Recommended Moto G4 Plus backup tools

2016-09-01, 7:45 AM

Hello,

I recently purchased a Moto G4 Plus.

What are the recommended backup tools ?

I'm looking for a windows PC backup (and restore) solution.

Official Motorola/Lenovo answer appreciated.

Thanks

-Pierre

There is no "official" answer to your question. And, this is a peer-to-peer forum, with few Moto employees, except for those issues where their intervention is required.

 

Google has enhanced their automatic backup capabilities so your account can now backup app data, but that ability must be built into each third party app by its developer.

 

If you use GMail, your account can sync your settings, contacts, calendar, photos, videos, and documents to the cloud automatically.  There are free programs that will backup your call log and texts.

 

You can also hook your phone up to your computer and copy files there.

 

There are paid apps that perform backups as well, and they all have different capabilities.

 

Forum users may make recommendations here for you, but again, there is no one official way to protect your data.  With all of the choices available, though, I'm sure you'll find the way that's best for you.

@crystallet: Thanks very much.

By "official" I was more meaning "supported".

When you Google "motorola android phone backup", you find the below links (2 first ones from Motorola sites) and I have trouble determining whether they are still valid (not outdated) and also valid for a Moto G4 plus.

https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/78556

https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/prod_answer_detail/a_id/13034

https://www.recovery-android.com/backup-and-restore-android.html

https://www.android-recovery.net/backup-motorola-data.html

Kind advice welcome !

Thanks again

@KylieMinogue Participation is generally appreciated, but only when a forum member has an ANSWER to offer. If you don't have an answer, you need not post a statement to that effect.

@crystallet : Thanks a lot for your answer.

Actually by "official" I was more meaning "supported".

Googling on "motorola android phone backup" has shown some hits (some from motorola support) and I wonder if they are valid for Android 6.0 and Moto G4 plus : can anyone tell ?

That's the 3rd time I do this reply and it never appears ...

I was saying that by "official" I was more meaning "supported".

By googling "motorola android phone backup", I have found a number of pages that provide answers ...

- https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/78556

- https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/prod_answer_detail/a_id/13034

- http://www.syncios.com/android-backup/backup-and-restore-moto-g.html

- https://www.android-recovery.net/backup-motorola-data.html

Any advice on whether those pages are still valid for a Moto G4 plus ?

Also recommendation on best (free) android phone backup tools would be much appreciated (incl. for phone logs, SMS).

-Pierre
