Developed by Samsung, Smart Switch was designed for a single purpose: to help you migrate to a Samsung phone and take everything with you easily and without complications. Migrating from another phone to a Samsung smartphone can be a difficult, long, and risky process. Having sensitive data (emails, contacts, photos, etc.) on your source phone complicates things even further, as you need to make sure you don’t lose any of the data.
By using it, you don’t have to go through the difficult process of creating backups, transferring them to the Samsung phone, and then carefully restoring everything. The software just works and is able to transfer your data safely over to your new phone.
It works with phones from major players in the industry, such as Apple (iOS), LG, Nokia and BlackBerry (BlackBerry OS). You don’t need to be a tech wiz to use the Samsung Smart Switch. The program is simple to use because it comes with a comprehensive and helpful wizard. You just connect the old phone to your computer, run the software and follow the wizard to perform a comprehensive backup of the data on your computer.
You then connect the Samsung phone and use the wizard to transfer the data from the backup to the phone. Simple and effective! What does it transfer? Well, everything important. Messages, contacts, photos, videos, call logs, audio files, calendars, bookmarks, memos, wallpapers – all are transferred to your new Samsung phone.
However, be warned that it may take up to an hour to transfer the data, depending on its size. Don’t worry; the program doesn’t freeze and displays a success message when the transfer is complete. The program will try to also migrate your applications to the Samsung phone. However, not all of them will be compatible, especially when migrating from an iOS or BlackBerry OS device. In this case, the application will suggest apps that have the same functionality as the old ones.
Bottom line, the application doesn’t require any technical proves to use effectively. You don’t have to use multiple, specialized tools to transfer all the data from your old phone. Also, you can rest assured that the software is able to work correctly with the latest Samsung phones, as it is developed by Samsung itself.
The program can also restore your phone to an older state if you have created a backup at some point in the past.
