Since there is no root available so best bet is Helium. I have 50-50 success/failure rate as of now on G5. I was able to successfully restore app data from Helium backup the first time but second time even though Helium said data restored but it was not.

Your Google account will backup your apps (from play store) and your settings automatically and offer a restore once you do a fresh boot, and go through Google's wizard to setup the phone.

If the app supports it, the app's configuration (example your user account) will be restored as well.
