Currently have a Samsung GS3 on Android 4.1.2. The device is rooted and using CWM Recovery. I use Titanium Backup and have all my apps and data backed up. I am considering upgrading to Samsung GS5 and would like to know what I should do so that I can restore my apps and data on the new device.
 
Easy fix.

1. Upload all of your apps and pictures to Google+, Drive, etc...



2. Make backups of your device with Kies 3.0,
Then you can pull in just the apps and data from the old backup file to the S5
* Kies | SUPPORT | SAMSUNG


3. Install Switcher and retain your old device until AFTER you have the new S5 in your hands, Switcher will move all of your old stuff over for you.
