For doing this we have a wonderful app called – GO Backup helps you take a full backup of your device and restore it according to your wish.

To create a backup, tap on the New Backup button on the app’s home-screen.
The app will then ask you to check up all things that you want to backup, but its recommended to go with Full Backup. Once you have decided, tap on the Start Backup Button.
The app will then take up the backup of your device and it will be stored on your phone’s SD card. It is recommended to keep a copy of it on your computer, you can mount the SD card on your computer and can copy the backup from /sdcard/GoBackup/AllBackup to your computer.
When you need to restore the backup, make sure the backup file is saved in the correct path and then click on the Restore button. If you have made more than one backup, then select up the backup that you want to restore, also if you don’t wanna restore any component just uncheck it and then click on the Restore button. For non-rooted users you’ll have to press the install button to restore every single app while rooted user can just enjoy by doing up batch operations.
