Today, I will show you 3 methods of Samsung data backup. Pick up the one that fits you and keep your Samsung data safe.
First of all, let’s see how to back up your Samsung phone to a computer.
Why a computer? Well, it saves more data than a phone and free cloud storage. 1TB, the maximum of current Samsung phone storage, is also the minimum of regular computer storage. And 15GB is the free capacity of Google cloud backup.

What is Android Data Backup?

You may choose to back up all the data on your Samsung or just part of them by selecting the exact types of data. You can get rid of those needless data and save some space for your hard drive.
Besides, if the target computer is being used by not just you, like your family and friends, encrypt your backup. By setting up a password to the backup file, you’re the only one that has access to your secret photos, videos and other data.
Launch the program and choose Android Data Backup & Restore. There, you can click on the One-click Backup button. And Android Data Backup will save all your Samsung data to the computer. You just need to decide on a folder to hold them.
Or, click on Device Data Backup to have a more flexible backup. You’re available to choose the type(s) of data for the backup. Check those that you need and leave the rest.

Samsung Cloud, the default backup service of Samsung Galaxy, is undoubtedly the most practical backup tool. Well, it backs up your Samsung data automatically. Also, for Samsung users, this is easy to start when you have your Samsung account logged in on your Samsung Galaxy.

Hit Manage account - Samsung account - Sync account - More options (3 vertical dots) - Settings - Sync and auto-backup Settings - Auto back up.
On the new screen, choose the data that you need. There’re Call Logs, Messages, Contacts, Calendars, Clock, Settings, Samsung Daily, Home screen, Apps, Music, Voice Recorder, Documents, Photos, etc.
Exit and you’re good to go. Samsung will now start to back up your Samsung Cloud every 24 hours when it’s connected to a Wi-fi network or it’s charging.
Samsung is using Android OS for all their devices, Galaxy S phone, Flip phones, and Galaxy Tab S tablets. So, we can use Android’s recommended backup service - Google Backup, offered by Google.
Similar to Samsung Cloud, it’s a cloud backup service and it saves your data automatically as well. But it’s more compatible and has less restrictions. So, later when you want to switch from Samsung to another brand, you can easily transfer data through Google backup.
