This app was mentioned in
with an average of
1-5 million is an irrelevant figure itself. The equivalent sony app has as much as apple's, and barely no one moves to sony. The equivalent samsung app has 10-50 million downloads.
Samsung has a good app for it!
I haven't used it in a long time, but it allows for you to transfer a LOT of your stuff either over Icloud or some other methods. Always happy to see another Android user!
Ok it should be compatible, it seems you have the latest october update.
Just boot your phone in recovery mode by holding power+bixby+volume up buttons, select update via ADB and from a computer run adb sideload update.zip
It takes about 5 minutes to update.
Of course make a backup using Samsung Smart Switch.
(I'm not responsible if anything goes wrong :) )
Package Disabler Pro actually has an option under the 3 dot menu called Disable All Bloatware.
This is what I did, and it worked great for me.
It's not permanent though don't worry, if you want one of the apps back, just uncheck it, and it's immediately back on the device.
For getting messages from an iPhone, Samsung has a Smart Switch App:
I came from an iPhone as well and also had problems getting messages.
Apple is annoying as fuck about this.
I posted a thread and what I did here finally worked:
At a T-Mobile store I'm sure they would have no problem transferring your information from the Note 4 to the S9+. It's actually really easy now using Samsung Smart Switch. It literally moves everything over!
If you'd like them to do it then just ask. They'd be more than happy to help.
> iCloud does full backups, including settings, home screen, texts, pictures, videos, etc.
So does Samsung/Google.
> If you switch Androids does EVERYTHING come back over like with iCloud? How about switching from Samsung to an LG?
Enter Samsung Smart Switch.
No need for backups when most everything is sync'd to google - data like contacts, calendar, photos, and messages (google voice sms integration ftw).
The rest gets moved over when I have the new phone using something like Smart Switch.
You can use Smart Switch my Samsung. However, you have the leverage to transfer all the contents from your phone including Photos, Contacts, Apps and so on. If you don't wish to do that, you can do this instead. Go to Google Play Store from your Samsung A70 and click on My Apps & Games in the Hamburger Menu, then click on Library or Installed and You can see all the apps that you've installed in your other phones, simply click on INSTALL and all of them should install.
Here's the link for Samsung Smart Switch.
You're going to want Smart Switch. It also had an iOS version but im not sure the app name. But I'd start looking for it is "smart switch" ay least.
This will allow you to select apps, and files on what you want from any phone to move to your new samsung device. Takes some time for a lot of files, but works beautiful!
You'll possibly want to turn off Bixby. As well as some of the apps you can't uninstall. If you notice apps that can't be removed, and you don't want, go to Settings > Apps > click the app in question > click "Disable". you'll no longer get notifications or updates and it won't run in the background.
If you want to get into a better launcher environment or customizing widgets, let me know and I can grab you some resources for that as well.
Other than n that enjoy the phone! I look forward to mine next week as well!!
Also five other ways to transfer contacts.
Samsung may have a migration app available. Although if it works for Windows phones, I have no idea.
(Edit) Samsung Smart Switch Mobile is their migration app for your device and it works for Windows phones.
Microsoft has been getting better at supporting Android lately. You could opt to use their apps on your Samsung. They're available on the Play store.
I just got an S6 Active, and my screen has a yellowish tint compared to my S4 Active. I set the screens to the same settings (AMOLED dynamic, max brightness, power save on) before I transferred my files using Smart Switch, and I saw that the blue screen on the S6 was more green compared to the S4. Is there anything I can do?
When you set up your new phone it will ask you two times if you want to move your data to it. Once from Google and the other time from Samsung.
If you don't already use Google photos (which is like the best thing ever) then you need to do both.
And you need to install this onto the old phone. It may be pre-installed
No information like your contacts will be on the new SIM that you order. You'll have to go to the store and have them move your number from your larger SIM on your S5 to the Nano SIM for your S7. If you want them to move all your info over you can ask but it's super easy with the Samsung Smart Switch app. Download the app on both phones and just follow the prompts. It's super easy.
> but I'm concerned about losing contacts, losing useful apps, etc.
This app will allow you to migrate most if not all of those things over. My SO went from an iphone to and S8 wiht minimal issue thanks to this app. I think the only things missing were a couple of apps but they were able to find suitable alternatives pretty easily.
Samsung's own software does a complete backup (literally the entire phone storage) very well.
Check out Smart Switch
You can choose what to backup, and then you can move the backup to whatever cloud storage you'd like.
How about Samsung Smart Switch? It can migrate apps and data from one phone to the next (and I am almost certain the destination phone doesn't have to be a Samsung for it to work).
Smart Switch: [link]
Here is a list of my must have apps: Package Buddy, Minima Pro live wallpaper, Boost for Reddit, Google Opinion Rewards (free google play store money), Crystal Ad Block for Samsung Internet, Lastpass, Authy, Zedge, and Waze for GPS.
Recommended "Tweaks": enable Samsung Pay (it is amazing), set your screen resolution to WQHD+, disable most of the "advanced features" (they are useless minus a few), install a custom theme from the theme store, set up the auto blue light filter, and disable/uninstall any pre-installed apps you won't use.
Stylus tips: just use it for everything you can. You will find what you like using it for. The pen up/ drawing app is fun.
Yes, Samsung Smart Switch:
> * Smart Switch Mobile is already preloaded on Galaxy S7/S7 edge device.
