    I will recommend you Samsung Galaxy S9. It comes with  5.8-inch Super AMOLED display which features a screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,960 pixels. Under the hood, there are two quad-core processors (2.3 GHz M2 Mongoose and 1.7GHz Cortex A53) and those are seated upon Samsung Exynos 9 Octa 9810 chipset with 4GB of RAM.  A primary camera having 12MP resolution and front camera of 8MP helps to capture high-resolution images. The smartphone derives its energy from a 3,000mAh Li-ion battery inclusive of fast charging support.

    It has all the elements which the user desires from a top brand like Samsung.

    To Transfer files from your phone to another device. 


    1. To transfer data from your phone to a Laptop

         Use the data cable that came along with your phone. Simply plug in your device and start transferring your data to your laptop.

         There are many ways you can transfer your data like Using the Shareit app(https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.lenovo.anyshare.gps&hl=en), Bluetooth etc.
