Last week I bought a new phone.... (Team Android for anyone who was wondering).
When I was prompted to transfer my data from the old phone to the new one, I hit the “skip this step” button without pause.
It had been about 6 years since I purchased a new phone, but my routine hasn’t changed.
When I buy a new phone, I always start from scratch. The same way a person may choose to not bring their clutter from an old home into the new one, I do the same with my phones. I always use these times as an opportunity to “digitally declutter.” Considering the amount of junk and unused data that accumulates in a phone over a period of years, I personally think it’s good practice to just let it all go.
