"Yesterday, my Samsung S6 was dropped to the ground and the screen was totally cracked. Comparing to repair it, I think it better to buy a new one since I have used this phone for a long time. But now my problem is: There are many important data on my S7, especially my contacts. I need to extract and import them to my new mobile phone. Any good advice on how to recover contacts from Broken Android phone?"
As we all know, contacts are saved in the internal memory of Android phone, which makes it more difficult to extract them from the broken one. But attention please, it does not mean impossible. Here we are going to show you two ways to recover your contacts from a broken Android phone. Please take a moment to have a check.
If you have all your contacts stored in your SIM card, you can directly extract them from the broken phone and then export to the new phone. The steps are as below:
