Hello, I need help. My phone (Samsung Galaxy S5) has suffered physical damage and it will no longer turn on. I found the data is still alive in there and that it can be extracted using external means. Is there a way to recover deleted contacts and messages given these circumstances?

The only thing you could try is connecting the phone to a PC where Kies is installed. If the phone's display is cracked, then you can attempt to recover the data because it's possible the phone might still boot properly.

Install Kies, then attach the phone and watch to see if it detects it. This is actually the only thing you can try. For other advanced operations, you need to visit a local phone service shop to connect the phone to a hardware box that is capable of accessing data from memory chips.

Have you sync your contacts with Samsung Kies? You can backup and restore contacts with Kies. For messages, I advise you to download a professional Android sms recovery tool.
