    I often find I need to do a factory reset after installing a new OS. Would you recommend Samsung Cloud Backup or Google Backup? Why?

    If the answer is Samsung will my apps be connected to app store or show they were installed by installer?

    I used an app last time and I noticed the apps I restored through apk were not connected to Playstore so could not be updated.

    Thats weird. On my Pixel3xl, I only use google, and it restores the home screen also. I noticed on my note, it does not. I have to think on that....

    ...Samsung SmartSwitch "Backup/Restore" still works and that does Apks! I use all three and between them, I'm usually looking like before the update except for anything occasionally incompatible!
