Many have pointed out that using Smart Switch to set up a phone causes it to have a bad battery life later on. If that's the case why is nobody reporting it back to Samsung so it gets fixed?

That's is not always the case as I have always used smartswitch with no detrimental effect to my battery

While you're asking that question, have you reported it?

Experiences differ , some prefer setting up their device afresh and using Backups in any case. imagine some have reported the Smart Switch issue  officially  but it may not be the most pressing concern.

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

The reason it is suggested is because some users but not all have this issue.

The issue resolvea around the apps individual users have on their devices and the temporary cached files that sit dormant on the old device that are copied over as part of the move from once device to another.

As there are millions of apps out there and Samsung cannot be expected to search users devices to see what temporary cached files may exist (imagine the complaints about privacy, gdpr etc - it would be relentless), then it falls to users to factory data reset and start again IF they have issues.

SmartSwitch could transfer some funny configuration on some apps, but this is the first time I hear about affecting battery life later on.

How does it affect the battery life?
