    This has always happened the past few phones that I've gotten, and I've never found a way to fix it. Every time I get a new phone or factory reset my phone, after I log into Google Play Store, it automatically tries to restore apps, but it restores the ones on my Nexus 7, and not the ones that were on my phone. I always end up cancelling the auto-restore, and manually installing all the apps I remember being installed on my phone.

    Is there any way to ignore the Nexus 7 backup and restore from my latest phone backup? BTW I'm on KitKat and not sure if this has been addressed in Lollipop.

    Thanks in advance.
