It will be a big loss to lose the albums in our Samsung Galaxy S9/S8/S7/S6/S5 so we try in every way to recover deleted pictures from Samsung Galaxy phone. For instance, sometimes when we read an article online or browse a website, we download and save some beautiful illustrations to our phone so as to use them as Wallpaper, social account profile picture, etc. Year in year out, many a little makes a mickle.
