    If you had done:
    Settings > Backup & restore > Backup my data
    ...then you can do:
    Settings > Backup & restore > Automatic restore
    ...and your apps will reinstall, WiFi settings and some other stuff is restored.

    Go to:
    Settings > Accounts > Google > select account
    ...and enabled sync for contacts, calendar, email etc and they will sync back to the phone.

    Photos, music, documents etc must be restored manually or been backed up with an app such ad Helium or MyBackup. Same for SMS/MMS, they are not saved to your Google account.

    Negative, I had/hav S6 and Back Up was set, check in the box Auto Restore, I could go into my account and view all 300+ usernames and passwords, e-mail was backing up, app data, etc. etc. NOT ONE APP OR ONE PASSWORD GOT RESTORED !!!
    NOT EVEN WHEN INSTALLING EACH APP INDIVIDUALLY !!! All contacts did, but don't rely on GOOGLE or ANDROID for **** !!!

    GET A 3RD PARTY APP, OR YOU WILL REGRET IT !!!

    GOOGLE IS A **** SCAMMING ENTITY !!!

    Welcome to AC.

    Crashdamage is a deceased and much-missed member, so I doubt you will get a reply from him. Nevertheless, I think his advice was sound.
    There are of course other ways of doing it, as you say.
