Samsung Cloud vs. Backup

JUMP TO SOLUTION

ATT disabled Samsung Cloud on my Note 7 but  I still have the option to backup my data (under settings) including phone, documents, music, apps, etc. 

 

What is the difference between Samsung and Samsung Backup?

 

I didn't see anything for pictures/gallery. Could this be the main difference? 

 

Anyway, if someone who has Cloud could let me know, that would be great. Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the Samsung Community. We're glad you're here.

 

The Samsung Cloud ( http://www.samsung.com/us/support/answer/ANS00060509/ ) has several things it can back up, restore, and sync. The full list is there, but it does include the gallery.

The Samsung account back up is a much smaller list. Type of data backed up: Calendar, Contacts, Internet, Memos.

 

By far the most complete version of a back up can be achieved by using Smart Switch. http://www.samsung.com/us/smart-switch/  When downloaded onto your computer you can use the program to back up files from your smart phone, including pictures.

Will Samsung Cloud be available on the S7 since the Note 7 is now dead?

T-MOBILE just pushed an update to S7 and with that I got Samsung cloud.
So this is a feature that carriers need to add.
