To be honest, Samsung S8 is better than Samsung S5. Firstly, Samsung S8 has a perfect and classy appearance. In my opinion, it's really very beautiful. Seconfly, Samsung S8 has a large number of functions and better accessories. For example, Samsung S8 Edge has a double cameras and fingerprint identification function. From my view, double cameras for taking photos and video chatting will become a wave of the future. Futher more, fingerprint identification function could protect my Samsung S8 Edge and ensure it secure.
However, the only thing that made me feel regretful is that I had to re-download App before. My last mobile phone has a lot of data which I wanted to retain it. Therefore, I want to find a good method which could transfer data from my last Samsung J5 to my new Samsung S8 Edge. My friend Vincent taught me a method and he said it could transfer data from Samsung J5 to Samsung S8 Edge. He recommended me a software called Samsung Data Transfer. Until then, I didn't know Wondershare MobileTrans before. After I successfully transferred data from my Samsung J5 to Samsung S8 Edge, I found that it's really useful. It only could transfer phone to phone, but also has other functions such as back up phone and restore from backups etc. If you want to transter data from Samsung to Samsung S8/S8 Edge, you can try my method.
With Samsung Data Tranfer, we can also tranfer data contacts, videos, photos, calendar, notes, apps, calendar, music, text messages from old Samsung Galaxy S2/S3/S4/S5/S6/S7, galaxy note 2/3/4/5/7, galaxy j1/j2/j3/j5/j7, galaxy a3/a5/a7/a8/a9 to Samsung Galaxy S8/S8 Edge.
