Before starting, I want to share some prerequisites. The moment you realize you have deleted any files, messages, photos accidently, stop using your phone.

Also, make sure your phone is charged up to 20% when you start the recovery process.

From my experience, I can say that software is very easy to use. Each of us can follow the instructions shown on the screen and get our lost data back. The best part of this android data recovery is the preview and selective recovery functionality. Firstly, you can select whether you want to recover photos, WhatsApp messages & attachments, audio, documents, and videos. In short, you can cherry pick the files you want to recover. As it might be possible that all the files you have deleted so far are not that important to you or you don’t want to recover all of them. Hence, with preview feature, you can see a list of photos, text messages, videos you are about to recover. After recovery is completed, you can find all your data under one folder in your PC. You can select the folder of your choice to store recovered data.
Here, your device is rooted during recovery process but there’s no risk of voiding the warranty of the device. Once the recovery is completed, again your device will be unrooted.
Another good thing is it supports all latest Android versions. I tried it on Android 6.0.1 and it worked pretty well. It also supports multiple languages like English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish.
The only downside is it took around 25-30 minutes to scan the deleted files. So overall it took around 60 minutes to recover data completely. Also, some of the images it was able to recover bits and pieces of the deleted data. But this doesn’t happen for all and not always. Moreover, its Android broken data recovery is only supported for Samsung devices. I can’t say it’s a downside of software. Hoping soon it will be available for Android too. Hence, all of those who wants to buy this to recover data from their damaged phone (black screen, broken screen or non-responsive screen), make sure your phone is of Samsung.
All in all, it is a good pick for data recovery. For Windows users, lifetime license of “Android data recovery” will cost $49.95 and you can use it for 5 Android devices and install it on one PC. If you want to use it for more devices, you can customize it too. For MAC users, it costs $59.95 for a lifetime for 5 devices and 1 MAC.
