Re: Please help me out

Photos are not on your SIM card.  If you have been using an SD storage card, move it to the new phone.  
If that isn’t working, add the google photo app to BOTH phones and back up all photos to it on the old phone.  Then they will show in the app on the new phone.

   Your new phone also has a mobile transfer function that prompts you to transfer data.  I don’t trust it, but it may transfer most of your data and settings.
