    Android dvd recovery software offers us the easy way to Restore Contacts and Media Files from Samsung Galaxy J3 without backup. You just need to connect it to computer via usb cable. A short time scanning later, the contacts and media files will be listed on program window. Just preview and choose them to recover.
