    It's not completely useless, but i have two complaints: 1)you can't send or receive photos, videos etc. through WhatsApp. It's possible to chat there only. Would be a nice touch if they fix it in the future. 2) There's no settings for notifications whatsoever. You just receive everything and it can get a bit frustrating. And also it would be nice if there was a opportunity tu use Auto Hotspot feature. P.S. pc (windows 10) user

  2. j spaulding-avatar

    download **Edit: USB Now supported. Very functional on USB or wifi. PLEASE IMPROVE: Would like to multitask while making calls. Flow "pauses" screen mirror while on calls. This makes no sense. IMPROVE: Click&Drag or clipboard sharing. Sharing via "history/ message" cumbersome.** Old SideSync user, initial review after switching to Flow: Useless After 6 Sammys in the family, I'm about done because of this and other issues. Just need to find a non-proprietary version of SideSync.

  3. Mike Mclaughlin-avatar

    Mike Mclaughlin


    windows SIDESYNC is much better. I used this initially but gave up. I don't have time to keep updating and hoping it gets better. Let me know when you get it fixed and I will try again. To bad you took away my SideSync before you figured this out.

  4. Gary Rodriguez-avatar

    app Pretty bad experience. I have a Samsung phone and laptop that I like very much. I cant say the same for this app. Is not user friendly at all. I needs a lot of work to be done to make it feel seamless as samsung advertise. Great idea, just not seamless nor userfriendly.

  5. _death RTCW-avatar

    alternative After updates it's get better and better. Now support turning off hardware acceleration in app on PC, so I can use G-sync in windowed mode. Also why is the app on PC lagging with fps (using USB connection)? Its fluid on smartphone.

  6. Light Woven-avatar

    mac I have a Samsung S8 with no option to download sidesync. This is the most horrendous bit of software. After 20 years in IT this programme makes my blood boil. Give me the option for my older phone to use the better software!!!

  7. Andreas-avatar

    windows 7 It would be very helpful to have a "how to use" tutorial integrated in the app/help section. Maybe there is an official one, but I have not found it yet? Also, I cannot find how to set sound on the mobile phone only. Currently music is being played on the PC while conntected. Also, there sometimes is a bug after completion of a phone call. The phone screen returns black while on the PC screen Samsung Flow is still blocked because of the call.

  8. Mikael Work-avatar

    apk 1. Why dont you use the same orange DeX logo as for the Desktop, or did I got the wrong app? 2. Sometimes it cannot find it via usb, other times I get to confirm on the phone with start, then it closes down on the desktop. 2 times I got as far as could see phone screen/files but transfer did not work. 3. Why dont you again make it possible to just transfer via explorer files, so much easier and worked before. Yes I did enable transfer files and all the other games as to reset cache etc.

  9. Barbie L-avatar

    windows 10 download Only works sometimes and CONSTANTLY loses its connection to my laptop / tablet. Very frustrating because I'm a power user who runs a business.

  10. Wes Suhler-avatar

    funktioniert nicht Wow. Just been using this for a couple of minutes and I'm already dumbfounded. What was wrong w/ sidesync? I could turn the screen off to save battery, or not. I could rotate the screen if I felt like. I could connect to PC w/ USB to improve responsiveness. And why do we have to get it from the MS store now? I'm really close to peacing out on Samsung altogether. That's just from less than 10 minutes perusing the "features". Or lack thereof, more rather.

  11. Gilad Berezetsky-avatar

    Gilad Berezetsky


    Takes way too much time to connect. It says "Not connected with your phone" and "Disconnected" in red, also sometimes asks me to verify without an option to verify on the PC and in the app it just stays on "Disconnected" status. I find myself constantly closing and re-opening both like 50 times. "Simple Unlock" does not work at all. Would like to have the option to press Enter on PC to send the message and to Shift+Enter to get another line. Heared about Night mode?

