Most Android users actually use SD cards which you can remove from your phone at any time and then also connect to your computer. However, if you don’t have an SD card and you only have data stored on your phone, it will be a bit harder to get to it.

If you have a Google account and have backed up your phone to it. Then you can also access the data that was backed up through that account. However, you have to log into the account and find the backed up devices, which is where your old phone should be if it had automatic backup turned on.

However, if your phone is somehow still working and you can connect it to your computer. Then there are many different apps that could help you. Most of the time these apps are paid and will only tell you after you install everything, so read how the app really works first.

However, if you can somehow unlock your phone, it should connect to your computer on its own, and if you have sharing enabled, you should also see a folder with your data.

However, if you have an SD card attached, then most of your data should be stored on it. You can simply connect it via a card reader to your computer, or via another phone to which the SD card can be connected.

This is because the SD card is easily removable and easy to read data from unless it is somehow encrypted or corrupted. And that’s also one of the biggest advantages if we’re looking at Android versus Apple.

Because you can’t put SD cards in any iPhone and so you can’t increase the capacity. But then it’s also very hard to get any data off the iPhone at all since everything there only downloads to iCloud, so you always have to back up your phone via your computer.

Many times even if the SD card is damaged you can get some data off it, but usually not all of it. It also depends on how damaged it is.But you should get all your data from Android, and it’s a lot easier than from any iPhone.
