We have to hand it to Samsung. They not only think of everything, they make it happen. That Samsung Galaxy S4 has everything and the kitchen sink! Now, they’ve made switching to that device much easier.
Samsung has created an app designed to help you move all your info to the new Galaxy S4 by simply using NFC. If you have another Galaxy S device, simply load the app on both phones, tap them together, and everything will be moved over; contacts, calendar events, messages… everything.
Now, you might be thinking “Don’t Google services do that by default?” You’d be right, too. If you use native Google services like the calander, or have your contacts saved in GMail… you’re fine. However, this is really meant for those hardcore Samsung fans who like to utilize the variant Samsung offers, as well as those features like S Health that aren’t available anywhere else.
It’s sly brilliance from Samsung, who is trying to corral their current users into an upgrade, and making it dead simple to do so. It also serves to tie them into the Samsung ecosystem, and further distances itself from Android. We can’t say it’s a surprising move from Samsung, but it may be necessary for those users who choose Samsung services over Google’s.
