If you've ever backed up your Android phone to a Google account, then you can get your lost data back by restoring your phone from Google.

Step 4. Tap "Accept and Continue" > "No Thanks" > "Next" > Enter your Google account and tap "Next."

Step 5. Tap "Accept," then you will see the Google services page, check the box as your needs, and tap "Next." 

Step 6. When you come to the "Which device" page, choose the device you want to restore and tap it. Then, choose the app you wish to restore and tap "Restore."
