How does Samsung Smart Switch work?

With Samsung Smart Switch, you can easily transfer your contacts, files, and settings from your old smartphone or tablet to your new Samsung device. It doesn't matter which brand device you're switching from. With Samsung Smart Switch, you can easily switch in 2 ways: wireless or via a cable. Here we'll explain how you do that.

Wireless

  1. Connect both devices to WiFi.
  2. Download and open the Samsung Smart Switch on both your old and new device.
  3. Tap Get started on your old device and select Send data on your new device.
  4. Choose wireless on both devices. The devices will now connect.
  5. On your old device, select the data that you want to transfer and tap Transfer. The data is now copied to your new device so it also remains on your old device.

Via a cable

Note: Currently, Samsung doesn't always include a USB connector anymore. In that case, Samsung Smart Switch only works wirelessly.

  1. Download and open the Samsung Smart Switch on both your old and new device.
  2. Tap Get started on your old device and select Receive data on your new device.
  3. Select Cable on both devices.
  4. Connect the devices together with a cable and the USB connector included with your new Samsung device. The screen shows how you do this.
  5. On your old device, choose Transfer files.
  6. On your new smartphone, select which files you want to take with you from your old phone and tap Transfer. Smart Switch will now transfer your information to your new device.
