If your device has an unlocked bootloader and clockwork mod recovery or twrp is on there yes.
As stock it seems like there is too if on ICS and above, never tried this though.

Samsung phones can apparently do it using kies as well but from kies popularity on here I don't think I'd recommend that..

If rooted, you can use Titanium back-up to back up pretty much everything. In case sh*t goes wrong, save back-up folder to memory card and/or your PC. Phone croaks? Do factory reset. Reinstall Titanium, find the old back-up file on your SD card, and restore. THAT IS if you find the solution mentioned by pondlife too weird :p

Flash custom recovery, perform back-up, store entire back-up of OS, data and kernel on your computer as a handy zip file, restore back-up from recovery at any time.

I do a combination of the Custom recovery backup & Titanium. Allows me to pick and choose the best depending if I'm playing or properly upgrading/updating and if my update needs a 'superwipe' (full everything format except for the SD card itself)
Also chuckling at the suggestion of Kies. :)

Think it stops short of a suggestion..

Somehow, I think Kies had little to nothing to do with that :p.
