It depended on what data types you need to transfer, because there are many Android tools work with your issue, like Samsung Kies, If you only need to transfer photos, videos, songs and other files from Android to another phone, I think the Samsung Kies would be your best choice, but if you need to transfer messages, contacts, apps from Android to another, Kies won't help you due to it doesn't identify your SIM or internal memory.
Look how it works:
which provides two ways to help transfer data from Android to another Android  with easy. AS for me, I would recommend to try Mobile Transfer Software, which is highly recommended for phone users as it makes it extremely easy to transfer everything from one Android to another without loss of quality, according to your need, you can choose the right methods.

For anyone that may be looking for answers using Samsung Kies, there are 2 versions of the application and they run differently depending on which Android version the phone connected it to is using.

Let me make known to you that Samsung Kies does NOT support the new Samsung Galaxy S6.
You will need to download Samsung Smart Switch for you to transfer everything. Hope this helps.
Best of luck.

Connect Android phones to the computer
Connect both of your Android phones to the same computer with USB cables. Phone Transfer should detect their models in seconds. Make sure the Source and the Destination are at the right place. Otherwise, click the Flip button to change their places at your order.

Transfer data from one Android to another Android
When all the contents you want to transfer are checked, click Start Copy. The process will be shown in the pop-up window. When it's done, click OK.

Check NFC Support

Before you try to transfer data between two Android devices, you will need to ensure they both support NFC. Many Android smartphones support NFC, as do Google’s Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets. However, other Android tablets generally don’t come with NFC support.

Ensure NFC is present, and that both NFC and Android Beam are enabled. If either feature is disabled, enable it.

Open the Content You Want to Share
Now you will need to navigate to the content you want to share. For example, here’s how you would share various types of content:

Web Page: Open it in Chrome.
YouTube Video: Open it in the YouTube app.
Map Directions or a Location: Open the Google Maps app and pull up the directions or the location.
Contact Information: Open the contact card in the People app.
An App: Open its page in Google Play.
Photos: Open a photo in the gallery. You can also send multiple photos by opening the gallery, long-pressing a photo’s thumbnail, and then tapping all the other photos you want to send to select them. With the photos selected, start the beaming process.

Many included Android apps support Android Beam, but you aren’t just restricted to the built-in apps. App developers can implement their own NFC features, so you may be able to share data from another app, if it’s NFC-enabled.

I Do these transferes a lot. I think the best way to transfer is by cloning your old device to the new one. USE SHAREIT. its a free app and sends data fast.
