    Information

    You should always make sure that personal content on your device, e.g. photos, videos, SMS text messages, contacts and applications, are synced or a backup is completed on a regular basis. This will help you smoothly transfer content to another device or restore content to your current device after a factory data reset. The recommended solution is to use the Google Cloud™ services, including Google account sync, Google Drive™, and Google Photos™. An alternative method is to use a PC or SD card. Visit the data migration page and the various methods to sync or back up data section.
