Back-up data on my Samsung device
With so many files on your phone or tablet, it is important to back up your data. That way, you won't have to worry if anything ever happens to your phone or tablet.
If you want to make sure that your data is secure, select one of the options to backup your device via PC / Mac, external USB / Samsung Account or Google Account that allows you to easily transfer contacts, photos, messages and other types of files.
Before you start backing up your files, make sure your PC meets the minimum requirements to use Smart Switch. To find out if your PC or Mac supports Smart Switch, visit the Smart Switch page, and select Requirements under Overview.
From your contacts to messages, your photos and videos to your music, your calendar events to your apps. Even the device settings. They're all there on your new Galaxy phone for you to pick up right where you left off.
If you are planning on backing up your data to a USB, ensure you have a OTG adapter handy.
Smart Switch app is pre-installed on most Samsung devices; it's normally used to transfer content between two phones, however if you do not have this downloaded to your device you can install it directly through the Google PlayStore.
Backup data from your previous device to Samsung Cloud and restore the data to your new device. You can also sync data saved in your device with Samsung Cloud and view data saved on the Samsung Cloud.
You must register and sign in to your Samsung account to use Samsung Cloud. With Samsung Cloud you get to store up to 15 GB worth of your photos, apps and data for free.
