Are they on an SD card in the phone? If so, can pull that SD card and access the files directly if you also have a media reader on your computer.
My phone which gave great service for 3 years suddenly gets very hot and the screen turns on and off. It is the LG G3 phone with a great display and large screen. Nobody wants to repair it and says the motherboard must be replaced. I have over 5,000 stored photos and was told that if repaired, all data would be deleted. Is it worth repairing? How long does the average cellphone last?
