    Edit , I didn't see the Samsung only thought it would work between android phones. ⭐ trying to transfer between moto and Samsung wifi forget about it, cable it keeps telling me to change the USB to MPT which nothing in the USB controller says that anymore and selecting the file transfer doesn't work either. Between my 2 galaxy phones it's works fine.

    I've never had a problem and I've used it every year since the S6. I now have 3 Samsungs and none of which have had issues with the app either. There's also no bloatwear so idk what they're talking about. This is one of, if not the most efficient transfer apps actually on Android, and obviously iPhone. If you're having issues with it, I suggest going to your carrier to do the transfer. They are trained and well versed on Smart Switch.

    Samsung Switch is awesome! I've had a new Samsung for a while but have had a deep fear of the change. Had so much on my old phone that I didn't want to lose. Finally decided to bite the bullet after reading about this app, although I was very skeptical. Oh my!! I used the WiFi option. It did take a little over an hour but when I opened the new phone....IT LOOKED JUST LIKE THE OLD ONE!! All my apps, pics, games; etc...were not only there but in the same place. Just awesome!!

    Still very impressed. Backed up my previous phone to a new phone, followed the instructions, no issue. Be mindful that the USB cable does not move, else disconnects. Also, one phone must have USB Charging changed to "Data Transfer", else one or both phones will just shut off. After the transfer, give it some time. It took about ½hr after the transfer to be a fully functional clone.

    The last time I had tried to use this app I was not impressed..it seemed to just randomly dump some of my apps on the new device, didn't sign me in didn't switch my googles. THIS TIME WAS SO MUCH BETTER!! Once I put both devices on same wifi it asked me what to send to new phone, and sent my contacts, all my text messages, my background my custom icons, all of it! Even my settings! The worst part of getting a new device is having to set it all up, this just saved me HOURS!!

    A while ago, moving between Pixel phones, everything just worked. I love my Samsung phones, but this app has always been awful. This last time, I lost a lot of internal storage data, including podcasts, which I can't download again. Some apps didn't restore properly, so I had to clear data, including medication history, saved games. Some links to Play Store broke, so to restore purchases, I had to uninstall and reinstall apps. Please grant this app permissions to /Android/* and copy everything.

    I'm really disappointed in this app and do not recommend it. I used it recently to transfer all data from my my Galaxy Note 10+ to a new S22 Ultra. The process seemed to go just fine, and there were no errors. However, I discovered later that several apps and settings did not transfer to my new phone, which caused me to spend a lot of time figuring out what happened. For instance, I use and previously paid for multi instances of the Time Recording Pro (TRP) app. After the SS transfer, the TRP app no longer recognized my payment. After writing the TRP developer, I learned that Smart Switch did not transfer the required DynamicG utility plugin app that monitors the multi instance license, and I had to manually install it from the Play Store.

    After the last update I can't see videos I recorded myself of my service fur baby. It's just gray. Also my contacts doesn't show all contacts like at the right side it used to show a letter from A to Z. I could touch the letter I was trying to find like S for Sam. Now the letters on the right side of contacts are gone. When I text for a group I am administrator over it only shows part of my message. I'm so upset with this app. You did a update 3days ago and that's what I'm facing. See just stopp

    Absolute waist of time! I've been using smart switch for 5 years! I've never had an issue with it until now. My wifi is perfectly fine. It connects to everything else just fine, but it WILL not connect with this app. I've been trying to connect with wifi for 2 hours now! PLEASE DO NOT download this app!!!! It will just aggravate you!

    Crashes on my PC. You had a working version then forced me to update it on my PC. Now I have 4.3.22053_2, and when I plug my phone into my PC, Smart Switch crashes on the PC. The window just disappears. I can no longer back up my phone. I downloaded the new version on my phone too, and it didn't help. Wish I could give zero stars, because after years of trying, you had one that worked. Now you've broken it.

    Absurdly complicated app that works when it is in the mood and doesn't work whenever it feels like it. The regular android-provided facility to switch from an old phone to a new one is so much better and more reliable. Unfortunately, Samsung hijacks the process as soon as you try to set up a new Samsung phone, not allowing the regular android process to even kick in. Total waste of time and makes setting up a new phone unnecessarily complicated and time-consuming.

    Going from note 20 to S22. It will not even show the option to transfer photos from the SD card. It transfers video but photos is not on the list. I have tried multiple times and have screenshots I can share to prove it. This was one of the main reasons I need smart switch for. Also, the Samsung pass didn't transfer and I had to manually export from note and import into new phone.

    This app sucks. 5 times it spent over 3 hours transferring from one phone to the other. And I don't know what it transferred because most of what I have on my old phone isn't on the new phone. I used this app once before and it worked great. It transferred everything and even put everything in the exact same place on me new phone as the old one. But not this time. It won't even transfer 1/4 of my stuff. I don't know what happened to it, but it sucks now.

    This App doesn't show updated progress of the data transfer. More than 40 minutes ago the phone said there were 37 minutes left and status is not changing. If there is any problem in the transfer, they should tell that as well. The way things are, I don't know if the process is almost done, is stuck or what. How can you call yourselves engineers?

    Does not connect, does not work. Also wants way too many permissions. How does an app that copies data to another immediately next to it need location data? // There is no reason to contact anyone. The app does not connect over wireless as you can see in other reviews. I have transferred the data without this app that doesn't work. This symptom is not special to me. Many others are repporting the same thing. Your app is bad.

    Phone to phone transfer does a fair job. It will basically clone the new (receiving) phone. But keep in mind, if the old phone had any problem apps (or other issues) the new phone will inherit those as well. Using this app to make a back-up via usb-c flash drive has a big limitation. To Restore that backup, the options are, all or nothing, (useless). Unlike a phone to phone transfer where you can pick and choose what you want to send and receive.

    Terrible app. I used it to transfer data from pixel 1 to 53a 5G. It transferred only phone contact and messages. All other programs were reinstalled without any of my settings. List of medications, reminders, shopping lists, contacts from messenger, viber, Skype. I suspect it didn't install some phone apps properly. There is no access to voicemail. The old one is sitting on the screen like a new one for ever.

    This app is absolute garbage. It's time estimates are off by orders of magnitude. IT LITERALLY DRAINS ONE OF THE PHONES CONNECTED TO IT WITHOUT WARNING and there's no way to turn it off. Have 2 phones charged to 80%? don't worry, one of the phones with inefficiently sap power from the other until one dies before the transfer is done. And the only way to figure out it's happening is a tiny little sliver of a notification that once clicked makes you scroll ALL THE WAY to the bottom of the pop-up menu only to find out that you can switch the direction of the battery drain, but can't turn it off all together!!! I honestly want to know who shoehorned this stupid ripoff of a much better google pixel feature (you can turn it off completely) into this app and who approved it. Because it literally kills the ability to transfer data from an old phone to a new phone without a wireless charging puck.
