Hi, my galaxy s3 just turned off and wouldn't go back on. It wasn't the battery cause I tried so I ended up buying the S5. I have my contacts on my phone but no photos. Is there anyway to retrieve them with my Google account? I did a backup on my s3 the day before and it went onto cloud I believe so I was wondering if I could get it back somehow on my new one since my other one doesn't turn on at all.

If yo ubacked up your photos to the cloud, do you remember what cloud? Are we talking Google Drive? If thats the case you could navigate to Google Drive and just download them all into your phone but that will use up space on your phone!

You may be better off to leave your phone empty and setup a new sync relationship to google drive with your new S5. That way all your old pictures are there and all your new pictures WILL be there.

Your Choice of course.

If they're not sync'd with Google Drive try Picasso I know one of my Android devices (I think Samsung) automatically saved my photos to Picasso before
