    Help Knackered S6, can I retrieve data?

    Hi, My S6 has given up the ghost. I dropped it and now the LCD panel has packed up, so I can t get it to work at all.
    I have a lot of stuff on it like photos etc. Is there a way to retrieve the data, as my PC cant access it now.
    Just says no photos available.

    Any help appreciated

    Cheers Plug, been looking at the costs involved, new screen seems to be running out at £150ish
    Is this about right? Just wondering if its worth doing, retrieving data and then selling, as I'm due an upgrade anyway.

    Yes or £100 from Aliexpress and a 2 week wait. I have had one off ali in the past to repair a friends and it was a genuine Amoled screen. Probably cheaper than paying a phone shop to retrieve your data.

    Thanks to piggzy
