Most new OEM based Android phones come with their own web browser directly by the brand. Like, the Redmi series or Mi phones come with the Mi Browser. It is set to default browser whenever you want to open websites on the phone. So if you ever want to move to Google Chrome as the default browser, here is how you can import your old phone bookmarks to Chrome.

Chrome on Android syncs all your bookmarks, tabs, history and passwords across devices when you login with your Google account. This is useful if you use this same Chrome browser on other devices as well and want similar experience on Android. Most of us like to save important web pages and links as bookmarks when browsing the web on computers or phones.
