I managed to get my Samsung s5 water damaged. It still turns on, still receives notifications, emits sound, the lock and volume buttons work and the navigation buttons light up, and one half of the touch sensors work (as the phone vibrates when I touch the right half of the screen). However, the screen does not work. I have plugged it into my pc via USB and the pc detects that there is a phone, yet states that there is nothing on it. Because I get notifications I know that the OS and some apps must still be saved on the phone.
My question is: 1. is there a chance my phone can be repaired?
2. if not, would you be able to get any data on the phone off of it? The most important thing for me is that I get my photographs back (I stupidly had not backed them up), so is it possible for you to get data off a broken phone?
