    Samsung Galaxy S7. It prompted "restore 83 apps" and I selected yes, and it's been restoring for over an hour now. Is this normal? A little worried it's using data.


    Additionally, I plan to restore my phone via a backup to my computer that I did earlier today. Is there any point in waiting for Google to restore my apps if I'm just going to restore it from Smart Switch on my computer anyway?

    Thanks! Closed the google restore and just used smart switch. So much faster, no data use, and everything's saved! Thanks : )
