    I would like to transfer my data and apps to a new phone (from Samsung Galaxy S5 to A8). I know that I can use SmartSwitch. But I'm wondering about an appropriate order of steps during this process. Should I:
    1. Use SmartSwitch to transfer data, like messages and contacts, and apps to the new phone.
    2. Transfer SD card with other files (like music etc.) from the old phone to the new one.
    3. Transfer SIM card to the new phone.
    or maybe should the order of these steps be like 3, 1, 2? Thank you in advance for your help.

    You can begin to switch the phone with smart switch.

    Step 1. Connect two mobile phones

    Make a connection between your Samsung Galaxy S5 and Samsung A8 with USB connector. Then you need to set the old phone as the Sending device and Samsung A8 as the Receiving device.

    Step 2. Move the data from Samsung Galaxy S5 to Samsung A8

    After the connection, there will be some options displayed on the screen. Just select the files you want to transfer and then press the Send button to sync them from your Galaxy S5 to the new Samsung A8.
