Before going for an Android official firmware or say, operating system upgrade, we always recommend you to backup your data as a precaution against being sorry later. You should backup apps + data periodically for things which I don’t think need to explain. A small step can save you from a lot of headache later, if something goes wrong.
Making a backup is easy on an Android phone. It can be achieved without any coding or tweaking hassle. There are dedicated apps available on Google Play for backup data.
Below are the apps to back-up your Android data.
- Go Backup pro: backup messages, apps + data, contacts, schedule them and more.
- Titanium Backup Pro: backup apps + data to cloud storage (drive, Box and more)
- Use Go Backup pro mentioned above to make the backup. I don’t think you need a separate software for messages and apps, when one app can do the whole task.
Backup Contacts to your Gmail;
- If you have a Google ID, you can automatically backup contacts to ‘Contacts’ in Gmail account. To do so, go to Settings > Accounts and Sync > Add Account (add gmail account and also choose what to sync). To sync automatically when you are online, enable ‘Activate auto-sync’.
