Transferring data to a new Samsung device can be done conveniently using Samsung’s Smart Switch application. Here are the general steps to transfer your data:

  6. Authorize Connection:
    • On your old device, you may need to authorize the connection to allow data transfer.
  7. Start Transfer:
    • Once the devices are connected, tap “Transfer” or “Start” to initiate the data transfer.
  8. Wait for Completion:
    • The transfer process may take some time depending on the amount of data being transferred. Wait until it’s complete.
  9. Complete Setup on New Device:
    • After the transfer is done, complete the setup process on your new Samsung device.

Using a Samsung Account:

If you have a Samsung account and your data is backed up, you can also use the Samsung account method:

  1. Backup Old Device:
    • On your old device, go to “Settings” > “Accounts and backup” > “Backup and restore.”
    • Enable “Back up my data” and “Automatic restore.”
  2. Sign In on New Device:
    • On your new device, during the setup process, sign in with the same Samsung account.
  3. Restore Data:
    • During the setup, choose the option to restore data from your Samsung account.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the restoration process.


  • Google Account:
    • Make sure your contacts, calendar events, and other relevant data are also synced with your Google account, as this data can be automatically restored when you sign in with your Google account on the new device.
  • App Data:
    • Some app data may not transfer if the apps are not compatible or if the developers haven’t enabled data backup.
  • Compatibility:
    • Ensure that both devices are compatible with Smart Switch, and they meet the necessary requirements.

By following these steps, you should be able to transfer your data seamlessly to your new Samsung device.