  12. Duna-avatar

    The app is handy, transfer large files without limitations. I'm using for photo, video, text transfer. Works great, decent speed, downloads right on the phone, in a separate folder. However, unfortunately the other features does not really works flawless, replying to messages, and receiving notifications, so I do not use for that at all. Samsung, please consider buying pushbullet, and make it free. Android users deserves a usable air drop alternative. - edit Thank you for the TIP(samsung), now autoconnects like a champ, + two start :)

  13. BicBoi Spyder-avatar

    Samsung Flow is overall worse than Side Sync. It's constantly on and showing up on my notification bar with no way to hide it besides forcing a shutdown of the app. It also turns on Bluetooth despite only using a Wi-Fi connection which is incredibly annoying. The "Phone screen on/off" button also don't work correctly; it only dims/brightens the screen instead of turning it off/on. Overall, just very inconvenient, but not terrible.

  14. Rob D-avatar

    Never had a good launch since the first. I get the idea but network switching and bluetooth, wifi, requiring phone visibility, just fails for me. I've had my note 9, 5 feet away and 15 feet through walls. It connected once to each but reconnecting hasn't worked. The app is running on both, the indicator is in the top banner. Xxxx 3/28 won't keep a connection on or return to a connection. I have to REMAIN connected. If I leave the connection I have to reset, then approve remote access.

  15. Arnav Singhal-avatar

    I love this application. It works as intended. File sharing process is slow but it's fine. My biggest problem is the connection process. I switched on simple lock feature but still it fails to reconnects automatically when I switch on windows. I don't know if it's my windows fault or your application because I think windows is not taking Samsung flow into startup apps. If it's the applications fault then please consider adding an option to "Add Samsung flow in startup apps in windows".

  16. Hahn Lan-avatar

    Bad experiences over and over again After not letting me send and receive anything else than texts from another device, I reinstalled the app. The problem was gone. Now, after about 2 weeks, the same problem. Really sucks!! It's the same issue over and over again

  17. Fanie Reynolds-avatar

    Really bad experience on Note8. Battled to download the app on PC. Connection via bluetooth erratic. When already downloading it starts a new pairing. Then stops download and you have to prompt for every photo to be reconsidered. I really expect better fro Samsung!

  18. Ethan Camingao-avatar

    I think there's a bug. For my Samsung A50, when I try to use smart view from my PC, it triggers this warning. And when I try to press "Start Now", there is no response. However the cancel button works just fine. Please fix.

  19. Pi Sahasra-avatar

    Why did you replace such a good 5 star super software sidesync with this piece of sheet app? Im a streamer that relies on mirroring my phone games with audio to my streaming platform but when im using the app, the text keyboard will never pop up, it lags till even a turtle would laugh, it has a gazillion bugs and just fails to deliver in EVERY FRONT! This is an embarassment samsung. Maybe you are washed up, time for Huawei to take over

  20. Mark Dee-avatar

    Absolutely terrible file transfer feature that is so unreliable. Trying to pull my entire Samsung cloud storage (200gb, all photos/video) have to move 500 files at a time (ugh). Doesn't take long for it to pop up saying (unable to send). Complete cluster****. Looks neat & simple to setup.....sadly not worth your time.

  21. Jerry Noel-avatar

    So easy to use and very convenient when you don't want to plug your phone in to send and receive files.

  22. Angela Frey-avatar

    This would have gotten 5 stars but with the new update I opted for the app to only know my location while in use... It wouldn't work... Untill I allowed it to have access at all times. Why give me the darn option than?? What a shame. To be strong armed in giving permissions if I want the use of an app that came with my phone!!

  23. Abrar Faiyad-avatar

    The reason why I stick to Samsung needs some performance improvements. But all in all good app. Update- don't know what the last update did ! But cant get file transfer to work any longer ! This is really frustrating as I was really depended on the app !

  24. Seth Rutman-avatar

    The only purpose was to connect a tablet to a PC, but the app specifically does not support connecting a tablet to a PC. Not sure what the point is. And why does it require location permissions?

    This is a very important app in my life but please increase the resolution of the smart view cast.

