You can use a data backup assistant to back up xiaomi, and I think most android phones can be used.
If you want to recover the lost data, an android file recovery program is necessary.

Nothing could be simpler than this. You simply need to run backup app and back up all the application you need to back up. If you are facing any issue inspite of the simple guidance, visit a nearby Mi Service Centre in Mumbai and tell them your query.

Yes, the built-in backup function on Xiaomi is good enough. The only problem is that the location of backups is hard to find, while my phone doesn't support SD card so that I have to move the backups to PC before factory reset. The path is usually MIUI> backup> AllBackup. Here is the article helped me find Xiaomi backup folder.
