5 Ways to Backup Android Videos

Boey WongUpdated by Boey Wong / March 10, 2021 09:00

I got the dreaded low storage space warning message recently on my Samsung phone. So I think I should back up my videos and then delete them from the phone to release plenty of storage space. Please help! Thanks in advance!

No matter your Android phone packs the maximum RAM and internal storage or not, you need to back things up because:

  1. The low storage space may have a bad influence on the system running normally. If you haven't backed up your data, you would lose them when the system crashed.
  2. As for precious photos and videos that you want to watch anytime and anywhere, you should back them up to cloud or computer.

Google developed various cloud service applications for users: Google Photos, Google Drive, Gmail, etc.

Thus, there's no difficulty to backup your Android data to the cloud as long as there is a network connection.

However, it's better to make a local backup in case you have no internet connection.

I would like to show you both how to backup Android to cloud and to PC/Mac in the remaining passages.
