How to Recover Data from Android Phone with Broken Screen

Author:Jake | TIME:October 09,2017


Smartphones are powerful but they are fragile. The phone screen can be easily broken if you drop it onto the ground; it may get cracked if it is hit by a hard object. I myself have brought my Samsung Galaxy S7 to the repair store twice since I bought it last year. You cannot get inside to access data because the broken phone screen is not responsive and you are not able to see anything but a cracked black screen.

 

You may be lucky if it still can be repaired; but if it is severely damaged, it may not work any more. That sounds sad but it happens. And when it turns out to be the latter case, you will need to abandon your device and buy another one. What about the data on the broken phone? You must want to get them back. And this article will show you how to recover data from Android phone with broken screen.
