Samsung Switch: handy or not?
Samsung’s eco system for the most people here on SamMobile is not that good. Lots of pre-loaded applications which aren’t that useful thanks to the Google Play store. This time we tested Samsung’s last application called Samsung switch. Thanks to Samsung switch you could easily share all documentation with other people thanks to NFC. Samsung Switch is a kind of back-up specially if you received a new Samsung device.
How does it works.
Let’s say we used a Note II and we want all our gallery’s photos on our new Galaxy S4.
- Get Samsung Switch from the play store.
- Install Samsung Switch on your Galaxy Note II and Galaxy S4.
- Now use S Beam to connect both devices.
- Select on your Galaxy Note II which files you want to share.
- Hit share and wait.
- After a couple of seconds / minutes depends on files is everything on your Galaxy S4.
Now that’s what we call a good ecosystem, something that works perfectly together.
It would be great to see if Samsung update this program to the Air. It would be handy to use for non NFC owners and if you aren’t home to get all files.
Of course Android users will say, we already have this thanks to Google who backs-up all your applications, photos and contacts in the cloud. But not everyone want this in case of privacy rules.
We have to say the eco system of Samsung is getting better. And we do think Samsung’s eco system is getting handy if you use the apps by Samsung in the way Samsung think of. Sadly, Samsung’s biggest problem with Android is the Google Play store. But this could be over if Samsung brought its own Tizen devices with their same eco system.
