One management tool for all smartphones to transfer files between PC & iOS/Android devices.
When one talks about budget or mid range Android smartphones invariably one tends to gravitate towards a Chinese phenomenon called Xiaomi. Over the last few years, it has made a mockery of what one should expect in a smartphone that costs a third of an iPhone.
The Xiaomi Mi A1 is a pretty solid and well-rounded package. The capable innards are housed in a premium metallic chassis that looks great. In the daylight the dual cameras shine, and its portraits alone merit a much higher price. However, it is always a good habit to regular backup your mobile phone data. You can imagine the embarassing situation it would be if your Mi A1 is stolen, water-damaged, suddenly disabled or suffering from an MIUI update issue, and all your data was gone. Lucky for you, this article can offer you with three simple solutions.
