Smart Switch


A sure and secure way to move
your data to Galaxy


When switching to Galaxy, you don't have to say goodbye to your old stuff. The data and content you were using before - your photos, videos, contacts, calendar events, notes and device settings - get to stay with you on your new Galaxy.

Data transfers quickly and easily from your old device to a new Galaxy, represented by a pair of scooters zooming from left to right, one framed by the simulated bezels of an old device and another framed by the shape of a new Galaxy device. Between the two vehicles is a blurred motion effect, indicating speediness.
Woman is shown standing in the middle of her living room with her hands on her hips. She stands in front of a plastic Smart Switch tube coming down from the ceiling. Check marks are shown all items in the living room. Underneath the plastic Smart Switch tube text reads: “Upgrade with easy switching.”

Even when coming from another OS,
it’s easy to make the switch


Moving to a Galaxy from another OS doesn’t have to be hard. Smart Switch can transfer data from many different devices, making the upgrade to Galaxy a seamless process for everyone. Now that’s smart.

On the left, a Galaxy smartphone, Galaxy tablet, and iphone show the loading symbol on their screens. Arrows directed toward the new Galaxy device on the right indicate that data is being transferred. The interface of the Galaxy device shows Smart Switch copying data from the old device, with progress indicated in percentage and minutes remaining.
