Many of us have been through situations like cracked screen, water-damaged, black screen when we use smartphones. My roommate just met one of these situations, water-damaged. The luck thing is that her Samsung phone can’t be power on. But the worst thing is that she was unable to access the data on her Samsung phone, such as contacts, messages and more.
To fix this situation, I suggest her to try the recovery tool called Damaged Samsung Recovery.
As a powerful toolkit for Samsung users to recover deleted and lost data, Damaged Samsung Recovery is capable of recovering contacts, text messages, photos, call history, videos, WhatsApp messages, audio files, and more from your Samsung smartphones and tablets, Damaged Samsung Recovery can also help us to recover these data from broken Samsung phones such as water-damaged phone.
