Most mobile phones At the moment it has a simple configuration that allows you to transfer all the information from one mobile phone to another, but if you have a new smartphone there are a series of applications that you cannot miss when you buy it and that will make your life easier.

If you are going to transfer all the apps from your old phone, you will not need to install them again, but this is not always possible. Then, What should we install when we have a new phone? There are a series of essential apps and tools that you should take into account.

Management and tools

There are all kinds of tools that we can have on our mobile phone to manage our files, access our documents in the cloud or find anything.

If we have information in the cloud we can download applications that we use daily, such as Amazon Photos, Dropbox or Google Drive that will allow us to access the files wherever you are from the mobile phone or even synchronize backup copies from time to time that will ensure that our files are always protected in the cloud.

It will depend on what you want or usually use whether you install one or the other but there are excellent options like VSCO or Lightroom to retouch photography, for example.

Home automation

Everything around us is connected and that will mean that we will have to have applications to control what surrounds us, but installing them will depend on the devices you have at home. For example, if you have smart light bulbs from brands like Tapo or Philips Hue You will have to install the corresponding application to control them remotely. The same thing happens if we have smart speakers from brands like Google or Amazonthat we will have to install the Home or Alexa application to manage the different devices we have.
