Hey all

I just bought a Samsung S8 from a friend and will ditch the S5 I have.
I am a total novice at using smart phones.
My questions :-

1) How do I delete everything from his phone (the S8)?
And :-
2) How do I transfer *everything* from my S5 to the S8?

Thanks for your suggestions/guidance.

First, be sure your friend has signed out of his/her Google accounts. Work with them to unlock the phone with any PIN/security they had on it and have them sign out of their Google and Samsung accounts to be sure it won't be locked to them. Then do a reset from within Settings. http://www.androidcentral.com/factory-reset-protection-what-you-need-know
