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.

"Absolutely worthless"

January 07, 2016  |  By HanrichZeelie

2016-01-07 03:28:12  |  By HanrichZeelie

 |  Version: Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android 5.6.3

Pros

There are no pros to this program.

Cons

Deceitful. Wastes all your time looking for data but is then unable to recover it. Program suddenly stops working at random moments, even when the (worthless) scan is at 99 percent done.

Summary

Try something else.

"worthless can't recover most recent photos"

March 15, 2015

2015-03-15 18:59:14

 |  Version: Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android 4.8.1

Pros

great if you just want to find a very small, random sample of photos deleted from your phone over the past 6 months

Cons

worthless if you're looking for all of the photos you just accidentally deleted from your phone a few minutes ago

Summary

I just deleted a bunch of photos from my phone, mistakenly believing they had been saved to my computer. Tried to use this software to recover them. Doesn't find a single one although it does find a small random assortment of photos deleted from my phone over the past few months? doesn't effectively do the exact thing it says it does.

Pros

Good for making your computer run slow, and raise your blood-pressure.

"Just a crap!!"

January 13, 2015  |  By AJMSTECH

2015-01-13 22:18:46  |  By AJMSTECH

 |  Version: Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android 4.8.1

Pros

Nothing. It just waste of time and money

Cons

Everything. From interface to performance.

Summary

This is not the program what I'm thinking. Just a crap and waste of time. Desktop recovery programs like Stellar Phoenix Photo Recovery software does much better job and even recover files from internal or external location of your digital camera, smartphone and other handheld devices.



I've found a great tutorial where you can learn more about the program:

2015-01-07 17:59:36  |  By TongDoug

 |  Version: Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android 4.8.1

Pros

Best software for android recovery. Thanks

Cons

If only they had a call history recovery

Summary

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.

"It worked!"

January 07, 2015  |  By wangglei

2015-01-07 00:14:49  |  By wangglei

 |  Version: Wondershare Dr.Fone for Android 4.8.1

Pros

It\'s exactly what I need. You saved my data and solved my problem... Great!

Cons

Would be great if it worked like the Apple iOS version and separated the picture messages images into its own slot, making it easier to recover all images.

Summary

Thank you so much! I accidentally deleted pictures I took from my Samsung S3 last night and I was so upset. 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.
