Call logs are important on your device, as they provide info on all instances of phone calls made to and from your phone. This data includes the contact's name (or number if they are not saved as a contact in your device), as well as time, date, duration and whether a call was made, missed, or unanswered.

If you wish to backup a log of phone calls made and received on your Android phone, please be aware that your Android phone only stores the last 30 days of call logs. To keep a record of call logs for a longer period, we would recommend doing a backup on a monthly basis.
