Here my recommendation is a data eraser named Android Data Eraser, which can erase all Android data including contacts, messages, call history, apps, system setting, photo, video, etc. Indeed, Android Data Eraser worth trusting and it makes the work more effective. What you need is a windows computer. One single click and data deletion finish.

easy to follow instructions but does not work have done it 3 times now and get to a step which requires to do a factory reset. Phone the automatically switches off and loses connection with program and have to start all over again. Goes round in circles with a factory reset the only result - and you can do that without downloading the program.

Deleted data from samsung phone are recoverable with Coolmuster Samsung Recovery software. But you need to follow special steps as droid phone`s memory is not accessible easily.
