Exclamation Smartphone back up options?

I am just wondering how are people backing up there smartphones, sms, contacts, ect. I currently only use the SMS backup app and save contact on to Gmail.

Is there an easy to to back up the whole phone? Or what backup procedures do the elite PC enthusiast use.

If you know a great guide out there feel free to share.

As I have an Android phone I use Titanium Backup as it will back up any information along with apps to the phone, smart card, Dropbox or what I have it back up to, my Google Drive.

Titanium as Arinoth suggested if you are rooted, MyBackup Pro as well if not.

If you are rooted, you can backup applications as well as contacts, sms, call logs, etc.

I use Samsung Kies.
