    I only have 12GB of data on my iPhone and my phone takes about 20 minutes to backup everytime.

    My mate's phone has more data and backs up 10 times faster.

    I deleted all my backups and started again. It's been about 20 minutes so far and only 5% has backed up.

    What could be up?

    Bad cable?
    Slow or bad HD?
    Overly large iTunes library?
    Not enough RAM?
    Faulty iPhone?
    Non-USB 2.0 port?

    No to all.

    Both iPhones backup to the same iTunes on the same Mac.

    Then it's probably a problem with the iPhone, or the data itself. Since that's is (apparently) the only common thread with your troubles.
