Part 1: Recover Data if you can still see the display

Sometimes after dropping the phone from height, the display won't be affected. In this case, you can fix this by using a USB OTG (On The Go) and a mouse connected to your device. A USB OTG connects mobile phones to other devices. Basically, your Android has a mini-USB port and you need to connect this to a mouse that has a USB port, which links these two together. Once get connected, you can unlock your device regardless of whether you have a pattern, PIN or password. We recommend using passwords because they are highly secure.
Well, now that your phone is unlocked, you can connect it to your PC and choose to transfer data to your SD card or directly connect it to your PC and transfer the files there.
