Part 1: How to Transfer Data from Samsung to Samsung without Smart Switch

Shortly after the development of smartphones, Samsung introduced the Smart Switch, which supports the transfer of files from other devices (including Samsung) to Samsung, but can not achieve reverse operation.

There is no provision to preview data first and selectively transfer them to other devices. Apart from that, if the sender of the file is not a Samsung mobile phone, there may be some compatibility problems.
