get pics from broken phone

the touch screen of my s8 broke and I'm going to buy a new phone instead of repairing it as a screenrepair is way too expensive imo. Is there anyway to get to my old photos and files? It is my phone so I know the passwords and everything but i cant unlock it due to the touch screen being broken. 

 

Thanks in advance,

Fingerprint unlock will still work fine, so plug it in and unlock that way to get your files.

 

Also check what has been backup up by google (of course if you disable this feature it wont help you)

 

As a last resort just take the phone to a local repair center, ask them to get your data off the phone.

Start using Google photos with backup & save everything to an SD card instead in internal storage. 

Doesn't help you here, but hopefully be a lesson for next time. 

Otherwise try logging into the phone using fingerprint then plug into a PC - might be able to access.

I have a back up on google drive but I'm pretty sure it's only call history and settings, also cant acces it on my pc. 

 

I can't get into my phone with fingerprint because it doesn't allow you to do that the first time you power it on :/

 

Any other ways to get my files? Maybe theres a program that allows me to get into the phone with my password when it's connected to my pc? Like I said the problem is the touchscreen not working.

I'm unsure about any PC programs for unlocking it via your PC.

 

But if you have a micro SD card in the phone you could take that out and use your computer to read it and recover some photos/videos.
