Mobile phones, or smartphones as they are now called, have become indispensable devices that hold all our contacts, important messages, business-related files, and memories. Losing our mobile phone’s data is not a thing that we would like to happen.
But there are situations where you might lose your mobile phone or its data no matter how much care you take. That’s why it is always recommended to create backups of important data. With so many easy ways to create backups, there is no excuse for not doing so. Following are the 4 ways to back up your mobile phone’s data, and while they are particularly for Android phones their alternatives exist for other devices as well.
- Google Account
Gone are the days when people lost all their contacts because they lost their mobile phone. Now, Google syncs your contacts, and some other files, to the Google server. But this only happens if you are signed in to your Google account on your Android device. If you are not, you might need to manually backup your contacts.
- Backup Apps
Many backup apps exist for Android, as well as other platforms, to back up your mobile phone’s data. Just search for a suitable app and install it. Most apps give you an option to back up your data locally or on the server. If you back up your mobile phone’s data on the same phone, you might lose your data if your phone is lost or broken.
- Using a Recovery Program
A recovery program, like TWRP, you can back up not only your data but your complete operating system. And you can restore it at your convenience. Installing a recovery program needs some extra effort, however. And you often forego your warranty when you install a recovery program.
- Manual Backup
You will be amazed by the power of manual backup, once you lose your data only to know that you saved these files to your computer. Not very efficient, but better than no doing backups at all.
