Does anyone know if you can transfer data from a phone s6 that has a broken screen to a A8 using Smart switch app via the cable method

The difficulty you may encounter is the smartswitch app needs to be launched on both and when one connects to another a pop up box shows asking for permissions.

The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.

Try using Side Sync and see if you can acces your phone without permission. If so you can copy the files to your PC manually and insert them in the A8.

Side Sync sometimes doesnt need confirmation to mirror the screen. Smart Switch always asks for permission so without a screen this is not available with SmartSwitch.
