In spite of its massive networking and telecommunications business, and the millions of phones it sells in its native China, Huawei has remained an underdog in other smartphone markets. The P20 Pro changes that. This phone is as powerful, refined, fast, stylish, and desirable as anything we’ve seen from Samsung, LG, and HTC at their best.
However, no matter how edge-cutting an Android device is, data loss issue is somehow inevitable on every cell phone. Back up your files easily, meaning you'll never lose your data again. That's why you really should back up your HUAWEI P20 or P20 Pro rather than get regretful after you lost something important. Here may I introduce two methods to fully back up your HUAWEI phone. Let's not beat around the bush and right cut to the chase.
Frist, you need to install the free Samsung Manager program on your computer. Connect your Huawei P20/P20 Pro with computer via USB cable. If it is your first time connecting the phone to your PC, the program would install USB drivers for the Huawei P20/P20 Pro on your PC automatically, and don't forget to enable the USB debugging mode.
Once your device is recognized by Syncios program, you can see a list on the left panel which contains: Apps, Contacts, SMS, Media(Audio + Video) and Photos.
