It is estimated that a small minority of smartphone users have backups – and just 8% backup their phones regularly . The CANVIO for Smartphone backs up and charges a connected phone in one single user operation.

Backups are automatically created each time the smartphone connects without the need for user intervention and after activating this function in the Android app.

As well as smartphone charging and backup, the CANVIO for Smartphone allows users to manage data via their phones using the app. At the same time the device can simplify the set-up of new smartphones by providing an easy route to transfer data from an old phone with just a few taps.

For PC users, the CANVIO for Smartphone can still be used as a conventional external hard drive, backing up data via USB Type-A and USB Type-C interfaces. Finally, it can be shared by several devices, enabling multiple users to benefit from data backup and data sharing.

Says Lorenzo Martinez-Palomo, General Manager of Toshiba Electronics Europe GmbH, Personal Storage Division: “Thousands of mobile phones are lost, stolen, dropped and broken every day, yet most users backup the data on their phones infrequently, if ever at all.”
