How to Share Apps between Two Google Nexus Phones?

"I purchased Nexus 6 in November. My question is that I have a broken display Nexus 4 (half of screen works) and repairs at this point are as much as the original price of the unit. So I'm wanting to transfer info (movies, pictures, text files and a few paid apps) from my old Nexus 4 to the new Nexus 6. I'm not the most technical person, but can mutter through with good instructions. What apps would each phone need and what hardware is needed. Or is this even possible? Thanking you in advance for your replies."
