Samsung Kies/ˈkz/[1] is a freewaresoftware application used to communicate between Windows or Macintosh operating systems, and more recently manufactured Samsungmobile phone and tablet computer devices, usually using a USB connection (though wireless LAN Kies connectivity is now possible using some devices). Samsung has released new software to replace Kies, named Samsung Smart Switch, which is mainly directed at migrating customers onto new Samsung devices. The name K.I.E.S. originated as an acronym for 'Key Intuitive Easy System'. After version 2.0, the name was shortened to 'Kies'.

Versions[edit]

Kies is available in several versions and editions, depending on the specific Samsung device and the OS it is running. Kies (currently in version 2.6.4.20043_5) supports devices with Android 2.1 through 4.2. Kies3 (version 3.x) supports devices with Android Jelly Bean (4.3 and up). Trying to use Kies with newer devices, or Kies3 with older devices, will result in an error message.[2]

There is also a Kies Mini version, which is available only for specific devices such as Samsung Captivate, Infuse, or Vibrant.[3] It is used to update these devices' operating systems (OS versions). Though there are both Windows and Mac(intosh) versions of the full Kies product,[4] there is only a Windows version of Kies Mini for most Samsung devices; however, non-Windows users may overcome this limitation by using a Windows virtual machine, installing Kies Mini within it and connecting a Samsung device via USB cable to accomplish the OS update.[citation needed]. On Windows devices, the file transfer happens via a plug-and-play mode.[5]Note that since 2012, Intel processors mounted the Cache Acceleration Software, which was tuned by system administrators when connected with SSD cards.

Although Kies connectivity has traditionally been via mini or micro-USB cable (needing of some software, and not plug and play), wireless LAN connectivity between a Samsung device on which the Kies Wireless Android app[6] is running, and any Windows or Macintosh computer running the Kies full version, is now also possible. The Kies Wireless app also supports wireless connectivity with other devices via said other devices' web browsers. All such connectivity, though, must be via a local Wi-Fi connection (and not via cellular2G, 3G, or 4G data networks) wherein all involved devices are on the same Wi-Fi LAN.[7]

The full version of Kies may be downloaded from the Samsung Global Download Center[8] or from the download part of an individual mobile device's technical support web page on the Samsung website. With few exceptions, it is usually only the Kies Mini version, and not the full version, which is typically downloadable from a given Samsung device.

Smart Switch is part of a technical and commercial strategy finalized to connect all electronics in a unique semi-automation system, which is managed via a smartphone central app of Samsung.[9]

Alternative software[edit]

Since 2012, most of the Intel product line just mounted the Cache Acceleration Software, both as an accelerator and a temporary database in connection with the parallel subsystem named Intel Management Engine (with ring-3 privilege inside the device).

Although lockstep, simple and oldest Trivial File Transfer Protocol was optimized for a client-server network, far different from a one-to-one and peer-to-peer connection.

Android File Transfer for Linux is a FOSS app, stable since version 2.2.,[10] though FOSS has somewhere (e.g. on GitHub) protected under the copyright law, and subject to file robots.txt mirroring exclusions.

Keep your Samsung handset's applications and firmware up to date while synchronizing it with your PC using this software application

Samsung is one of the most popular mobile phone manufacturers in the world, and since users throughout the globe purchase their handsets on a regular basis, it comes as no surprise that they also developed dedicated computer tools to manage mobile data via PCs. Samsung KiesMini is such a software solution.

Only dedicated to a few models

As suggested by its title, it is a minimalist version of Samsung Kies, as it features fewer functions than the full edition. The main difference resides in the fact that Samsung Kies Mini can only be used with certain phone models (such as Vibrant, Captivate or Infuse), whereas Samsung Kies is compatible with a wider range of devices.

In order to benefit from the functions of Samsung Kies Mini, users need to connect their phones via USB cable to the computer, then wait until the application displays the available updates for the exact phone model. Users can choose to apply all or only part of the offered upgrades, depending on their choice.

Charge before use to prevent damage

The handset's battery needs to be fully charged - installing or updating new apps on the phone typically puts a strain on it, and insufficiently charged battery might prevent the process from completion. One also needs to keep in mind that they should not disconnect the phone from the computer until Samsung Kies Mini displays a message that the process has finished (otherwise, the handset might become inoperable).

Create a backup to be on the safe side

Before updating the phone's apps or firmware, it is recommended to create a backup just in case issues occur - thus, users can be sure that their data is not lost during the update process (including contacts, messages or multimedia files).

Furthermore, rebooting the phone is expected behavior, so users need not panic about this - once the update is completed and the Idle Screen of the phone is displayed, the handset can be disconnected from the computer and users can start exploring the new apps and features installed on their device, just as expected.

To end with

Taking everything into consideration, we can say that Samsung Kies Mini is a handy alternative for its bigger brother, but only if your device is found on the list of supported ones. Keeping firmware and drivers up to date can prevent unexpected crashes, so you might want to give this utility a try.
