    Storage on my OP3 is almost full (98%) but I am changing to an OP5 with 128GB. How can I use OP Switch for the transfer as I don't have enough free space on my OP3 to back up first.
    I'm so sacred of losing my app data, especially text Messages from various apps (maybe silly sounding but true).
    I was thinking maybe I'll download / transfer all my photos and videos (which are taking up huge storage space) on my laptop and on Google Cloud, and then try and see if I'll have enough room for the backup! Grrrrr.
    Kind of frustrating and counter-productive if one is low on storage on their phone and can't switch, because they can't backup!

    I would say create multiple backups on OnePlus Switch like one including messages and contacts or other including some other stuff or you can use Oneplus Cloud Backup

    Hi. I appreciate you trying to help, but I'm not sure if you understood the issue at hand my friend.
    The issue is that because my phone storage is full it won't let me back up!
