With this application, it is conceivable to synchronize your data with your PC. Additionally the main use of this application is you may update your device software version with your own.

Many people trends to use Kies for backup, data transfer and firmware updates, however, as iTunes, Samsung Kies is only accessible for Samsung Smartphones and tablets, which mean it, will not work with other brand of Smartphones and tablets like LG, HTC, and Motorola.

Samsung Kies Is Not A Ideal Tool for Managing Samsung Phones

In the past years, there were hundreds of Samsung users  report the situation that the Samsung kies didn't solve their problem,  I summarized the following issues that we collected from the users.

  • My Samsung S5 often fails to be recognized by the Kies when it is plugged into the USB port.
  • Kies often drop or duplicat my contacts, it won't recognize when a name has been updated.
  • The sync process does not complete, and sometime the original contacts disappear magically.
  • When you try to back your phone, Kies will suck at "device's file list is being prepared" no matter how long you wait.
  • More ... serach Kies review sites in Google, you will find how bad it is!
