    So I had to reset my phone and it was asking if I wanted to sign in with my Samsung acct. I know that they have a find my phone option and other things that you can do with Samsung, but I don't really hear many people using these options though like Iphone where everyone seems to use Find my Iphone. Do you guys use Samsung acct options? If so, which ones should I use? I don't want a lot of bloatware, but I think the find my phone option and themes are cool.

    Hi , I use Samsung sign in not just for lost phone
    1. Sync up with Samsung pass for stored password
    2. Back up my device settings,for sms, gallery,calls and few more
    3.keeps all Samsung apps up to date
    4. If you buy themes it's all under Samsung account
    If Im missing other things I'm sure others will chime in

    I was just wondering because I didn't want to utilize it and be stuck with a bunch of bloatware.

    What about battery life? Which is better for a backup though, Samsung or Google? I might be getting them both confused, but can't you do the same things with Google as well?

    Google can do some but it's limited, Samsung covers more

    I do as Mustang stated.
    I use both Samsung and Google backup services. I feel like there is no such thing as to much backup.

    S Health requires a Samsung account to sync, same with some other Samsung apps. I don't use it for a lot but I always log into it when I set my phone up.

    How did you add Samsung backup
    Mine always reverts to Google.
