How to Backup and Restore Android Device

Android doesn't offer a native backup service, so it's easy to ignore the need to do so. But don't wait until it's too late to start thinking about backing up your phone. In fact, it is very important for all Android users backing up their phone contents to computer. That way, you can keep and restore all Android data from computer whenever the origional one get deleted or lost during the process of formatting SD card, resetting to factory data, rooting phone, etc. So before a thief swipes that phone, or a spilled cup of coffee bricks it, here comes the question: how can I backup and restore Android data to computer?

Google might help. Go to Settings > Privacy, and make sure that "Back up my settings" and "Automatic restore" are checked off. Go to Settings > Accounts and sync, open your Gmail account, and check off all options. With these settings in place, your contacts, system settings, apps, calendar, and e-mail will be restored whenever you set up a new Android phone with that same Gmail account.

However, Google hasn't implemented a native photos and text messages backup service yet.
