    Hi,
    I just got a replacement note 4 under warranty and want to transfer all of my apps and their settings/data to the new phone. I tried Samsung smart switch and Google tap&go transfer and both transfered the apps, but not the settings. I know you can do a complete copy with an iPhone, is this possible with Android?
    Thanks!

    What you are looking for is a new feature of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Helium may work, but I haven't had much luck with it.

    Sprint Galaxy Tab 4 on 5.1.1 update.
    Gives me hope for 6.0 Marshmallow.

    Hi,
    I just used Helium and restored just the all data to the apps that I wanted to and used the Google restore to bring back all the rest of the apps (without data). It took a while to figure out how to use Helium but it eventually worked. Thanks for everyone's help!
