Most Android phone users don’t think of data loss until it happens to them. It is reported that more than 99% of Android devices are susceptible to data loss.

The reason for data loss on Android can be varied, but the main cause can be file system corruption, virus attack, mistaken human deletion, etc. how would you feel when you suffer this data loss on Android? Worried? Actually you don’t need to be. Note that the files are not permanently erased from your phone.

To improve the possibility of recovering messages, contacts, pictures and videos of Android phones, you should stop taking pictures or recording videos with your phone, or even send messages and make calls, as soon as you notice missing files. Afterwards, use an Android Data Recovery to recover them as soon as possible.

Tenorshare Android Data Recovery VS iCare Data Recovery Free

There are so many data recovery tools for Android you can choose from, even some of them claim they are free. So here I take out 2 typical examples to make a comparison: Tenorshare Android Data Recovery, and iCare Data Recovery Free.

Tenorshare Android Data RecoveryiCare Data Recovery Free
The Good1.       Restore all important files on Android, including contacts, messages, photos, call history, WhatsApp, and etc.

2.       Super easy to use.

3.       No need to wait until the program finished running to see what it’s found.

4.       Sync all the Android files to your computer and back them up locally.

5.       Support Android 1.5-5.0.

1.       Free

2.       Recover lost work files, photos, emails, folders etc.

The Bad1.       Not Free.1.       Free version only recovers 2GB size data.

2.       Can’t preview “large” files but developer doesn’t tell exactly what constitutes “large”.

3.       No way to not show the existing files.

4.       Limited file types to recover.


Advanced users are likely to quickly become disappointed with iCare Data Recovery Free. Apart from the fact that it does not feature any kind of notable configuration settings, it does not show progress statistics (e.g. elapsed time, size of identified files). On top of that, finding specific items within the entire recovered data can rapidly become time-consuming, considering that the app cannot identify the original file names (it assigns numbers to the identified and recovered files instead).

While Tenorshare Android Data Recovery wins more supporters. Although you need to pay for it, you are guaranteed to get back all your lost Android data. You will be impressed by its powerfulness. In additions, owing to the limitation of iCare Data Recovery Free, you will finally have to upgrade to the standard or professional version, which are obviously not free.

Using the Android Data Recovery from Tenorshare is easy. You connect your Android device to computer, enable USB storage and USB debugging on your device. After that the program will start to scan your Android phone. When scan finishes, you can preview and recover files you want.


There is one word to describe how I feel about Tenorshare Android Data Recovery: excellent. You are more than welcome to check out this program if you desire. Click here to free download the trial version.
