Many people thinking of buying a Sony Xperia Z who currently own an iPhone 4 or iPhone 5 may consider the hassle of transferring all their content and contacts a bridge too far. These people will be pleased to learn that Sony has given this some thought and come up with an easy and user friendly solution. The solution is called Xperia Transfer.
We recently compared the Xperia Z versus iPhone 5 and decided that the Xperia Z was a clear winner against the ageing iPhone 5 - now Xperia Transfer makes the move straight-forward. Our Sony Xperia Z Review can be viewed here which provides a detailed look at the Xperia Z.
Xperia Transfer is compatible with the Sony Xperia Z ( plus Xperia versions : VC, V, T, TX, TL, ZQ ) and is used in conjunction with Sony PC Companion or Sony Bridge for Mac – both of which can be downloaded from sonymobile.com/support.
Once you are ready to transfer your content and contacts from your old iPhone to your new Sony Xperia Z, the most important thing to do is to back-up your iPhone’s content and contacts via iTunes onto your PC. It should be noted that you can’t transfer your iOS apps. The following can be transferred : music from iTunes, photos, videos, text messages, browser bookmarks, calendar appointments, and notes.
Next, click on Xperia Transfer via Sony PC Companion or Sony Bridge for Mac and follow the on-screen instructions. Much easier than a manual transfer and it works. The video below gives a visual run-through of Xperia Transfer.
