    I did a Factory reset and then proceeded to set phone up again. the screen just says restoring ., after saying yes to restore apps from Google Account.
    is over 12 hours too long? Shall I switch the phone off and start again?
    Phone is a Samsung Galaxy S7

    That's what I'd do.

    It depends on the number of apps, contacts, music files, etc., you had backed up. 12 hours seems like a bit long, but some people keep their whole lives n their phones. (My restore, when I got my new phone, definitely took a few hours, maybe more than a few, but I don't pay attention to things like that - it's a background operation. I just used the phone as normal while it was restoring.

    Backups will "remember" where they were when they're restoring, so if you switch the phone off for a while, then turn it on, if the restore isn't finished it will just pick up where it left off.
