Yes, you are able to backup your iPhone files with both iCloud and iTunes application, but there are some differences between this two applications. With iCloud you are able to make backups no matter where you are because this service makes online backups, unlike iTunes that works only on your computer. But, no matter what you use, both of them are reliable and simple to use.

Actually, you can use a third-party data backup tool to backup the data from your iphone.

The text messages, contacts, photos all can be viewed on pc, and you can selectively back up them to pc.
