"Can anyone help me on how to transfer WhatsApp data between Samsungs? I use Samsung Galaxy S5 and want to switch to Samsung Galaxy S6 which I bought recently. I know I can download photos in it on my S5 and transfer photo from Samsung Galaxy S5 to S6 but how about the audios, videos and other chat logs? Can you please recommend a once-and-for-all solution for me to transfer app data?"
