    I'm going tomorrow to get my G3 switched out to the S5.

    I backed up my apps and it says on my phone my data, apps, etc., are backed up to my Google account (my email used to install apps and such).

    Once I get the S5, where can I access these on the S5?

    Hmm doesn't work for me. LOL.

    Hahah thanks. I hope. I put it for trade on CL and someone offered me an S4 plus cash. Uh no.

    Someone else offered me a Note 4 locked to the carrier I'm using but the thing is, my carrier does not carry the Note 4. I even asked my friend who works there and he says they haven't carried the Note for a while so I'm a bit hesitant on that part.

    S4 would be a huge downgrade, IMO.

    When you log into your Google account on the S5, it will sync automatically

    If you selected the option to backup apps/data to that Google account when you first activated the device.

    ^^ exactly^^
    As long as you have your contacts saved to Google and your apps synced, your photos and music saved to your pc, everything will load fine once you get your new device. Simply log into your main Google account, once everything updates you can then use your usb cable to connect to your pc and transfer your files & music. Easy peasy! Holler if you need a hand with anything @shadownet!
