If you have problems with the bitcoin core wallet (takes lots of space/bandwidth, long initial sync, etc), you could try Electrum and Multibit. They are both thin clients, and you can find their description and links on https://bitcoin.org/en/choose-your-wallet

You can find the following in the readme on https://github.com/schildbach/bitcoin-wallet/tree/master/wallet

Quote
Your wallet contains your private keys and various transaction related metadata. It is stored in app-private
storage:
Mainnet: /data/data/de.schildbach.wallet/files/wallet-protobuf (MODE_PRIVATE)

The wallet file format is not compatible to wallet.dat (Satoshi client). Rather, it uses a custom protobuf format
which should be compatible between clients using bitcoinj.

Your wallet can be manually backed up to and restored from external storage:
Mainnet: /sdcard/Download/bitcoin-wallet-backup-<yyyy-MM-dd>

The manual backup files are encrypted using your chosen backup password. You can use OpenSSL to decrypt:
openssl enc -d -aes-256-cbc -a -in <filename>

You can simple take backup of current wallet and use that backup file in new cellphone to restore your wallet.

Menu -> Safety ->  Backup wallet/ Restore wallet.

I've tried electrum, the first time I got into BTC but thenI've svitched to blockchains. They're the best, I'm using theirs online and mobile wallet. I'd recommend you that one.

If you want to access to default file location, you will have to root your phone, but it is a bad idea. And, before you install apps, check permissions and also try to install Antivirus/Security apps like AVG and 360. It scans app which is really helpful.

The blockchain.info wallet is indeed very good, but you should be careful with phishing emails and phishing links. Also, don't forget to enable 2FA for your wallet.

those desktop one, even for non full node, is very complicated. the android  one 'silderbach' is very convenient although there maybe security issue.
