    You can transfer contacts ,pictures, but dont do settings , it's too old to transfer your sertings, home screen stuff like that .

    If you made back up in smart switch just check the boxes for what I mentioned above same with if you had backed up to Samsung cloud in accounts>settings restore just check the ones I mentioned

    You are lucky. I restored from a backup between a Pixel 2xp and a 4XL and I had issues with my new hardware. I had to factory reset and set up as a new phone to get it to work.

    If you have any issues with greyed out menus or not available, you'll have to factory reset .
