    I know there are apps like "SMS Backup+" for that, but I'm interested if the kitkat's hangout also backups regular text messages or just hangout chats.

    Open up your settings and scroll down to User and Back up

    Then open up accounts

    Click on your Samsung account (it will ask for your password)

    Then scroll down to "back up" and tap it

    All of mine were already checked. When I got my s5, as soon as I started it up and signed in to samsung it gives you the option to restore sms and mms texts. I didn't restore mms because I knew I had tons and didn't need them or want to wait. Hope this is of some help.

    Thanks but for some reason I don't have "messages" in there: http://i.imgur.com/mZQwBcr.png

    Also, is there any way to backup my installed applications and "desktop" folders (icon organization) to the cloud (without a pc) ?