> Galaxy S7/S7 edge owners : Tap [Settings] > [Backup and reset] > [Open Smart Switch] to open Smart Switch Mobile.
If you have an S7, it might already be installed. I would look through your settings if it doesn't show up as an app, or search for "Smart Switch" in the settings search option.
It is Samsung Smart Switch and can transfer content from any Android, iOS or Blackberry device to a new Galaxy Device. Link to the app in the Play store
This app (Samsung Smart Switch)? You can click install on your computer (signed into the same Google account that's on your phone) and it'll let you download it to the phone without you having to do anything on the phone.
Most've been a change from the S4 to the S5 (video tutorial uses an S4).
EDIT: Smart Switch is what Kies is now, which is stupid IMO. You need Kies v3.
Try samsung smart switch. Worked well for my wife when she upgraded from her S4 to a note (it's what they used in the AT&T store...).
I just got an S6 Active, and my screen has a yellowish tint compared to my S4 Active. I set the screens to the same settings (AMOLED dynamic, max brightness, power save on) before I transferred my files using Smart Switch, and I saw that the blue screen on the S6 was more green compared to the S4. Is there anything I can do? I've also used this guide on xda to try and fix the saturation, but it still looks yellow to me.
Okay! So I figured it out. Please note that I did this on a PC with an AT&T Samsung Note 4 SM-910A to a new Note 4. I did not have any phone/screen lock activated on the host phone when it was broken.
Downloaded Samsung Smart Switch on the host phone through Google Play's site.
Downloaded Samsung Smart Switch for PC.
Ran Smart Switch on PC with host phone connected. I clicked "Backup" and it did the rest. Took about 30 minutes.
Disconnected host phone and hooked up new phone. I clicked "Restore" and it did the rest. Took only 4 minutes!
5 Good to go!
I mean... google? I'm guessing you want to "clone" your phone. You can't really. The only thing that will allow you to sync stuff is making sure you're signed in on the original device with a google account (and double checking everything synced under accounts in the settings) and signing in again with the same account on the new device. Or for just pure content transferring you can try Smart Switch. Buying a new device usually means you loose your app data. So you'll have to re sign in to your services and apps and loose your killer high score of 878 in candy crush ect. This is true for anything even Iphones.
Yesterday. Spent most of the day getting it setup. It has a few quirks, but it's looking good. I am seeing higher than normal battery drain, so I'm hoping that something comes out quickly from Samsung and Verizon to fix the issue. BTW, check out the Samsung Smart Switch app. It will copy a lot of your settings and files from your old Android or IOS device to your new s6. It doesn't get everything, but it does get enough to save you time. I thought I had lost all of my texting history, but Smart Switch copied it for me. One last thing, I wrapped my phone in an Incipio Dual Pro case. I know, I'm hiding most of the good stuff, but it is rather low profile, and it does save the glass. I'm still hoping that someone comes out with a tempered glass screen protector so I keep the screen looking nice. Anyone have a recommendation for a decent screen cover while I wait? All in all, I am happy and still exploring the phone. Oops, I completely forgot to remove the plastic over the camera lens. How about you Jaimizzle14, did you get your phone?
you should def look into smart switch. it transfers files, texts, apps, videos, photos, contacts, annnd i think thats it. maybe settings? i dont recall. but its super nice, its over wifi, and its quick.
i believe you can download it on the s4. i downloaded on my s5 last night and transferred everything (2gbs of vids, 2000+ texts, lots of photos) in less than an hr easily. i want to say under 30 minutes.
Samsung's backup app: [link]
EDIT: SHould be pre-loaded on your phone already?
Samsung Smart Switch App.
Yes ! It's from Samsung and it's called smart switch! Here ya go [link]
This could work. Not 100% though
Samsung actually has an app called Samsung Smart Switch that will do all of this.
SMART SWITCH by samsung
Samsung Smart Switch.
Here is a link to the app on the Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sec.android.easyMover
Another option from Samsung
Think you can do it using the Samsung Smart Switch app
Did you try Samsungs Smart Switch app? It supports iOS devices...
Depending on what model phone you're getting, this app can directly import your iCloud backup.
I believe this app is pre-installed on a lot of Samsung phones
You mustve got the wrong app then. The link I provided is for the computer. For the phone you can use the app at this link.
Probaj onda s ovom aplikacijom, nisam ju koristio pa ne mogu tvrditi da radi
My friend used this app its called smart switch
Works with android and iphones you have to download the app on both devices
Thanks for the input. I have a few questions though.
Is this what you mean by samsung smart switch?
I am using Odin v. 3.10 and it really doesn't make sense. There isn't any PDA option or anything. I was wondering if you could guide me through it since I had trouble last time as well. Attached is a picture of the program.
I think once I understand the above - and using Odin properly - I will try the first method. If it doesn't work, I'll attempt a fresh restore.
Last question: I keep hearing about recovering partitions. How am I supposed to do that? Simply by using a program eg. TWRP?
The description in the Play store lists lots of other phones.
Wonder if anyone has ever tried this from a non-Samsung device:
Samsung Smart Switch
Samsung has a migration tool/app for your situation, Samsung Smart Switch Mobile:
Switching OS's used to be such a pain. That plus this makes switching back and forth regularly feasible
Huh? This already exists in reverse [link]
You can transfer Contacts, Calendar, text messages, photos, music (DRM free content only, Not supported for iCloud), videos (DRM free content only), call logs, memos, alarms, Wi-Fi settings
from an iPhone
