I haven’t done mine for awhile 🙈 it’s been going for an hour and a half - does anyone seriously do this on any kind of regular basis?
How often do you back up your phone?
What Guys Said 38
Apart from photos, music, contacts and some documents, I don't think there's anything important enough to be backed up.
So, I plug it into my PC and copy the new data there (roughly) monthly. There are a few benefits of doing so
●No need of a network connection
●No Internet data loss
●No need to remember passwords
●Lesser chances of hacking
●Media can be streamed on multiple devices
●Can delete unnecessary files on phone to maintain storage availability
The only downside is that you will have to protect your HDD (or SSD if you're rich) from damage and accidental formatting.1
Mine does a cloud backup nightly.
Before that, doing a wired backup would take I think 30 minutes or so? depends on the connection.
Phones get wiped, lost, destroyed, corrupted. If you have a lot of stuff you value it's worth backing up.1
no never there is no real point to a phone ur photos either auto save to googles OneDrive or u have the option to upload them to a pc everytime u plug in ur charger to a pc wether its apple or android and the apps aren't important to back up as they save to the internet and can be redownloaded contacts also have there own system so there's no real reason to apart from if u have apple and get that annoying message1

I literally never do.1
I never back up my phone. I manually back up important stuff like pictures I want to keep in Google drive and every 6-8 months factory reset the device to keep it running how it's supposed to.1
Only the addresses, on Google1
I do every week1
Very rarely do i back up my phone. I really should do so.1
I do kind of. I never keep anything important on my phone1
Not really the only back ups I do are for games1
Never, I don't keep anything on my phone for a long time.
When I make pics for example, I send them to my e-mail address and later save them on my laptop (with a back-up on a stick).0
All the important stuff is on the sd card and backed up to Google services. I occasionally backup stuff from the phone and sd card to my PC, but it's just drop and drag so it is quick. When i used to have an iphone it was a pain to sync/backup to my computer. Took forever.0
All of my important information are stored on a external hard drive.1
yes.. I do... that for my contacts... some other stuff...1
Depends. Just cloud it or plug it into a laptop and move everything especially if you have a lot on it0
Never. I don't rely on my phone like most people that I know.0
I have most stuff auto backing up over two cloud services that sync all the time.
Mostly nothing else to backup.1
Never backed up my phone once.0
I don’t have a backup girl or a backup phone haha0

Can’t u set it to do that while u sleep? 🤔0
Just photos, contacts and music. Essential0
Rarely... Only when I'm switching the OS or messing with the software0

I don't think I have ever done a full back up. I have certain data backed up on my Google account, but that's pretty much it.0
I don't have anything on my phone, all of it goes to cloud services... Google photos, mail, Evernote, game save files, it's all on the cloud.2
