  1. Nice, Wondershare is a professional recovery which is easy to use. And also the FonePaw Android Data Recovery is the same as Wondershare. It’s a nice experience that I deleted my photos by accident. A friend who is pro in smartphone told me can use the FonePaw Android Data Recovery or the Wondershare to recover deleted photo on my Samsung Galaxy S6. So I randomly use the FonePaw. Magically, I can even see the video which I deleted weeks ago.
