My girlfriend recently got a new Nokia 6.1 device with Android One. Her last device got damaged and data was lost so I'd like to make sure this one is optimally backed up.
I'm used to backing up my iPhone to my desktop via iTunes as well as into the cloud. Is there a similar official desktop software for Nokia devices? I could find Kies for Samsung devices but no Nokia equivalent.
The Nokia 6.1 User Guide has an entry that explains how to enable automatic backups in Settings - but no further information as to how it works. You can choose a Google account to associate the backup with but this seems optional rather than required.
Does this mean that the backup data is by default stored with Nokia and just somehow linked with her Google account? And if I set her Google account as the "Backup Account" then the data will only be stored in her Google Drive?
Finally, if you choose this automatic cloud backup option would the only recovery option be another Nokia Android One device? Or would it be possible for her to get a new phone that's for instance a Samsung and restore to that device?
Any advice would be much appreciated, I'm new to how things work with Android.
