Can you help me back up my phone? I want to back up everything on it?

I have a Galaxy S5. I am looking to back up my phone. I used to have an iPhone and it was easy through iTunes. Now I am looking for an easy way I can back it up once a month in a similar way to my old iPhone.

Since your Galaxy S5 is made by Samsung, you can use Samsung Kies 3 to backup your phone to your computer in a very similar fashion to the way iTunes did with your iPhone. Just plug your Galaxy S5 into your computer after Kies 3 has installed and click the Backup/Restore option and follow the guidelines. You can backup as frequently as you want to. The backups will be stored on your computer for easy access should you ever have to restore your phone. Note that Kies 3 does not include a music or app store like iTunes does; this application is strictly for syncing with and backing up your Samsung Galaxy S5. If you want to access your applications, click this link and log into your Google account. Then click My Apps. If you use Google Music, you can click this link to manage your music from your computer, as well.

How to backup my files from Galaxy S5 to a Dell laptop?

I need help to back up information from my Galaxy S5 to a Dell laptop

Having a backup of all of your files on your PC is a very smart thing to do. This is because there are so many ways that you can lose your files, or lock your Samsung Galaxy S5. If that happens, your data is gone, or you'll need to perform a Hard Reset of your phone, which will erase everything on the phone's internal memory.
