“HELP! I'm so frustrated right now. Some of my apps weren't working (ten seconds after I would click to open them they would show me the loading page and then go back to the home screen, some right after I downloaded them, and some after some uses). After reading a million threads on Androidforum and trying everything, I decided factory reset my phone. I backed up my information and did a factory reset, however, when I restored it I realized the photos hadn't been backed up. The photos are very important to me, is there anyone can help me to recover photos after factory reset? Thank you in advanced!”
