Data can be lost from an Android device because of a wide variety of reasons, including accidental deletion, system crash, virus attack, ROM flashing, and so on. No matter the reason, unwanted data loss is always a serious issue that can cause you quite a headache. The good news is that solutions for such situations still exist. The most convenient type of data recovery solution is resorting to specialized applications, such as the Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android tool.

Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android can scan for lost data, and retrieve the found lost data, from any type of Android device, may it be a smartphone or a tablet, and also regardless of the model, manufacturer, and used Android version. Last but not least, it can recover any kind of files, may they be videos, music, photos, documents, and it can also recover data like SMS text messages and contacts’ details.

Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android is also easy to use. Its interface is neat and intuitive, allowing even complete beginners to use this app without any problem. This handy tool also comes with nice additional features such as the possibility to preview data before the actual recovery, or the possibility to export the contacts to HTML, vCard and CSV files and the messages to HTML and XML files.

The only disadvantage of this tool remains (it was noticed when reviewing its previous versions): the low scanning speed. Scanning larger storage devices for recoverable files will still most likely take a lot of minutes. Furthermore, with the trial version you can only preview the recoverable files, but not actually restore any file. The full version of the program is required for files recovery.

Anyway, Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android still comes with a lot of benefits and represents a noteworthy solution for whenever you need to recover data from Android devices.
