Back Ups

2017-09-11, 16:50 PM

Ok, had this question on my last two phones, and outside of sounding stupid here it goes. I am confused about back ups. I have Drive backup, verizon back up and I believe things that go to my Google account. There may be more, I am not sure. Do I use them all or which one is the best. I mainly only need apps, contacts, and pictures saved. Seems I had most when I moved to this phone except pictures so I did something wrong. How do you folks handle this? Thanks for any advice in advance.

Solved! See the solution

I use the built in google contacts and photo apps - both backup to my google account. I switch phones regularly, and all my information is always there. 

when swapping phones, Contacts sync to the phone. Photos show thumbnails, but don't download to a new phone automatically. But photos are always backed up to google.

I do the same as Alphadog, but also use Facebook Moments just to have redundancy for my photos.
