Sprite backup Android is just one of the many ways you can back up your Android device. Most people choose Sprite over other backup apps because it is all inclusive. It can be used to back up everything on your Android including application data, web bookmarks, call logs, music files, videos and even text messages. It also comes with a restore function that makes it very easy for you to restore the backup. All you have to do tap on the relevant data type and it will be restored. The only problem with Sprite is that the backup can only be stored either on your SD card or the Android's internal storage. This is a problem as all the backup files could be lost if the Android itself is damaged or the SD card is corrupted.
