    Re: Samsung Galaxy S6: Back Up & Restore Data

    There are three ways for you to get back your lost data.
    No1:directly retrieve from your iPhone 6 plus.
    No2: retrieve from iTunes.
    No3: retrieve from iCloud.
    And if you haven't backed up your data in iTunes or iCloud, then you will need a data recovery software to help you get back all your lost data. I can recommend iMyfone data recovery software for you.

    As far as I know, a special designed file manager for android app could transfer everything from your phone to computer in few steps, and you don't need to root your phone, just need enable usb debugging on your phone.
