Find Out 2 Methods To Recover Inaccessible Data From Broken Vivo Phone!

Just image a situation below.

Screen broken, want the data!

So the screen off my Vivo V15 just broke. It’s cracked and it doesn’t display anything. I want the photos and videos back. Is there any way I can get it to properly connect to my computer as I now can’t change ‘usb for charging’ to ‘usb for file transfer’ which I used to be able to do.

I know there are other threads on this forum about this problem, I tried the things they said but it didn’t work for me. Might be because those threads weren’t for the Vivo V15.

Any help would be appreciated!

Forgot to mention that the notification LED is still working so I do know when the phone is powered on or off.”
