We've got two phones here with their screens smashed to bits, but that's the only thing wrong with them. The cost of either replacing the screen or getting the data retrieved (I forget which) is about fifty quid so we'd rather not.

All we want is to retrieve the data from them; there are irreplaceable family pictures and work stuff on both.
I think they're both samsungs. Is there a cheaper way of doing it? We have the PINs, is there some software we can plug them into maybe, emulate their screens on a monitor or some other way to get the information out?

Can't you just connect them to a computer with a USB?

Yes, but you can't unlock them because the screens are broken.

Why would you need to unlock them? You should be able to do what you need on the computer.

Because you can't do that if they're locked.

I've not used an android phone for a minute, but you used to be able to access the phones memory straight from the PC. Maybe you need to accept the connection first, and that's why you're struggling.

Certainly with itunes you can back an iphone up without unlocking it, so maybe Samsung has a similar desktop app you can use to rip all the files.

Something called Scrcpy (https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/mirror-android-screen-pc-mac-without-root/) sounds like it's what you need, but you first need to enable USB debugging mode on the phone, which you presumably won't have done already.

Buy an identical model and swap the boards. There will definitely be a guide on that Youtube for how to competently get the things apart.

Okay, I guess it can't be done without spending money then. Thanks.

If you're handy with a screwdriver, you could replace the screen yourself. Screens for older phones are usually cheap as chips on eBay.

Amazon too - most screens are about ten quid now for old phones; you just need the right screwdrivers and a couple of hours on iFixit.

Was expecting the cost of the screen + the right screwdriver to come to more than just paying to get it done but I'll look into it.

Putting pones back together (nicely) is the hard bit a lot of the time, If you don't need to do that, and you don't care about knackering the old screen as you take things apart, it's about as easy as it gets. Watch youtube videos.
I've done a few now, with good results. Amazon/ebay screens aren't always defect free, but again, you don't care.

The cheap chinesium "open all" screw driver kits also help, you should be able to get one for a few quid. Do not abuse them, they work just fine for the inside a mobile phone but won't screw your door hinges back on without disintegrating. A decent spudger also helps, if you have access to the metal banding used in packing a 2" section with tape around one side works wonders.
