Backup and Restore Samsung Galaxy S3
Hey everyone, I got my Samsung galaxy s3 a few days ago and I made a mistake, I downloaded GO launcher and my phone started working not as good and as smooth as it did at the beginning, so I deleted it and now I feel my phone isn't working as well as it did, so I would like to backup all the info, reset the phone and then restore all the info back. Do you think I should do it (if the answer is yes, please tell me how to do it)?
