The Easiest Way to Transfer Data to a Samsung Galaxy

Ads by Google

If you have recently switched to any device in the Samsung Galaxy line, you can transfer data from your old device to your new one with much ease thanks to one of Samsung’s own products: Smart Switch.

It doesn’t matter if your old phone or tablet is an Android device, an iOS device, or a Blackberry. Smart Switch for Android actually supports all of these devices. It provides different transfer mechanisms — via WiFi Direct, OTG cables, and iCloud — based on the make and operating system of the old device.


With Smart Switch, you can move everything to your new Galaxy device, including photos, videos, and music to contacts, call logs, and WiFi settings. There’s also a companion desktop app to transfer data from your PC or Mac via iTunes.

Keep this support page handy for looking up FAQs and troubleshooting tips. Also, data transfers are often unpredictable, so before you move your data, back up, back up, back up!