  26. ali dawar-avatar

    Good enough but need improvements especially keyboard and mouse sharing like it was possible on sidesync

  27. Bryan Jameson-avatar

    Yes, even after reading 42 reviews, all extremely bad reviews, I downloaded this app. Everything I tried worked, ok. Except playing videos (prime, flix, ect.) Which is really the only reason I tried it. It is did ok with pics(jpg & gif), files(well one anyway), docs. **But I can do all that using Google drive or just by using Bluetooth share and no internet connection needed. And a hell of a lot easier then this app. So this app is a waist of time. Especially reading 42 reviews. Uninstalling !

  28. Kevin Muliawarman-avatar

    Kevin Muliawarman


    Wow... this is a simple question and I don't know why it is not possible.... Why do you limit Samsung flow to smartphone only? I have Galaxy Tab A p205, and I really don't understan why I can't mirror my tablet on my PC... I mean... I have lots of notes there and I'll be glad to see it in my PC

    I LOVED this app before update. Now not only doesn't flow work, but android auto quit working too!!!! HELP

  30. Jonas Souza-avatar

    Very good, I wish it was easier to set up, I can't use with the cable, Just over WiFi. But I like it same way

  31. Hamza Ahmed-avatar

    Its so convenient & fast for file sharing & accessing phone wirelessly. Good job!👏🏻

  32. Adam Rochefort-avatar

    I tried using this app mostly to share files between my pc and my note 9. It takes repeated attempts to maybe get one file through. I haven't had time to check, but it might not be the great for sharing larger files.

  33. Paul BH-avatar

    Very impressed, Note 8 & newish PC. I usually connect over USB. NO connection issues. No delay using device. As someone who has hated your software in the past, this is a real step up.

  34. Vaditto Luthfan-avatar

    Vaditto Luthfan


    It should provide: - Black screen mirror view - File manager UI, not only for sending or receiving files - Phone call

  35. Varaloba One-avatar

    Quite poor, nothing worked, tried bluetooth, USB, still nothing! Used side sync in the past which actually worked reasonably well, but Samsung Flow was useless! Galaxy S9+, Android 10, and Windows 10, latest version.

  36. Patricia N.-avatar

    It doesnt work. At all. It disconnects as soon as it pairs for no discernable reason. It can't connect my phone to my tablet or my PC.

  37. Costner Realty Group-avatar

    Costner Realty Group


    No option to use both: actual phone and mirrored image on the screen. Have to turn on manually EVERY time the app connection instead wireless discovery. Very inconvenient and dissapointed . Samsung could do much better or restore Slide Sync

  38. Sharanga Jayatilake-avatar

    Sharanga Jayatilake


    It is not connecting with my Samsung S8. I was trying to connect with my laptop windows 10 and samsung firmware is up to date. And when I opened the APP from phone it just show start the Samsung flow setup and app freeze.

  39. william kasote-avatar

    It's great app especially locking you laptop, and receiving notifications when you're not using it or when it not next to you

  40. Tony George-avatar

    Increase memory capacity for texts and pics and make the app more easily ready and quicker to use when necessary.

    It's a useful app. But I often send my messages from my Samsung Flow application in my laptop. But it doesn't sent in my phone. Please fix it Samsung. Thank You.

  42. Kent Chiang-avatar

    Miss the old Samsung Flow Beta which has the feature to share content between devices. Such as sent the current YouTube video onto Tablet.

  49. Tim Brim-avatar

    Very buggy and unstable. Mouse fails most of the time. Sidesync was way better

  50. Rhonda Kemp-avatar

    tried to download on my computer to sync my phone and photos side sync was a lot easier. hate this app. Keep it simple stupid.

  51. James Ball-avatar

    Awful - desktop app just says "sidesync starting...." and the phone just says open it on your desktop.

  52. R Cobble-avatar

    Says to connect to tablet. Google play says not compatible. Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 32gig wifi.

