Hi @satinshadows ,

Just clarifying when you say that the screen has been smashed.

Can you still see the images on the screen but cannot navigate because the touch is broken or are there no images at all when you turn on the phone?

If you can see images on the screen then try connecting a USB mouse via an OTG (on the go) adapter and use the mouse to navigate through the screens to allow you to connect the phone to a computer.

If you need a pin number to enter the phone then connect a USB keyboard first (via OTG) and key in the pin number then swap over to a mouse to navigate (be aware that not all keyboards will work in this manner -don't know why). If you have a pattern lock on the phone then you're out of luck.

If the screen is smashed and doesn't show anything at all then commiserations

If the screen is completely destroyed and the computer wont recognize the phone as an usb device, its gone. The only thing that you can do if you really need to get the data out of it is to replace the screen.
