    I am going to swap my Galaxy Note 7 for a new non exploding one. I want to back up my apps and data because I have everything set up the way I want. What is the easiest way to do it? I tried Helium but it just didn't work. It says "backing up data" but just sits there and does nothing. I don't want to go through rooting my phone. Any help, tips?

    Also in the phone settings there is "Google Account" "Back up my data" and it's on. It's supposed to back up to my google account, but how do I know it exists? I don't see anything on Google Drive or anywhere else in my Google account.

    just use the built in Samsung cloud backup, everything will be the same on any new Samsung phone you buy including the home screen icons lay out and apps
