Sony smartphone series, including Sony Xperia XA Ultra/XZ1/XZ Premium/XZ1 Compact/Z5/Z3/Z2/T3/M2/Z1 and Sony Tablet Xperia Z3 Tablet/Z2 Tablet, occupies a big share in the Android market. It is hugely welcomed by those who prefer high-end mobile camera because they can shoot beautiful photos with the easy-to-carry Sony mobile phone. However there are some problems when you operate the camera, for example, improper settings that lead to loss of pictures. In this case, how can you recover images from Sony smartphone? The first-rate important thing is to stop using your phone once loss of data happens in case of data overwriting. And then try a reliable recovery program as soon as possible.
