    -Smart Switch pretty much carries over everything now (in comparison to last time, where there were no widgets).
    -DeX homescreen got ported over (that's pretty cool).
    -Bluetooth devices carried over (super cool--wonder if Wi-Fi passwords will as well).
    -Phone is least slippery model since Samsung went to all glass construction--this is the first glass phone that doesn't feel like it's always about to fly out of your hand.
    -Curvature on screen is such that there's noticably more usable screen real estate (and easier to do touch screen inputs on edges of screen).
    -Sound from phone is noticeably improved / great and Dolby software seems to help in some situations.

    WiFi info passed over perfectly for me. I didn't have to do anything. I've always been leary of Smart Switch but I bought the 9 on impulse and used SS in the TMO store. Went home and WiFi immediately connected. Very sweet!

    Lol yeah while I was setting up my note9 I was looking everywhere for the paper I had my wifi password on and I gave up out of frustration. Went back to the note9 and saw it had transfered the password. I was like oh cool. Lol. Course I found the password right afterwards lol

    My preference is to use my Samsung Cloud Back Up instead of SmartSwitch.

    My photos are in my Dropbox Account and Contacts in gmail.

    Everything moved to my Note 9 this way too.

    The speaker is 100% better than my s8 especially when taking a call.

    Voices are now much clearer on phone calls too.

    Does Cloud Backup preserve the layout of your homescreen?
