Backing up files on an android phone is ridiculously simple, you just copy paste stuff onto your computer's hard drive as you would a flash drive (without having to 'jailbreak'), or use a cloud storage service if you must. If backing up local app settings is incredibly important, you can use Titanium Backup or something like it.
I've used the same mirco sd card in two different phones since 2011 without any data loss. Whatever happened to Lebron James sounds like massive user error. As far as I know, iPhones don't have sd cards (or even removable batteries), limiting them to their phone's storage and backups via iTunes/iCloud. This doesn't make any sense to me considering the large file size of pictures and the slow speed of backing up files compared to that of swapping out sd cards.
Backing up with an iOS device is ridiculously simpler.. you just have it synched automatically thru iCloud or plug it in and use iTunes with just one touch of a button ( and that is if auto-sync is not enabled)
we don't need sd cards as photos taken by the Camera app is populated into our Photo Stream and is accessible thru other iOS or Mac OS devices and it does not consume our time swapping out cards.
with limited knowledge on iOS devices, it is best for you not to comment on something you don't actually know..
