Editors' Review

+

Dr.Fone by Wondershare is a superb application that makes retrieving missing data a breeze. Anyone can use this program because of its attractive and intuitive, step-by-step guide. Dr.Fone's free trial performance is outstanding, but like all free software, there are the occasional hiccups.

Pros

Great support: Wondershare Dr.Fone provides excellent directions for making the most of the software, including rooting your phone and managing debugging tools. Web site support is clear-cut and easy to follow.

Excellent operation: Although this application took approximately one hour and 20 minutes to retrieve all of our data, it performed better than expected. Thousands of photos, dozens of videos, and hundreds of text messages were found after being previously deleted.

Cons

Misleading, slow setup: The installation wizard encouraged us to download two additional programs but made them out to be part of Wondershare Dr.Fone. We found this to be troublesome, and it complicated the installation process.

Unsupported devices: We originally used an HTC One m8 for our tests, but this device was not recognizable, causing us to test a different device instead. The HTC One m8 is new, so we understand the lack of support, but this is a sign that Dr.Fone is not updated often.

Bottom Line

Wondershare Dr.Fone lives up to its promise and cannot be any easier to understand and operate. The free trial is very powerful and should handle any general issues you may have, but the paid version is still best for those that need to do large recoveries. Download and use Dr.Fone if you need to recover any lost data on your Android phone; and if your device is not supported, we recommend looking into similar applications that may be more up to date.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android 4.3.0.

"Great Tool but needs a Call History recovery"

July 01, 2014  |  By Powellman

 |  Version: Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android 4.3.0

Pros

Great tool, I was able to get all of my lost information from my Android. I just wish they had a call history recovery so that I could get those unsaved numbers as well.

Dr.Fone for Android is portable as well and can be found here:

Cons

needs a Call History recovery

Summary

Thank you so much! I accidentally deleted pictures I took from my Samsung S3 last night and I was so upset because the pictures were of my daughter\'s first wedding dress try on. I prayed that this would work and it did!! It took a long time but I would do it all over again and I would recommend this product to anyone!! Thank you again. I am a very happy mother of the bride.

"Not for me!"

June 05, 2014  |  By MikenCarolyn

 |  Version: Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android 4.3.0

Pros

It did connect and went through all the steps necessary to do a full connection. Got hung up when I had to give it permission on my phone to allow access. It did find my phone compatible, a Samsung S4 GT-I9505, BUT about 80% through the reading it found that my phone was not compatible because I had an android version 4.4.2 (not supported yet)and suggested to re-root the phone. That is my bad for not checking version compatibility.

Cons

The software installs a program on the phone to bypass all security system software (I got warning notice on phone). It would be better to avoid that install to retrieve files.

Summary

Check the phones android version first before install so you don't get that pesky bypass software installed. Above in description it only supports up to 4.3. I would give it better than one star but I can not use it at all to make decision.

"Did not fully work"

April 03, 2014

 |  Version: Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android 4.1

Pros

Worked a little - only recovered some pictures.

Cons

Did not recover any videos.

Summary

I tried like a dozen programs. The only one that worked for my SD Card from my Samsung Galaxy S4 was EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard. All the other fails on the SD Card or failed on the phone itself.
