    I factory-restored my Galaxy S5 and during setup, I logged into my Google account and connected to Wi-Fi.

    When I got to the home screen, I left my phone for two hours but when I came back, non of my apps were installed.

    Why not?

    I had them set to back up with Google in Settings for months before I factory-restored earlier today.

    Seems I can't put my trust in Google's "Back up my data".

    Go into setting -> backup & reset -> you should see a check box with automatically restore apps .

    If you stop it by accident, it doesn't start back.

    That just stores app data on Google's servers.
