JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – 15 October 2021 – Some of South Africa’s most dynamic influencers have seamlessly demonstrated how simple and ultimately rewarding it can be to switch to the Samsung Galaxy of game-changing devices. Melinda Bam, Grant Hinds, Dr Sivuyile Madikana and Kiara Kittner have not only discovered how easy it is to #SwitchToGalaxy but have also joined the foldable smartphone revolution. Moving to a ground-breaking device such as the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G or Galaxy Z Flip3 5G Galaxy from another device or OS isn’t difficult with Smart Switch. The app works with many devices, making the upgrade to Galaxy a seamless process for everyone. You can now slip into a brand new Galaxy and bring what you’ve collected along the way. Keep all your photos, calendar dates, alarms and even call history. The stars took to Instagram to showcase the effortless steps.


Melinda Bam enthusiastically exclaimed that flipping from an old device to a new one couldn’t be easier. She joked that she would no longer have to wait till someone with tech fingers or a degree in IT could do it. She added that the new Galaxy Z Flip3 5G gave her plenty of reasons to switch, from being a stylish accessory that actually fits into any clutch, to the variety of creative capturing modes to being any content creators dream.


Dr. Sivuyile Madikana was excited to make the switch from Galaxy Z Fold2 to the Galaxy Z Fold3 5G, describing it as the thinnest and most pocketable Galaxy Fold yet and the toughest, thanks to its Amor Aluminium frame. He was impressed that he could carry all his data effortlessly and quickly thanks to Galaxy SmartSwitch.


Grant Hinds showed that you don’t need a tech guru to switch to a foldable future. He was also eager to try out a host of features that are only possible on a foldable device and experience ‘real’ multitasking made possible because of the bigger screen size and the ability to run up to 3 apps at the same time. Grant also reminded his followers about the Galaxy Z Series pre-order offer* which runs until 20 October 2021, where you receive the amazing Galaxy Buds2, a must-have SmartTag and 12 months of Samsung Care+ Service Plan – all worth R5200 – for free with your purchase.


Kiara Kittner glowed as she introduced the stylish Galaxy Z Flip3 5G which she described as perfect for her smaller handbags too.  She said that switching “to this beauty from my old device was super easy” with the SmartSwitch app and described the process as fast – and an absolute pleasure.

Galaxy SmartSwitch is clearly a simple and secure way to move your content to Galaxy. When making the switch to Galaxy, you don’t have to say goodbye to your old stuff. The content you were using before – your photos, settings and call history – get to stay with you on your new Galaxy. The intuitive Smart Switch app makes ditching your older device a snap. Just a few little clicks move your pics, contacts and favourite apps right to your new Galaxy. You can transfer, back up or restore whatever way fits you best. It’s simple to make a device-to-device connection wirelessly or with the USB-OTG adapter provided in-box, or use a backup file from external storage.
