    So my phone apparently has had water damage so now it's touchscreen doesn't work.
    Everything else seems to work though.
    So I decided to buy a new phone, a similar one (Meizu M6 Note), because it was just on sale over Black Friday.

    Because my touchscreen couldn't I couldn't transfer the files from my old phone to the new one (those who weren't backed-up one the cloud).
    I tried connecting it with a USB to try and transfer the files to my computer, but I can't transfer any files via a USB connection without a permission from my phone, which, from my understanding I need to use the touchscreen to do that.

    Any ideas?

    The only other idea I have is to use the fact that the new phone I bought is of the same model to maybe replace the hard-drive of my new phone with the old one, but I don't know if it's practical.

    If your phone have OTG working, you could try to use an USB mouse.

    Swapping drives only works with PCs and such. No such luck with android
