The screen on my Samsung Note 4 cracked. Unfortunately, I did not back up the data in internal memory before that happened. Although the phone works, I have no way to access my data since I don't have a screen.

I am trying to determine what the best path forward is for recovering my data. These are the options I have identified as of the the moment.

  • I have an extra note 4 lying around and thought it might be possible to try and switch the screens, but I am not sure if that is easily doable.
  • Have a professional recover the data for me.

If anyone knows of other options then please let me know. For example, if there is a way to access the contents of the phone without a screen that would be really helpful.

Which is the best path forward? Should I just bite the bullet and pay for recovery services?
