How to Restore Lost Contacts from HUAWEI P8

-- Tuesday, October 27, 2015
"I have been enjoying the time with HUAWEI P8, the company's best flagship. The phone is great for calls. Contacts are well-organized in the phone book. So I don't need to turn page back and forth for phone numbers in a pad memo or notebook. However one thing I worry about is data loss issue. With a tab on a wrong button or something else, I would lose all the contacts. What could I do then? The manual doesn't teach me to restore lost contacts from HUAWEI P8," said Lee, a long-term user of HUAWEI.

Precaution can be a backup. But if contact loss occurs before that, turn to Android Data Recovery, a useful program that can bring back your lost phone book.

Android Data Recovery offers the easiest and fastest way to get lost data back. Your deleted phone book, which contains contact's name, phone numbers, email address, company, job title etc, can be restored just with some simple steps. Address book restored is exported as VCF/CSV/HTML formats in your computer. Below are detailed steps on recovery.

After previewing, highlight items one by one and click the button "Recover" to bring the lost files back.

Recover Contacts from HUAWEI P8

Now, lost contacts in HUAWEI P8/P9, HUAWEI Honor 5X, etc. are back to your computer. With the latest version of Android Data Recovery, you can directly scan and regain any data (photos, music, and videos for example) from an external SD card. Even though the software can help you restore the lost data, it is also necessary for you to back up data from your HUAWEI regularly.
