Hi,

I've reset my Galaxy S5 to factory default. Then I tried to import the backup but all it apparently backed up were some sms etc then it threw an error it could not restore!

What backup solution for Android can restore the full config (with applications etc) such as the iCloud of Iphone does that greatly?

Have you tried Samsungs backup/restore utility?

Hi janhoedt,

This below app - G cloud backup try. Which will backup/restore in cloud as per requirement, but this might be paid service. Not sure, Please explore it by reading and downloading the app.
