A trustworthy data recovery tool for LG data recovery

First of all, you need a powerful data recovery tool that supports recovering data from the latest LG G3, G2 Mini, G2, G Flex, LG G Pad 10.1 and 8.3 as well as LG Optimus series. Here I humbly recommend Android Data Recovery, which supports recovering contacts/call histories/text messages/photos/videos from multiple smart phones and tablets such as Samsung, Sony, HTC, Motorola, etc.

Note: If you want to retrieve other files like documents, audios, emails, apps, archives, etc. or your Android devices can’t be well-connected to PC, you’d better try the Pro version of Android Data Recovery: Android Data Recovery Pro (supports Wi-Fi connection).
