    Since updating my Samsung phone to the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 this works great. Next is from them. Seamless and worry-free, Smart Switch makes it supremely easy to transfer photos, files and important data from your old mobile devices to your Galaxy S and Note series. Even if your old phone is not a Galaxy device, transferring data to a new Galaxy phone via USB Cable, Wi-Fi or computer is done in a flash

    Hi Love Smart Switch (well most of the time). Use it to transfer music between my Mac and my Android Phone. Problem is music artist list in SS is random. Is there any way to organise it so that when adding music using the app, that the music artist list is presented in alphabetical order? It's a pain trying to find the artist you want to add music to when they are all jumbled up!

    The most useful thing on earth! This app takes all the hassle out of transferring to a new phone, and it misses very little. Even my icons are arranged the same way as on the old phone, my memo notes are all there, my podcast data is all there, even apps which no longer exist in the play store have been side loaded so I haven't lost them. Very quick and easy. About the only thing it doesn't do is set up your WhatsApp data, you still have to do that yourself. Really really good.

    It's a fine app, does what it promises. It would be even better if I wouldn't need this app to access my Google account backup to set up my new phone. It does the same, just with extra steps. But, we already know that Samsung likes to make stuff bulky, so it's not like I couldn't expect it.

    I had just backed up my phone using Smart Switch and a day later my phone crashed and I had to do a factory reset. Smart Switch worked fantastic at restoring my phone back to the way it was. It restored about 90% of all my settings which saved me a lot of setup time. The only downside that I see is when doing a backup, the percentage indicator and estimated time is way off. This has only happened with the latest updated.

    I was hoping for it to copy everything from my previous phone (Pixel 3a) but it didn't. I tried to connect it a second time but it didn't recognize my old device after trying both wireless (it never let me introduce the code that the old phone was giving to connect) and cable options. It is my first time using Samsung so I hope to get the handle of it...

    Used this app on my new Samsung A 01 and it worked for the first time. (didn't have a SD card yet. Inserted a 64GB (class 10) cards, to finish the file transfer and the icon on the A 01 was gone. Tried to download it again. The icon was correct, but the icon that downloaded and installed was not the blue & white S. Went to this website, and it now tells me the Samsung smart switch is not compatible with the A 01. What's going on, it worked just a few days ago and now....not? Still working OK on my old S5 phone!

    The idea was great but the actual usage of samsung smart switch was an overall time that was spent wastfully. The switch of information that i were to do,can only be done by the usage of wifi. Though i shall say. If i were to know the correct and complete detailed purpose of this app it would be of great use and could of certainty be modified by the developer to meet the needs of those of intrest. developer contact never responded to vi email. Which was a dissapointment even months later no resp

    Useless App! The app developed by Samsung for Samsung devices is NOT COMPATIBLE with Samsung Galaxy M11, a latest samsung galaxy phone. What an waste of time! Clarification because Samsung developers weren't able to understand - The data receiving device is Samsung GALAXY M11. On this Samsung Galaxy phone, we were unable to installed the Switch app, as it says the App in not compatible with the phone!

    Would not transfer anything between Galaxy S7 to Galaxy S20 ultra. Just hangs at the beginning with pulsing circles. No information on what it is doing or trying to do on either side. Seems to connect, i.e. sound from both units, on S7 i hit allow and then the circles just keep on pulsing until they time out.

    Painfree way of upgrading to new phone. Let me move all of my phone call history, SMS text history including attachments, contact lists, photos, screenshots, downloads and most apps from a Motorola Z Play to a Samsung S20+. It wasn't able to bring Firefox settings and history or alarm clocks over. Also insisted on latest versions of some games which meant I couldn't keep the older ad-free versions but overall awesome app.

    Very easy way to backup and upgrade my phone! It keeps most of my settings...so, I don't have to upgrade from scratch when switching to a new phone! If it gave me an option just to backup & copy an individual app from old phone to the new phone, without having completely restore the whole backup! That would be perfect!

    I am having the hardest time transferring ALL of my data from one Note 8 (had 4 years) to the next (refurbished warranty replacement) and am unable to receive any calls, hangs up on outgoing calls and texts are ridiculous. What in the transfer, if anything, could cause this problem? I've received 3 phones and they're all doing the exact same thing. HELP!

    This app is terribly programmed; it couldn't even do basic stuff like copying text messages. My phone has an octa-core processor, 128GB RAM, and it buckled with only around 100,000 texts? Failed even only taking 6 mo of messages. It also would sometimes lose the connection mid-transfer and, although sometimes it would allow me to pick up while I left off, many times it would make me start from the beginning, which was awful because I had already run the process for 20-30 minutes several times. The oversights of the people who made these apps cost me hours of my life trying to do something basic that a competent programmer would have been able to do with minutes on modern hardware like what my phones had. Absolutely inexcusable, especially given the hundreds of dollars I pay for my phone and, over the years, my phone contract. I give 2 stars not 1 because when I disabled text messages I was able to copy the other settings and material to my new phone and those all went seamlessly. But texts are important to me and I can't in good faith give more than 2 stars after the amount of time this app wasted for me. This app is the sort you only need to use once in a while, when you get a new phone, and in that critical period, it failed to work the way I wanted it to.

    Used this to transfer all my data and apps from Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge 2 Samsung Galaxy s20 +. It transferred most of the stuff. But the main thing that was important to me is my contacts it more than doubled them I had 636 to start with and I ended up with 1441. That doesn't even make any sense. So I had to get rid of the new phone because my old phone at least still had the correct number of contacts in it. I had to delete everything from the Verizon cloud. Then all my old phone to bkup 2 cloud

    frustrating, because dysfunctional. wanted to copy a subpartition from one samsung galaxy tab s5e to another tablet (same model). the app will not install on the subpartition, so transferring the data is very tedious & involves some data going missing on the new system. I tried transferring everything via the main partition, but that only junked up the new device full of all the stuff I did not want & left all the stuff I did want on the old device.

    Using Samsung SmartSwitch, ALL of my Google Contacts were DUPLICATED to the local phone contacts and, subsequently, LINKED / JOINED together by Google. Since android doesn't show WHICH copy you're editing thereafter, I now have mixed verions of contacts. I now need to manually UNLINK each Local contact from Google contacts, then delete the local copy, to clean up this ****** mess.