    Overall a downgrade in functionality reliability, and Aesthetics from SideSync. I cannot begin to comprehend why this awful product was launched to replace its predecessor.

    When it works it's fast and convenient. Unfortunately, more often than not it doesn't. If that happens you can forget about it because no amount of scanning, adding or removing manages to reconnect. If the stars align, it's a great app. It happens so seldom, though, and is such a hassle when it doesn't, that I usually go straight to other apps rather than risk it.

    If you turn the navigation bar off and use full screen gestures, you CANNOT use Samsung flow on a PC and use the mouse to navigate on the phone. Turn the full screen gestures off and then you CAN use the mouse to navigate the phones screen. It is an annoying thing to have to switch between the two. Samsung can you fix this please.

    Just dosent work. Have a Note 10+. Constantly says wifi is unstable. Yet connects perfect with screen mirroring through link to windows / your phone. Wont transfer files. Connects then random disconnects. Even though both on the same network gives error as they are not. So much potential yet for me its useless. Such a shame. Bring back sidesync. It worked

  75. Asif A. Ali-avatar

    Love this app. You can literally install, pair your phone, and then stay on your desktop without having to run like a headless, looking for your phone. 😊 From securely signing onto your pc with just a swipe to fully managing, exchanging files between the devices, and controlling your device. As someone who is into photography and spreading the work load between the galaxy note 5 and desktop pcs... This is a perfect and secured solution for all my needs with seamless connection. 5 out of 5.

  76. cheng jerry-avatar

    the app allows u to transfer files between devices but I can't update smart view on my tab s6 and it's annoying as on my tablet it showed smart view at the latest version but it's a few version ahead on my phone s10. both devices showed they are at the latest version of smart view. thus I can't,mirror my phone onto my tablet. smh. kms.

    Horrible software with a boat load of connectivity issues. Why choose this wireless only glitchy software over SideSync? SideSync didnt have these connectivity issues since it also offered USB connectivity. Why did you get rid of arguably the best feature? Bring it back or fix this terrible software.

  78. Moses Añora-avatar

    But for now, both Tab and Cellphone can't send applications to each other, right? Got my point?

  79. Kate X-avatar

    Doesn't work. Ever. Keeps telling me I don't have permission to view Samsung Flow folder, transfer failed. I miss SideSync more every day. *edit 2/2020** Works occasionally, but now you want my location all the time just to use the app? Yeah right. Deleting.

  80. William D Sanchez-avatar

    This program is trash and barely works at all. Awful UI, can only transfer one file at a time, and a single photo from a phone camera takes nearly a half hour to transfer across a 5G connection, if it even completes the transfer without getting an error message. Don't waste your time.

    What a load of Cow Dung! I do not need it. Ido not want it. Let me uninstall it to retrieve storage space!!!

  82. Sina Aghajani-avatar

    I use smart view to play mobile games on my computer big screen, but it has a approx 1s delay. So it's useless if you want to play games, but for watching video and listening to music, it's OK!

  83. Shane Smith-avatar

    At times it get a little behind on screen time

  84. Amr A-avatar

    "Bug fixes and updates to some features", very vague update message. Edit (reply) When a developer updates features, a list of these feature updates would prove helpful to the user. Just saying updated features is vague and wouldn't encourage me enough to use flow again. On another note, a great feature that would make me do so is Continuity. If my phone rings I can answer the call on my laptop then I'll go back to flow again and give it 5 stars. (Careful MS is close)

  85. Mark Parker-avatar

    terrible pile of junk. disconnects continuously, refuses to connect, pretends its because the pc hardware "wasnt specifically designed for wireless projection" when screencast works fine even on old devices. Dont waste your time like this did mine.

  86. Guy Incognito-avatar

    "Check your Wi-Fi connection. Your Wi-Fi connection is unstable. To start Smart View, check your Wi-Fi connection." Nope. Nothing's wrong with it. Restarted everything. Reinstalled everything. Your software sucks, and I can't be the first person to have an issue with it. Have you come up with a patch yet or should I just uninstall? Worked beautifully last night and was seriously looking forward to testing it out this morning but have come up with this issue...and it's pretty fatal. Would be happy to change my review if there's a patch, but I do have the latest versions on the computer and phone, so...

