I recently had to replace my phone. I was on a trip abroad, and I accidentally dropped the phone in the water. When I pull the phone out of the water, I noticed the phone was unresponsive. Lucky for me, my phone was still under warranty. So I got a new phone within a week. However I was unable to restore my data, because I was not doing backups on my phone. In other words, I had not enable Android backup. Backups in Android are usually tied to a particular Google account.
