This powerful application can recover data from Android devices of any type, model and manufacturer, be those tablets or smart phones, produced by Samsung, Motorola, Alcatel, HTC, LG, or any other company.

Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android is a comprehensive and reliable application that can recover any kind of data from Android devices. It can restore files like videos, music, images or documents, regardless of why they have been lost in the first place: accidental deletion, virus attack, ROM flashing, etc. This effective tool can also retrieve lost SMS text messages and contacts’ details. Previewing the recoverable contacts, messages, photos and documents before the actual recovery is also possible.

This handy application can also be used simply to back up the entire data from the Android devices to the computer or to various other locations, as it can easily export the contacts to HTML, vCard and CSV files and the messages to HTML and XML files.

Even though it comes packed with plenty of features, options and functions, using this tool is not difficult at all. Its interface is intuitive, straightforward and self-explanatory, allowing even beginners to use this neat tool without any problem.

Its only downsides are the fact that it takes quite a while to scan Android devices for the recoverable data. Besides a rather low scanning speed, I was also a bit disappointed to notice that you can’t actually recover any file using the unregistered version of this tool. With the trial version you can only preview the files which have been detected and can be recovered. I think that recovering a limited number of files, or restriction on the file size to be restored, would have been a better choice for licensing restriction, as it would allow a more proper evaluation of the application before deciding to purchase it. Anyway, Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android is a feature-rich and easy-to-use tool that looks like a decent solution for whenever you need to recover data from Android devices.
