How can I reinstall preloaded applications after factory reset in Samsung Galaxy S8+?
During setup wizard after factory reset, you can select the applications* which you want to install.
(* Apps from Google apps : Mandatory, Apps from Samsung apps : Optional) If your device is connected to Wi-Fi, applications will be downloaded from Google Play stores automatically**.
(**Google account is not needed to download application, but is needed to check the downloading status.)
Or if you device is connected to 3G/4G, just notification will be displayed on the notification bar, and downloading will be started when your device is connected to Wi-Fi. If you want to download the applications through 3G/4G, please tap and drag the notification and tap ”USE MOBILE DATA”. Please remembers as downloading via your mobile network may result in additional charge, download via a Wi-Fi network if possible.
