, it is best to move on to the next step.

To transfer all content to your new phone:
* On your new phone, go to settings app settings app.
* Click on account, and then click O + to add an account.
* Select Google and log in to the Google account to which you backed up your data. (if you have set up security on your new phone, you may have to enter a password or password during this step.)
* You will be asked if you want to restore or download all synchronized information. (I'm not sure what you'll see because it's been a while since I did.) Yes, of course.
* You should see all the downloaded apps, contacts, etc. on your new phone.
