Titanium Backup is a third party application which is coded by developers for Android. It is the best application out there in the Google Play store for taking backups of your Android mobile phones. 

Titanium Backup is having both free and paid versions. But you will get most of the essential features in the free version itself. You might be thinking why you need Titanium Backup as there are some inbuilt apps which help you to take backup of your android phone.
