    Perhaps I am missing something but where do I find the restore from google cloud backup to my new Galaxy S7? I tried the cable trick but that failed multiple times. I backed it up from my Nexus 5 to Google and want to restore it to my new phone.

    Go to the Google Settings app.
    Scroll down to "Set up nearby device" and tap.
    Make sure both units are connected to Wi-Fi (or Bluetooth)

    Thanks I gave it a try but it wouldn't connect at all.

    Samsung Smart Switch isn't working either. I'll just do it manually.

    Have you enabled Developer Options & checked off USB De-bugging?
    Also,once that's done,look for a pop-up to ask permission for your PC to "see" your phone...............

    I just signed into my g-mail account, and synced, and contacts, pics and calendar all came onto new phone from my Google account. I had to download apps manually.

    I transferred all my apps with the smartswitch over a cable using the OTG for security, worked nicely.
