Getting ready

 

Before you clone your phone, you need to make sure the Clone Phone app is installed on your OPPO device. This app is pre-installed on all OPPO smartphones with ColorOS 3.0 or later.

Old phone doesn't have Clone Phone

When the download is complete, locate the file PhoneCloneDownloaded.apk on your phone and select Install.

 

Clone Phone taking too long

 

If you're transferring a lot of data, the process may take a long time. You can monitor its progress by checking your phone. Do not change screens, close the app or switch off either phone, as this will interrupt the transfer.

 

This process consumes a lot of system resources, so your phone may heat up while files are being copied.
