Best Way! How to Recover Whatsapp from Broken Android in 2020

By Vernon Roderick, Last updated: April 25, 2021

Is there a way of how to recover WhatsApp from broken Android phones?

"Oh, my gosh... my Android phone is busted as anything. It was just another day and I was just going about my daily day, I was waiting for the elevator to go home from work and as always I was just checking out something on my phone.

When all of a sudden I tripped on the sliding metal part of the elevator, my phone fell to the ground due to the sudden jerk of my entire body. You could see the collective groan of all the people in the elevator when it slammed on the floor.

I was hoping that it sounded worse than it actually was, but as soon as I picked up my phone with a blank screen which only flickered on and off from one moment to another, I knew I was going to be in for it. I know I can have this repaired and I know I can even just change it, but what about all the information I have on my broken phone? I can't just abandon all those photos, text messages, contacts and so much more.

That's just asking me to pretty much wipe out a few years of memory on my phone and I just can't stomach that. Please tell me there's a way to get back the information before I change or have this repaired. Please, please, please!"

Part 1. Why We Still Use Our Broken Android Phone?

A broken Android phone is no laughing matter. Sure the damage can really differ depending on what happened to it and most of us have a fairly functional phone that works just as well as a brand new one, save for some knicks and bruises here and there.

On the other hand, there are others who can't change his or her mobile phone just yet and continues to 'use' his or her busted Android phone.

At some point or another, you must know someone who would continuously use a phone that has a cracked screen or couldn't properly use the touch function on his or her phone.

They either insist that the phone is still as good as it was when it was brand new or that an upgrade is either on the way or they are waiting for a newer model to come out, whatever their reason is, it is likely that they are struggling to use the phone because of the information that is still within their unit.

Nowadays, a mobile phone is an extension of who we are as a social person, it allows us to not only stay connected to our friends and family using text messages and calls, but we now have access to the internet on a 24/7 basis that has opened a world of communication to us.

Given how often we depend on our phones to stay in touch, we are always unnerved when we are suddenly without our phones and damaged, broken phones can really disarm you as quickly as you can pull a phone out of your pocket.While a broken phone can really ruin your day, it isn't the end of your mobile phone usage.

With how many mobile phones are available on the market today, getting a replacement is fairly easy but what isn't easy to replace is the information in each mobile phone. A lot of us tend to forget and ignore backups and even when we do the backup, it could be that the information is still outdated and hasn't been overwritten in a hile. When we meet an unfortunate accident that leads to a busted phone, we need a solution as quickly as our phones found their way with a broken screen or such.
