I recently dropped my phone in water, it worked okay for a few minutes after and then the screen started flickering and then it went black.
I tried leaving the phone under the sun and in rice but none seemed to work, searched on Google found that when Huawei phones are dropped in water they seem to experience what they described as: "the black screen of death" which can only be fixed by replacing the screen. The phone otherwise seems to work perfectly, it vibrates, receives notifications, connects and displays to the computer.
The thing is there is some very important data on that phone that I don't want to lose, since I can't use the touchscreen or see what's on the screen to unlock the phone and enable USB transfer I went and googled: "how to extract data from a locked phone", however unfortunately all software solutions were only for samsung devices, so I am kinda lost.
I know the password and the gmail account credentials linked to the phone, it's just that I cannot use them, any ideas?
I tried to get it a phone repair shop, but they wanted to charge me over 200€ and they weren't even sure if it was gonna be successful, so I can't do that.
The data I need to recover is mostly pics and vids.
Thanks in advance :)
Edit: My phone has a USB-C port
