It is very confusing for me to have both a Samsung and Google accounts. Would it be easier to have created completely different accounts? This is my first time using a Samsung Phone.

@MadeaElla For the first time user it can be a little confusing. 

  • The Google account gives you access to the play store, an email account (@gmail.com), etc.
  • The Samsung account can be used to back up/restore items from/to your device. It is also used to register your device(s) for warranty, etc. It provides access to many things that are Samsung specific. 

The login user name could be the same for both since you need to use an email for the Samsung account. 

For best experience on your Samsung, you need both accounts.
