Send Video From iPhone to Android Without Losing Quality
DearMob iPhone Manager is the best way to send video from iPhone to Android without losing quality, no matter how long your video is or whether it is 4K or not.

So besides videos, you can also send photos, music, ebooks, podcasts, and so on to your Android devices.
