I have a new Galaxy S9 (first Android phone in my life) and the options on Settings to configure the backup is confusing.

I don't know what to choose, Samsung Cloud or Google Backup, both seems to backup the same thing, or not?.

I did a test, I used both (Samsung first, then Google) to do a backup and I restored the phone from these backups and I never got anything restore.

  1. Samsung Cloud or Google Bakcup? what are the differences? Is very important to me to backup the Apps I have installed, the "Settings" configuration and the layout of my screen, ringtones, wallpaper, well, a backup of everything. (as an Iphone does)

  2. How and where to configure to do a daily backup automatically?

  3. How and where to enable Find my phone?

  • I don't know about Samsung Cloud, but Google isn't going to do the kind of backup you are looking for. But peruse this list for something instead: androidauthority.com/… – user202027 Apr 24 '18 at 20:22
  • Go Titanium. If you can get TWRP, then Nandroid is also a solid choice – Manchineel Apr 25 '18 at 9:44
