Simple questions. T-Mobile only had the 16 GB version. So that's what I got. One back up cost me two gigs. Is it safe to store these on Google drive. If a bootloop happened. I could just push it over from my computer right? Is there a worst case scenario that would need it stored on the device?

I push mine to my NAS for the same reasons. Just means no flashing on the bus to work.

Yeah you can push the backup to your device. You should use twrp or philz recovery though, not traditional cwm as cwm stores the backups in the wrong place.

You can even restore from otg
