    the usb cable that comes  with the android should do the trick, then use a file manager like  Astra File Manager to locate the file and to install.

    Bluetooth File Transfer (Android) - v5.00

    There are apps you can use to transfer files over Wi-Fi, if you can't find the cable. I've heard good things about AirDroid recently:


    Hello, you should use a standard USB cable provided with your Android.  If no cable was provided, you can just check the mini USB connection in your Android and get a USB cable for it.

    Generally you need the usb cable that came with your phone.

    Try this to do it without data cable.

    Go to:

    upload your apk file, and it will give you a qr code,
    using which you can install your file.
