Default best way to go from a Note 2 to a S4

Hi All,

I have a Note 2 now and I am getting an S4 tomorrow (mainly for smaller size since I run a lot). I am a pro at switching phones but I usually just start over.

This time I want to see if I can just carry over what I have on my Note 2. How do you best recommend that I do that?

I have MyBackup Pro. Do I just backup using that and then when I get my device I install that first and the restore a backup? How anyone had issues with that?

I tried to search on the forums but something is up with Search.

Thanks for your help!

I did the same change last week. I also used my backup pro. I found that as soon as I signed my google account name, it restored my apps from the play store automatically. I used the my backup restore feature to verify they were all there. It worked perfect.

The hard part is customizing those apps all over again.
