It's always a good idea to have a backup of your phone's contents. That way, if anything happens to your Samsung, you can relax knowing your stuff's safe and ready to restore to the replacement phone.
Samsung Smart Switch lets you back up your Samsung Galaxy phone to your computer. Use it to swap from one phone to another, or to keep a backup of your phone "just in case".
Open the 'SmartSwitch' software and connect your phone to the computer with a USB cable.
You might have to press a button on your phone screen. Check your phone when prompted, and press Install.
When you see your phone, click Backup at the bottom of the program.
A progress bar will show you how things are going. Don't disconnect your phone while it's working.
When it's done, you'll see what information was copied, and what wasn't. Click OK to close the window.
