Drive [Q] Backing up before flashing a rom using twrp

Hi, i got a note 2 n7100 with dr.ketans custom rom v10, (testing out custom roms atm) but I dont really like it, before I flashed that rom, i was using phoenix v18.8 (didnt like it either) but the annoying thing is, every time I flashed a rom, it removed all data I had and I had to re-add all my contacts , download all my apps again and move all my music/pics/videos back onto my phone , which Im really getting tired of..

Now im downloading Ditto Note 3 custom rom but this time I want to make sure I dont have togo through all the trouble again so, how exactly do I back up all my data ( EXCEPT MY CURRENT ROM ) so that once ive flashed the rom I can restore all my things?

Can I do it with titanium back up or twrp? (how exactly and which is easier)

Your contacts are/should be backed up by your Google account. When you use your Gmail address during setup it will sync your contacts for you.

For MMS/SMS there is SMS Backup from playstore.

For apps/app data there is Titanium Backup Pro.

For photo/video you can back them up via Google Photo. You can also put them on external SD and they will not be wiped.
