    Question FULL Backup and Restore...No Root!

    I have a HTC Desire S, not rooted. A lot of customizations, personal dictionaries, apps, pictures etc.

    Let's say I lose the phone, or it gets stolen, or it breaks down whatever.

    How can I get EVERYTHING back on a new device? By everything I mean I log in with my Google account to the new device, I run some backup utility and all the apps and their settings, pictures, home shortcuts, videos etc are back like the old device.

    Is this possible? I read plentys of post but I did not find a viable solution

    So far I have different tools in place:

    - Dropbox saves my pictures automatically to the cloud

    - SugarSync syncs some of my folders to the cloud, so I can get that content back. Many apps allow me to backup their settings to SD, some of them offer auto schedule backup

    - Google backs up my mails, contacts, calendar etc so that is not a problem

    Not sure if I will get everything back this way though..and what does the "Backup and Restore" function, under "Privacy", do? I got my phone back from a repair and I had to re-install all my apps manually moreover all the settings were gone...

    Many suggest Titanium backup, but I can't be bothered to root my phone...other mybackup pro (and send the backup to the cloud)

    Right now I am about to try Sandisk memory zone which lets me backup my whole SD and the internal memory to the cloud (Box for example, where I have 50GB available)...

    What are your suggestions? What is the best approach to have a sort of iTunes backup function like in iOS?

    Thanks

    Without root you're limited to the contents of your sd card being saved plus as you say your Google account details(contacts, apps purchased, Drive, calendar etc). Your launcher may let you back up settings or even widgets(you'd need to install the ap again first) and obviously your using dropbox for personal stuff but any data pertaining to apks such as settings, game progress and so on, will be lost as it'll be stored internally, which you would need root to access.
