If the phone is dead and won't turn on at all, unless the images are on a SD card or were synced to a Google account, I don't think that you can get them off of it.

You can try connecting that phone to a computer via a USB cord and see if the computer registers it being there, but in most cases it won't. Can't hurt to try though. If by some wild chance it does show the device, then access it like you would any other folder on the computer or connected device and move all your stuff over to a folder on the computer. You can then copy it all over to the new phone by connecting the new phone to the computer via USB cord.

Depends on how old the phone is....the older models register once you plug it in to your PC. The newer models however, do not. Well, they do but the computer will read it as empty or containing no files. This is because if your screen were working on the phone, you would see the option it displays when plugged into the PC asking if you want to allow it to transfer pics off of the phone. When the screen is jammed up, there is no way. THE GOOD NEWS IS...… in the past this happened to both of my iphones, after being completely torn up about losing my pics I gave up and stuck my old phones in the closet. When the same thing happened to my Droid Turbo2, I did not have insurance on it and waited out the two months for my contract to be up and just started over with a new phone. Over the course of these 2 months I would randomly turn it on and see if it were working,, which of course it was not. Got the new phone, moving along and then 5-6 months later my daughter asks for a phone. Thinking maybe I could clear up whatever virus was on my phone by wiping it all out and activating it for her - it fricking turned on and worked like nothing ever happened!! All of my text messages, photos, videos, contact list, EVERYTHING was there and it has worked fine ever since. Don't throw your phone......store it somewhere and be sure you keep a charger with it because by the time you test it again the chargers will have changed again, and then come Spring charge the phone up and turn it on. It's crazy! Also....stop watching porn on your phone, that's most of the problem and where the virus is coming from.
