    My GS4 is less than a month old and doing weird things like one way speaker phone (I can only hear myself talk, I can't hear person on other line). BestBuy geek told me to do factory reset. My question is, if I backup using Kies, do I still have to "backup data and wi-fi passwords and other settings to Google server" before I do factory data reset or is Kies adequate? I kind of don't like my passwords on a cloud somewhere.
    Thanks!

    Welcome. I'm sorry nobody has posted a response yet.

    According to What can I backup and recover from my device using Kies? : Cell Phones | Samsung :
    Preferences probably includes wifi passwords. That may suffice if that list includes everything you care about.

    However, since you're planning on a factory reset to fix something I don't recommend restoring your settings (including wifi passwords); the most important thing a factory reset does is discard all of your settings.
