    Hi, I never had an android phone but will buy this one if most of the rumors are true. how do you backup an Android phone? Is there a Google app for PC and Macs? Is it on the Cloud? It's probably a stupid question, sorry... Do you think BlackBerry will find a way to use BB10 backups or an easy way to switch from BB10 to this phone? I would love to be able to transfer most of my passport (app settings, sms, photos,...) to this new phone in an easy way (no 3rd part apps or geek method). Thanks

    Most services/apps save settings in the cloud. There is no universal back-up solution for Android. Some OEMs (like LG) provide proprietary solutions for back-up.

    Still, looking at my Android device, except for SMS and Whatsapp messages there is very little i need saved or would actually miss being lost (photos and contacts are automatically saved to the cloud).

    Well using Google, you're able to back up all your contacts, and calendar entries. Same if you use Google keep (note taking app)

    Also, I use Google voice/hangouts for text messaging. I have messages all the way back from 2008. Not sure why I'd want those but it's nice to have I guess.

    I am sure BlackBerry will add BlackBerry Link support for Android too.
