Data Transfer - swapping memory cards

swapping memory cards

Ease of use - swapping memory cards isnt very easy because IPhones dont have external memory, therefore, this is impossible to swap memory cards. Sometimes the phone takes a long time to recognise the card in the person with them.

Range - this will only work if you are next to the person or with them

Speed - It's not a very quick process as it involves swapping cards and taking out batteries. Also the phone has to recognise the memory card.

1-to-1 or one-to-memory - this is a 1-1 transfer