  87. Loek van der Linden-avatar

    Loek van der Linden


    A pile of terribleness. Nothing works properly, screen mirroring is much slower, the sound now comes with ticks, the software continually asks to "allow unknown to connect with your phone", and if you press accept, it disconnects and you have to re-verify, you cannot switch off the screen completely, software on the pc is limited too. Seriously, the writers of this software should hang their heads in shame. Sidesync wasn't that good, but at least it worked, this just doesnt. On a Galaxy S8.

    I would not call this flow it's only good for responding to text messages. And even then you have no access to older messages or have the ability to start a new message (galaxy tab a and galaxy s10 plus) you cant take calls, I mean the list goes on and on it's another half baked samsung product. Maybe its because of the Samsung oven?! Lol

    Thank you Samsung. This is the best thing allowing continuity between multiple devices. I hope this gets improved more and more for ease of use and integeration with other Samsung devices.

    The service did a 180 degrees and is much better now, first of all it let's you use it on pc and phone without forcing you to use a password on either, second screen mirroring is in and it's flawless, file sharing is smooth too, good interface. Originally the app launched half baked and not only that when it did launch the support for another app with more features ended by ms for new phones so all had to use this (reason for the low score). Now it's pretty perfect, too bad it was rushed out.

    Can't use hotspot while using smart view. Why? You could with side sync. I use my hotspot at home.. Guess I'm installing side sync from apk websites.. Solution use usb? Sorry my laptop doesn't have a usb c plug. Side sync was definitely the better app. Yes I'm aware of what cable to use. But does note 10 come with a USB c to a? No. Thanks

    This app is almost awesome. I really miss only few things. 1. Auto-reconnect a phone and a laptop. Need to push "Verify identity" button and confirm on the phone so far. 2. It'll be good to be able to see and send pictures via messengers on a Windows laptop, e.g. Viber, through the connected phone. 3. Keep a clipboard setting on disconnection. For now it needs to enable sharing when devices get reconnected.

    It's amazing when it works. The most of time, it doesn't connect to my phone via WiFi. I have to wait mintues to see it connect success or fail. No issue when connect via Bluetooth.

    🛇Major Problem in this App is Screen Cast to PC. ✔When screen Cast to PC, Mobile Display is always On. It's so painful for user experience.

    The app was working pretty nicely untill the latest update which causes the app to unfortunately stop, and though it manages to show the Flow history/Notifications but does not mirror the device screen on Windows. Update (Jan. 11, 2020): Wow! The app is now working beautifully again and I noticed some errors have been fixed. Good job developers! you've earned back those lost stars...

    I'm old...and YEARS AGO.......someone came up with the phrase; "WHEN SOMETHING WORKS, YOU DON'T FIX IT!" THAT SAID......I understand that the software engineers and IT people need to justify their jobs, and one day out of sheer boredom, they needed to look busy.....and that's all fine and well......BUT......repeat after me, Skippy: WHEN SOMETHING WORKS, YOU DON'T FIX IT!

    The Home, Back, and Recent Apps buttons at the bottom of Smart View are gone since the update. I can't find how to get them back. I can only use these buttons physically on the phone itself, which defeats the purpose of the Smart View... Any ideas? UPDATE after response: Nope, still not fixed. Buttons are still missing. UPDATE: Fixed, thanks! Dec.21, 2019. Rating updated.

    I am unable to connect my Samsung S6 tablet to PC with USB. It tells me that for Flow on the PC to connect the tablet needs to have Android Version Q (version 10). The S6 has current Android version 9 including recent update. There seems to be no way to update the Android to version Q (which seems to be specifically for Google Pixel devices). I don't know what, if anything, I am missing here. When connected by USB the S6 appears as drive and files can be retrieved without needing Flow!
