If you are lucky enough to have that particular Android in your hand, then you will not have to go on looking for third party apps or other font apps, as your phone will easily help you do the needed change.

Next, you have to select a font among the few listed below and confirm the option if it is the default font you want to set up.

So in that case you have to go to the ‘Settings’ > ‘Display’ > ‘Fonts’ and from there make the change. According to your Android settings you might have small changes in the process, so just follow the procedures as it is.

How To Backup Contacts In Android Phone

Living in this world today, we are being eventually pushed into the life of technology. Every step we take is towards the modern facilities that we enjoy today with the help of the technology. The best example to take forward is the smart phones. Literally the smart phones have made huge changes in us. That’s why we buy new phones with better features every possible time. 

But doing so has some changes to be done, like syncing contacts and so on. So let’s talk about contact backup in Android. Our life was not the same before the smart phones. We had so many physical works to be done and games to play but now we do them using our smart phone. We walk a mile to pay our utility bills and to do bank transactions but smart phone helps with them all. Like this there are so many things that have changed in us. We save contact numbers of our family, friends, office mates, colleagues and other important numbers to contact them at any moment. These numbers are very important to us as in case we miss them, we will face terrible loss.

At a moment of need we run to the contact list to get help from. Most of them save contacts of officials and many others. So the contact list in your mobile phone is important. Imagine you are buying a new phone, how would you get the contact numbers? Save them one by one? Well, that’s not going to happen right?

All you got to do is backup all the contacts. Some phones like iPhone has the feature of backup by default in them using the iCloud. Though Android phone doesn’t have a direct way, we do have some easy ways to backup contacts. So nothing to worry about losing any contact numbers that you have saved in. All you got to do is select the right or the easy method you prefer and proceed with the rest. So here I am going to give you a few methods with brief information on how to get them done. So come let’s move on for the steps.

Backup Contacts On Any Android Phone

Using Google Sync And Backup

Google has the ability of syncing the contacts to the Gmail ID by default; all we have to do is enable it so that it will start doing the rest by itself.

Firstly go to the ‘Settings > About Phone > Google Account > Google Sync’. Here you have to turn on the contacts. 

There after you can also go to the 'Google Drive' and check if all your data have backup. To check on that you have to go to ‘Google Drive > Press The Hamburger Icon > Backup > App Data > Contact Data’. 

Then you will also be able to download all the contacts with relevant data using the default export option from the Google contact app. To do that, you have to open ‘Google Contacts App’ and browse the ‘Settings’ and then select the ‘Export’ option. 

Then the app will automatically generate a .vcf file on your device that can be used for offline purpose. This can be saved safely somewhere and then in your new phone you can open it up and restore the contacts in it.

Using Third Party Apps

Well, if you don’t want to rely on Google or is a person who occasionally forgets the password of your Google account, the third party app would help you to back up all the contacts to your new phone. There are plenty of other apps in the store, but I personally trust a very few apps which comes up with authentic information. So here I am going to provide you with two such best apps.

Using Super Backup

This app will help you backup not only the contacts but also apps data, SMS data, call logs, calendar and much more.

Firstly you have to get the app named ‘Super backup’ directly from Google playstore to your Android smartphone.

Then tap on the contacts menu and select the multiple options. Then use backup contacts with phone numbers and thereafter the app will automatically generate a .vcf file with the contacts. 

You can either save it in the Google drive or send it to others using the share menu of the default. 

You can also set up a schedule backup periodically by going to the ‘Settings > Schedule Settings > Regular Contacts Backups’ and now select the default options provided. 

At the same time you even have the ability to auto upload files and delete after upload options in this app.

Simple as that, you can schedule it as you desire.

Using Easy Backup

Easy backup: This app is a perfect contact manager app. All you have to do is to open up an account and then it will generate default backup option to create a VCF file and let you share the data with others.

You will be able to see all the contacts in the contacts tab, including the duplicate contacts, contacts with no numbers and similar name contacts. You will be able to remove the unnecessary contacts and also merge the duplicate contacts.

If you wish for a better theme you can change it too from the settings menu. One best thing about this app is it will also show you all the offline backed up contacts of the past.

But one thing that this app doesn’t have in it is the auto generate backup files option.We wish that they update the app with this feature in the future.

Okay, so now we have checked on three ways, where the first one is using the Google account and the other two are third party apps. But all of them are free to use and doesn’t require any extra cost for the usage. You can select any one of the apps mentioned above to backup contacts from your old phone to your new phone without any problem and without losing any data in the process. Hope this would be useful for all the Android users out there. Now you doesn’t have to spend a lot of time thinking on how to send all the contacts from this phone to that.
