Before indicating you by thread and by sign how Phone Clone works, let me explain, if you still don't know, what is Phone Clone. If you have never heard of it before, it is a free application for Android and iOS devices (and installed "as standard" on smartphones Huawei), which allows you to easily transfer all data from your old phone to the new one.
