    Default New to Android, wondering what everyone uses for a backup.

    Hello all, I was wondering if there is an application for backing up my Galaxy S5 similar to what the iPhone does with icloud. Wanting it to backup when connected to WiFi and able to reload a complete backup including messages, emails, pictures, apps...well you get the picture. I'm rooted on AT&T and although I'm pretty smart with other technology, Android still gets me stumped so the easiest application would be awesome. Thanks.

    This isn't WiFi, it is USB 3.0 but works a treat

    Ok thanks. I have that downloaded on my desktop. That will work out OK but I was just curious if there was another way just like the iPhone and iPad. I downloaded something the other day that didn't work and it reset my phone to factory settings loosing everything. I just want to make sure I have a good backup in case this happens again.

    I don't know the one I use is exactly like the iPhone but is very similar. You can back all the apps that allow you to back them or just do certain apps, in any event there is a version for rooted and non rooted phones and is called HELIUM, you might want to check it out.

    Not 100% sure but I think it was the second one down on this list. I can't even remember what it was now.
