Best program to backup Android phone data?

I need a recommendation for a good (free) program which would backup (almost) everything on an android phone (like making Windows Image with e.g. Acronis True Image), which would save everything on PC (or SD card). I'm not a fan of the native Google’s backup system, as it backups to a cloud, and is not very complete in my opinion.
I wish a program, that will, on my request, backup on my PC:
-All current Android system settings
-All installed apps
-All apps data
-All contacts
-All messages
-etc...

And on, my latter request, from such an "image" of the system, could restore any of these individual types of data...

While I used Nokia, it had a very good program called PCSuite (installed on PC), which would do that exactly and perfectly...
Now I'm looking something similar for Android smartphone

This is as good an article as you will get, on total android backup

Assuming that you have Samsung Kies installed (and therefore the usb driver) then just go into windows explorer and copy everything ('manual backup' in the article). This gives better results with a rooted android device.

What value do put on your data and time?
It may be better to simply to pay the $5 mentioned in the article.

Thanks, but I don't quite see how that article in the posted link about creating accounts on Win 8 relates with my question?...

npaun,

Firman's comments are right on target for general data backup. There is a way for Ice Cream Sandwich (and above) phones to image the phone, if you want to restore the SAME phone. Not so useful for trying to backup data that might go to another phone.
