Samsung released Galaxy Note 8 phone with lots of advanced new features in 2017. The giant screen which stretches from edge to edge with barely no bezel on it gives you more viewing space and still fits comfortably in your hands. The invisible home button will appear to you where you need it. It has a support for wireless charging, S pen writing and more.

"I mistakenly deleted my phone logs on my Galaxy Note 8 phone as I was ready to text from call log entry. I was attempting to reach the texting panel but tap the deleted button instead. How do I recover the call logs?".

Call logs are rarely mentioned when we are trying to recover data files on Android device, but they are as important as other data and can help you check who called you and whom you called, associated with dates, meetings and other activities. So when the call history gets lost from your Samsung Galaxy Note 8 phone, you may want to find them back.

The worst thing is that few people would bother or forget to back up their phone records every time they make a call. You never know the importance of the phone logs until it is too late. This is where Android Data Recovery comes in when you are stuck at this situation.
