    Hello there,

    For the texts, it can be a little tricky. Kies will backup your texts and contacts and everything, but won't transfer them (at least until the last version I used, which was a while ago) to a new device, it'll only let you restore the backup to the SAME phone it came from. For texts I used an app called EaseBackup, which basically creates a file (which you copy to your new phone) and restores SMS/MMS to that.

    For contacts, I suggest you keep all of them on your Google account, that way when you set up your account in the new phone, they'll automagically appear there, plus being available anywhere you have a web browser and even let you have up to a month's worth of 'history' to undo changes and restore a previous state in case you delete someone you didn't want or something like that. To transfer everything not already there, just go to your Contacts app, hit the menu button, and select MOVE DEVICE CONTACTS TO (Or if you have an Export to or Move To option, that should work as well, can't remember how it is on the S4). There just select your Google account and presto! When you set up your account in your new phone, your Contacts will be there.

    You can go into the galaxy app store and download smart switch to both phones and it should move your contacts and texts over to your new phone. Just download and follow the directions. It should work pretty well since they are both samsung galaxy phones.

    Sorry the app is called Smart Switch Mobile. It's an orange square with a white S.

    I use SMS Backup+ a free app from the Play Store. I backs up my texts to my gmail account and if you install it on your new phone it will also restore them.
