Unexpectedly deleting Android videos is a very common phenomenon. It always happens without warning just as the following case:

I have a Samsung Galaxy S6. Over the weekend we took some videos with my phone.

Can I get these deleted videos back? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

This is a typical "recover deleted videos Android" issue. In theory, when the Android videos are deleted, their original spaces are marked as empty, thus any new data can occupy their spaces. However, as long as these original spaces are not damaged or overwritten by new data, you will be able to get these deleted Android videos back with a professional Android data recovery program.
