Copy Data with Samsung Smart Switch

Copy Data with Samsung Smart Switch

Continuing the  previous article, this time  I will use the Samsung Smart Switch (SS) app  on a PC/laptop to back up the data on HP.  The app can be downloaded here  with a  size of about 39.2 MB. The installation process is quite easy, click Next and Finish and if the  PC / laptop at that time is still connected to the  internet, then it  will be checked for application updates, wait until you’re done and then click OK.  Oh yes, I will back up data from Samsung Galaxy A70 (SM-A705F)  and Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) (SM-A750GN).



Here’s the guide :

1. In the SS  application that has been opened, connect the HP device to be backed up (in this case I backup the Samsung Galaxy A70 first). If your device uses a password, please open it first.

2. Select Allow if the image appears as follows.

3. If  your HP device is connected, click Backup.

4. Select the data to back up and then click OK and wait for it to finish and  then click OK.



5. SS will inform the data that  is not backed up and the result of the backup, click OK to close it.

6. Next I will remove the Samsung Galaxy A70 and connect the Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018) HP.  Unlike  before, this time the  SS  application detected an application update for the  Samsung Galaxy A7 (2018), click Update – Continue – Continue and wait for it to finish and  then click OK and  will go back to the start page.



7. Repeat steps 3 and 4 as above  until the result is like step 5.



So the step to back it up, how to restore it?  it’s actually easy, just click Restore and follow the  next step, but at that time  I didn’t have a  chance to try it.  Just pray that I have  a chance to discuss it.  Thank you.

Moving Data with Samsung Smart Switch

Moving Data with Samsung Smart Switch

Usually if we buy a new cellphone, surely we want all the data in the old cellphone to move to a new cellphone, such as pictures, songs, contacts, etc. If the new cellphone is still one brand with an old cellphone, the possibility is not too difficult, because the data transfer application is already available from the cellphone. Constraints will be found if different brands, it requires third-party applications to process it and not necessarily perfect.

This time I will move data from Samsung J5 to Samsung A7 with the Smart Switch (SS) application that is available on each of these HPs. Before doing, make sure the battery condition in each HP above 50% is sufficient for the duration of the transfer. Here’s the guide.

  1. Run the SS application on both phones. Click Agree and Start for the next process.

  1. On Samsung J5, select Send data and on Samsung A7, select Receive data.

  1. Select Wireless on both of these phones as connecting media.

  1. On Samsung J5, select the data you want to transfer, then click Send.

On the Samsung A7, select the OS from the old cellphone, in this case I choose Android.



  1. The search process between HP will take place and on Samsung A7 will ask for confirmation to receive data from Samsung J5, click Receive for the next process.

  1. For the finished time depends on the amount of data that is moved, and if it has been completed, then the configuration on the new HP will be similar (depending on the features of HP) with the old cell phone, among others, telephone call logs, SMS, contacts, email configuration (enough re-enter the password for verification), third-party applications will also be installed on the new HP according to the old cellphone, but not including the previous login and data, for the WA application to be backed up via Google so that it will be restored later, including the wallpaper will also be installed automatically.

Besides the method above, there is also a Smart Switch application for PC, if there is a chance again I will try it. Thanks.
