  • Not sure about pics unless it was cloud backed up, but contacts Google back it up automatically in your new phone/ browser log in with same account – Mightian Jul 12 '15 at 21:13

Yes, there is a way to recover both if your Android phone was synced to your Google account. All you have to do is just sign-in on a new Android phone and all of your data should be redownloaded.

In order to see if your photos were backed up, just go to Google Photos and you can view your photos there.
