I haven't seen any posts about this, but... Game data transfer problems.

I used the Smart Switch app to transfer from my P20 Pro to my S21. Everything looks like it worked, but the game data from my apps didn't get transferred. They all start like I'm starting for the first time. I've googled the issue, but buying 3rd party apps, connecting my phone to my pc, transferring to SDcard(which I can't use), creating APK files of all my games and uploading to some cloud service and downloading them all again, surely there must be an easier way when I can just connect the two phones by cable!?

games are rooted to your phone which means they are not transferable to a new phone

What!? So I'll have to keep my old phone forever just for the games? And why are there apps that claim to be able to transfer the data?

Yeah, but I'm talking games I've spent probably 1500 hours and probably $1000 in over the last 3 years. I can't remember this being in issue when I switched from my S5 to my P20 Pro.

depends on game, but paid for games on Google play store should be transferable as long as you're using the same Google account. Games that use cloud saves will automatically be the same as long as you're using the same credentials for that game.
