    Im going to have a go at a factory reset because since 4.2, my N7 has been a nightmare in terms of lag, freezes, reboots but I wanted to get clarification on a couple of things first:

    1) When I factory reset my S2, I lose apps, settings etc but I dont lose photos, videos etc because theyre all automatically saved on the internal SD am I to assume that because of the one storage space on the N7 that I will lose absolutely everything and should back up accordingly?

    2) When Google re-downloads my apps, will it still do what it used to in the past and try to download every app Ive ever downloaded on my Google account, including stuff Ive previously uninstalled and stuff Ive got on my phone?

    3) Is there any way to save game progress other than Titanium Backup (I dont want to root)? Ive got SaveShare which backs selected games to Dropbox but doesnt include a few of my favourites.

    Thanks!

    1. Yes, all pics will be deleted. so backup. i auto backup pics, video to google +
    2.Yes, it will download but only the one you installed. any uninstalled apps wont install
    3. use carbon app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ikdutta.backup works without root. need to run a pc app to do this
