How to transfer files from a phone to a tablet? If you need to transfer files from iPhone to Samsung Tab A or copy data from Samsung Galaxy to Amazon Fire HD, what are the best methods to transfer and copy files between the devices?

1. Transfer Files from Phone to Tablet through Bluetooth

All the devices, including iPhone, Android and Windows, have built-in Bluetooth. Once you pair the phone with your tablet with Bluetooth, you can transfer files from your phone to a tablet with ease.

Open Settings from your app tray or notification bar on the Android tablet. Locate the Wireless and Networks area and click Bluetooth.

Turn on the Bluetooth connection on your phone and confirm the connection between your tablet and your phone in the paired device section interface.

Open File Manager on your phone and find the file to transfer from the phone to your tablet. Press on the file or tap the menu button then select Share on the toolbar and choose Bluetooth to prompt the file transfer.

Tap Accept on your tablet.

(The files could only be transferred in the case of the two devices share a same Wifi connection.)

Bluetooth is convenient to sync files between phones and tablets. But there are downsides:

  1. As a wireless connection, it is not a good option to sync large files.
  2. The connection might not be successful due to the mismatched versions of Bluetooth.

2. Transfer Files from Phone to Tablet with Dropbox

Cloud service is another way to transfer files from phones to tablets.

Download and install Dropbox on both your phone and tablet.

Launch Dropbox on your phone and log in your account. Then create a new folder for file transfer, and tap Plus icon to open the file upload interface.

Select the files you want to transfer, and check the desired files then tap Upload to transfer files from your phone to the tablet.

Open Dropbox on your tablet and log in your account, then select and download the files uploaded from your phone.

Besides the limitation of a 5GB free storage, there are also some encode problems to download the files from Dropbox to your tablet, and it would take a long time for the procedure done if without a stable Wi-Fi connection.
