Back up and restore data on your Galaxy phone or tablet
With so many important files on your phone or tablet, it is imperative to back up your data. That way, you won't have to worry if anything ever happens to your phone or tablet. Plus, once the data is backed up, restoring the data to any other device will be incredibly easy and hassle free.
Note: Available screens and settings may vary by wireless service provider, software version, and phone model.
Back up and restore using Samsung Cloud
Back up and restore using Google
Google is another great option to back up and restore your data.
Open Settings, and then tap Accounts and backup. Tap Backup and restore, and then tap Back up my data under Google account. Tap the switch to activate the feature. If prompted, sign in using your Google account credentials. Your data will be automatically backed up to your Google Drive.
You can also back up manually by tapping Google Account, and then tapping Back up now.
To restore your data, tap the switch next to Automatic restore under Google account.
Back up data with a microSD card
If you'd rather use a method that doesn't require the internet, you can try using a microSD card. Simply insert one into your phone or tablet and then move over your desired files to the card, so they'll be safe and sound.
