    I broke down and bought a blue note 7 at Verizon yesterday. My note 5 is set up just the way I like it; many apps and settings customized. I'm trying to minimize the pain and time to set up my new phone. Do you have any recommendations?

    With my first Android phone I set up a Google account and every successive phone has restored the setup and data (excepting texts) from the previous phone with no hassle. When it finished updating it looked and worked just like my previous phone. Samsung has something similar if you have a Samsung account.

    Also, some good reading:

    Samsung smart switch app. Use the adapter that came in the box and connect the 2 phones with the charging cord and with Samsung smart switch app it will only take a few mins.. Much faster than doing it wireless.
