I found it easy to reinstall all my apps. The Google Play store has a record of what you bought and what you have on your account.
When I bought my S21 I went to GP and it showed a list of all my apps. Tap and install and I was done.
It was pretty painless.

Yup your phone is dead or dying. Happened to me many years ago.

It takes some time but apps are the easy part.

It's the files such as pictures. If you give Google access to everything in your life, it's protected from hardware failure but not from Google being hacked. Pick your poison.

Ignorance is bliss?

If you just use it as a phone and leave everything else turned off, that approach works fine.

If you actually use more of the functionality, having at least basic security approach is very valuable.

2old man doesn't worry because as a photographer, he has offline hardware backups in place and (I think) his own photo websites,
He is Not being careless, it just seemed that way,
Because he did not elaborate


I can explain it to you.
But I Can Not understand it for you !
