My Suggestions:

The two methods above are both simple and efficient for transferring data between two different Samsung devices. You can choose either of them to help you. But Mobile Transfer in method 1 can support other more Android devices like HTC, LG, Sony, Huawei, Google Nexus, etc. while the Smart Switch in method 2 can only work on Samsung devices and it doesn't support other Android devices yet.
