Samsung Smart Switch

I currently have an S5, with SOME of my music, photos and even some apps on an SD card (a necessity with only 16 G on the old phone), Anyone help with the best way to transfer all this to the new G9+ with Samsung Smart Switch without screwing it up or, even worse, losing some of it in the process? I understand it will transfer from the old phone SD card, but will it put all the info on the new phone itself, or should a new SD be inserted into the new phone and it will transfer there?

Probably best answer...

This is what I wound up doing....
Took SD card out of old phone and inserted into new phone (with the power off).
Turned on new phone....let it do its thing...used the Smart Switch to transfer from old phone to worked perfectly (with the music, pics, etc...staying on the card, where they were). The only problem I found was a few of the contact info was a bit screwed up, but easy to fix.
HOpe all works OK for you.
