For this review, I used Motorola Nexus 6, which I have to root.

How to Recover deleted files on android

As rooting a device does not happen to me for every review, I have to read a lot before going through the procedure. Well, the instructions are actually quite simple. Install the software and next is to enter the license code Wondershare has given me. Setting it all up is really trouble-free.

Next step I had to enable developer options. Gone through my settings and clicked About Phone, Build number (tap it 7 times), and then enable USB debugging. My Nexus was already connected to my Mac and so the software connected and started to scan my android phone. You can choose which files would you like to be recovered. In my case, I choose all (insert smiley face) and the software started to scan my Nexus 6. Generally, the more files you want to recover the longer it will take for the software to do the job, of course. So have plenty of patience when recovering lots and lots of files. I opted to do it ALL to try if Dr. Fone really works.

+ Pros of Dr, Fone data recovery app

  • Recover photos, videos, documents and messages.
  • Retrieve deleted contacts
  • Enables user to preview all recoverable files before recovery
  • Allows user to select files to recover by selecting them from the scan result.
  • Supports photo formats JPG, PNG, BMP, GIF, TIF, TIFF and most video formats.

– Cons of Dr, Fone data recovery app

  • Slow to recover files.
  • Some files are damaged after recovery
  • Device must be rooted for the software to do its job, as clearly emphasized in the description and on their website. It won’t work relying solely on your smartphone.


My experience using Dr Fone does not come out without a flaw. The first time I rooted my smartphone, it worked smoothly though it took more than an hour to recover files. I find it reasonable because of the large volume of files that i choose to be recovered. Other than the slow speed for a large quantity of files, it works perfectly fine.

You have to pay $9.99 to unlock SMS recovery service and $10.13 for Contacts recovery, which I think is overly priced. Unless you will use it for legal purposes then you’re in. Otherwise it is overrated.


This kind of software works great for recovering files whether it be personal or for business. You might say “Nah, I’m careful, I keep backups.” But accidents do happen when you least expect it. So I’d say better to be on the safe side than regret it later. You can purchase a lifetime license for 1-5 devices and a Mac for as low as $59.95. Price vary depending on your needs and the number of devices and the products comes with a 30-day money back guarantee. Live chat is also available to support and answer you on your queries about the product.
