By Emily Watson, Monday, Sept. 14, 2015

Sometimes photos in our Android phone lose mysteriously, without any reason. Below is an according situation:

"I bought the Samsung Galaxy S6 on Friday and then took about 50+ pictures. 2 days later I went into my gallery and all the images were gone. I still have an Instagram, screenshot, Picasa, Google+ folders but the gallery has nothing. I restarted my phone and went into Gallery again. I checked "my files" app under camera and no luck. There is no way I deleted these pictures intentionally, but if there is any way to retrieve them, please send help!"
