In having an iDevice, I'm use to being able to do a full and complete backup with app data saved using iTunes.  How would I do this on the Nexus 5 without rooting?   Also, how would I do the full and complete restore?

That's a good link - thanks although unless I'm mistaken or doing it wrong, the backup of apps to Google's servers doesn't actually save the application data - just the apps.  For example, I use Google Authenticator and I need the site data I place in it to be saved (e.g. Google, Evernote, Dropbox).  With an iDevice, it's a done deal using iTunes but with Google restore, I only get the app back but not it's data, or am I wrong or doing something wrong?

Thanks for the tips - I always found an app called Helium that works well.
