Transfer data from previous Android device
The first thing that you want to do when you upgrade to a new phone is to transfer data from old phone to the new one. To do so, go to the ‘Tap & Go' option available on Android Lollipop, to instantly restore data including settings, apps, accounts and more from old device to the new phone.
One of the key highlights of the new Nexus smartphones is the Nexus Imprint fingerprint scanner for enhanced security of the phone. To set this up, go to Settings, and click on Security. Now click on Nexus Imprint, and setup a backup password, or pattern. Once done, now set up your fingerprint scanner by adding one or more finger impressions for different features.
Find Lost device
