A General Comparison between These Methods

Among the three methods, EaseUS MobiMover Free is your best choice.


Compared to Dropbox, MobiMover costs nothing and requires no membership. Compared to iTunes, MobiMover won't cause data syncing on your iPhone like iTunes, which means the videos transferred from PC via MobiMover won't replace the existing ones on your device.

Besides, more file types are supported by MobiMover. Other than videos, photos, music, ringtones, voice memos, voicemails, contacts, messages, notes, and Safari bookmarks are all transferrable using MobiMover.
