Most users aren't exposed to the complexity inside a smart phone. When 
you go about encrypting your backups you are exposing yourself directly 
to the added complexity of encrypting, verifying and restoring your backups.

Physical security comes first. Encryption is no substitute for physical 
access controls. If you refuse to maintain physical control over your 
data and equipment then you deserve what happens to it. I have no 
sympathy when it does. I laugh and I point and I say "I told you so".
