Use the USB Connector to Connect Your Galaxy S7 to Your Previous Device
You can easily transfer content—such as music, photos, messages, and contacts—from your previous device using the provided USB Connector and Samsung Smart Switch.*
Screens and settings available may vary by wireless service provider and software version.
The USB Connector also lets you connect to a flash drive and move content between the two devices. You can also use it to connect a USB mouse or keyboard to your mobile device.
Compatibility and functions may vary depending on your wireless service provider, region, configuration, or device model. You may only use Smart Switch to reproduce non-copyrighted materials or materials you have the right to reproduce. Transferring Digital Right Management (DRM) protected media is not supported.
Transfer Content via Smart Switch
Connect your previous device to the microUSB end of a charging cable.
Connect the standard USB end of the cable to the USB Connector.
Connect the microUSB end of the USB Connector to your new device.
On the new device, touch Smart Switch.
If this pop-up does not open, or it opens on the old device rather than the new one, touch Apps > Settings > Backup and reset > Open Smart Switch.
