Google Services do excellent work in storing and backing up data in the cloud, but it
seems quite difficult backing up local data such as game data, apps data and many more.
Samsung has introduced a new technology which can handle this job pretty good.
Samsung Smart switch is an application software that allows users to seamlessly transfer data and content like contacts, photos, music, notes, etc from One Galaxy device to another, configure email syncing with Microsoft Outlook, backup and restore data and many more. This app makes moving between smartphones a piece of a cake.
Except Samsung Galaxy devices, there are bunch of other android phones which
support Smart Switch. You can check it out here:
