As much as we try hard it is difficult to imagine a life without our smartphones. We spend an important part of our using the smartphone and a large amount of our data is stored there.
However, there is always the fear of the data getting lost due to some or the other issues. To avoid that it is recommended that we keep the data backed up at all times. For Android phones, there are multiple apps which can help you do so and here we have brought together a list of the same.
Using these apps you can restore the data into a safer position. In case the data is breached you can still hope of getting it back since you have already protected it. Apart from that, you can also heave a sigh of relief as hackers won’t get access to your important details.
This app lets you automatically synchronize files and folders with Microsoft OneDrive cloud storage and with your other devices. It is an ideal tool for photo sync, photo upload, music download, document and file backup, automatic file transfer, automatic file sharing between devices,
New files in your cloud account are automatically downloaded onto your device. New files in your device are uploaded. If you delete a file on one side, it will be deleted on the other side. It works across multiple devices (your phone and your tablet). If their folders are synced with the same cloud account, they will be kept in sync with each other. This is how OneDrive works on desktop but it is not the same with the official Android app that only works manually and has no synchronization capability.
Allows you to designate folders in Windows to monitor, and when files are modified, added, or deleted, the changes are reflected on a remote FTP site. Great for Web developers. You no longer have to worry about whether you uploaded that file or not, if it’s in your local development directory, it is in your remote one too. I am looking for features you would like added, as well as bugs in the current version.
2. App Backup
All the features you’ll ever need in an application Management/Backup/Restore/Share software, with powerful and reliable performance that you can not compromise (no root required). There are so many reasons why it is preferred over other similar apps – reputation doesn’t come easily. Backup and share any System/Internal/SD Card App (single/multiple at the same time) that can be installed later.
Review: Play Store
A great app if you like to keep backups of your apps. There are icons that show you which apps need to be backed up and which APKs are no longer installed. The list loads a little slow, but otherwise great functionality.
3. Backup Your Mobile
The application can backup and restore: Contacts, SMSes, MMSes, Call logs, System settings, Secure system settings, Wifi passwords, User dictionary, APNs, Calendar events, User applications, Bookmarks, and browser history. Backups are stored on SD card or in device memory, it is also possible to store data on Google Drive, Dropbox or OneDrive (SkyDrive).
It is possible to schedule automatic backups. The application can automatically upload backups to Google Drive, Dropbox or OneDrive (SkyDrive). It is possible to copy data from one device to another by uploading and downloading backups to/from Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, by moving SD card from one device to another or by copying BackpYourMobile folder between devices.
Android phones become more powerful and more useful, they also store more of your important personal data. Losing that data can be more than a minor inconvenience, and given the fragility of electronic devices, it’s something that’s likely to happen at some point. MyBackup Pro is an app that will give you peace of mind if your phone gets destroyed in a mishap such as an impromptu dip in the toilet or a shattering drop to the pavement. You can schedule automatic backups and restore your apps, data, and settings to a new phone (or to the same phone if the data was accidentally erased) in just minutes.
4. Easy Backup
Simpler Backup is the easiest way to backup and restores your contacts directly from your phone. You can backup all your contacts with a single touch and send yourself a .vcf attachment via email. All your contacts can easily be restored at any time by simply opening a .vcard file through your mailbox. Simpler supports any kind of provider: Google, Exchange, Yahoo, Facebook, LinkedIn, Gmail, iCloud, Outlook.
I use I-cloud to back up my Apple mobile devices. Within my mobile devices, I run and use an Outlook via from 1 of 2 Microsoft Accounts. In addition, I have office 365 Business Premium and use Exchange for Microsoft using the same Outlook app. All my email accounts have its own contact list, that all backs up to I-Cloud. This causes contacts to have multiple contacts show up. This App merges mutable contacts to create 1 completed contact. So a contact that repeated with it just having a phone number, email, location address all combine into one complete contact. So far it works great, I’m using the Free Version to get a better understanding of the setting and what other things this app will do before upgrading to the paid Version.
5. G Cloud

6. Google Photos
The official Google Photos app is made for the way you take photos today and includes essential features, such as shared albums, automatic creations and an advanced editing suite. You won’t have to worry about storage either, as you can choose to back up all your photos and videos automatically for free in high quality. You can then access them from any connected device and on photos.google.com.
Review: tom’s guide
Google Photos is the only photo app that we consider a necessity for any mobile device. If you’ve ever lost all your media files when your phone died or was misplaced, you’ll understand why. While it only has minimal editing tools, Google Photos organizes your photos and videos, offers easy sharing and — most importantly — automatically backs up your entire image library to the cloud. From there, it seamlessly syncs to all your devices where the app is installed. That includes Apple phones, laptops, tablets and desktop computers; Windows computers, and all Android devices.
First backup everything. Then flash your new ROM. Now (surprise) flash the backup zip file(s)! Yes, a part of the restoration process occurs via TWRP recovery. Make sure to root your new custom ROM with Magisk.
Once everything is flashed, boot up your new ROM. You’ll get a notification to continue the restoration process. Grant root access and relax until everything is restored.
Pros: There was great flexibility in the work, it was challenging and dynamic and there is so much opportunity to take new responsibility and prove yourself
Cons: toxic work environment, human employees are treated as if no different than a piece of equipment, bad overall morale. The pay was often late without warning or explanation to employees. Overall, day to day operations was very disorganized as well.
8. Resilio Sync
Sync lets you transfer files directly from device to device. Share photos, videos, docs without storage limits: our technology works especially well with huge files.
Create your own private cloud. Connect devices and sync files securely between your Mac, PC, NAS, and even server. Use Sync on your mobile to access the files you keep on your home computer or work laptop.
Sync encrypts all files during transfer and never stores any of your information on third-party servers. This means your data is protected against identity theft or attacks.
Pros: That even if the main hub/server goes offline Resilio will intelligently find where the information is stored on client computers and turn those computers into hosts automatically.
Cons: The pricing structure. Having to buy bundles of licenses, rather than being able to buy one at a time.
Overall: We had used the built-in Synology cloud sync, but that was starting to get overwhelmed with the size of folders that we wanted to sync. Resilio has no problem with the size and will intelligently find the fastest route to send large files. Either via Lan or Wan. Because of how well Resilio functions, we were able to move away from FTP access and Synology cloud sync and start using Resilio for everything.
9. Super Backup Pro
If your phone has inbuilt storage, the default backup location will probably be the internal storage card and not the external. This is because the phone reports the storage that way. If you intend to do a factory reset on the phone, please make sure default backup folder is in your external SD card before doing it. If not, please copy the entire backup folder (“SmsContactsBackup” by default)to your external SD card
I trusted this to work seamlessly but now after a factory reset, I am unable to restore it simply stays on the pop up asking to select the file.
10. Titanium Backup
You can backup, restore, freeze (with Pro) your apps + data + Market links. This includes all protected apps & system apps, plus external data on your SD card. You can do 0-click batch & scheduled backups. Backups will operate without closing any apps (with Pro). You can move any app (or app data) to/from the SD card. You can browse any app’s data and even query the Market to see detailed information about the app.
I Absolutely love this app and all of the features it has! It is a billion times better than any other backup app listed in the Play store. For every one or anyone who would like a user-friendly, simple App that easy to learn, especially, if your a newbie like me. This is by far, one of the Best! So, what are you waiting for? That’s right, hurry up! You know what you have to do. Download this App and you will see exactly what I am talking about. An entire Menu is full of exciting options to check out your Rooted device. Batches; Roms; Zip-Unzip; Export; Import; You can accomplish incredible feats and when your done tweaking all your options just Back it up.
