"Hello, I would like to recover my data and contacts from my Samsung Galaxy S4 that is the first generation, but, now, the phone screen just is cracked and shows some random colored lines on the major drop. However, I can still tell it works now since there are sounds and the sense touch is still workable. Though I can use my mom's phone, a latter S4 version, instead of this cracked one, I still wonder whether there is any best route for me now to recover data and contacts from this cracked damaged mobile phone. Please help me out. Thank you in advance!"
