    The app "apps backup and restore" will help bring over the apps.

    First of all, assuming you have your Google account syncing as it should be, switching to a new device is pretty easy. Your apps, contacts, calendar, and bookmarks should all automatically sync with your new phone when you activate it.

    Regarding the other things you list...

    When it comes to apps, the restore will only restore the apps themselves, not the data. There are apps that you can use to backup this data as well, though may require root to be fully functional.

    system settings -- these are not very easy to backup and restore because different phones from different manufacturers and different android versions will have different settings in place. Even if you could, I wouldn't recommend restore system settings from one device to another.

    call logs and sms/mms -- there are apps out there for backing this stuff up to. A popular one is My Backup.

    Easile done downloading Samsung SmartSwitch on both phones (Look for it on Playstore, if can't find it, go to the Samsung Apps) once installed it can transfer everything you need using NFC between both. I haven't done it between 3 and 4, but I did it for my old S2 to my daughter's new S3, even when the S2 didn't have the NFC chip, I had installed on it, Shostock 3, and it had it on the menu, so I gave it a try, and for my surprise it worked perfectly.

    So, between 3 and 4 that both have NFC, shold be even easier.

    One thing regarding the app sync with your Google account, you have to have the options to backup and restore enabled on both devices for it to work properly.
