Reply to post: Backup

Good God, we've found a Google thing we like – the Pixel iPhone killer

Unless I missed something, backup on android still sucks.

By backup, I mean over wifi every night, when I put the phone on charge.

I then take phone, kill it, get new phone same model do something - restore, re-identify, whatever.

It then restores and the phone is the same as the broken one, no need to re-set up a single up, no missing text messages, nothing.

Last time I tried android it needed adb and a command line to do anything close.

Plus, not all the apps worked as before after the restore.
