    Samsung Galaxy S6

    I recently dropped my phone in water and the phone didn't want to work until later in the afternoon. Worked fine after I pressed Volume down and power button for a while to restart. However, after turning the screen off it became unresponsive to touch. I can power the phone on but I cant swipe to unlock the screen. I can get to the home screen by double tapping the home button to get to the camera and then home button once more. All I want to do is get my all the pictures and videos of my 5 month old dog because I plan to upgrade my phone soon.

    TL;DR

    Is there any way to transfer the pictures and videos to my PC if the screen is unresponsive to touch but visually working?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    P.S. - Tried to use Smart Switch and SideSync PC applications, but I have to allow access through the phone. I once transferred files to my Galaxy Tab S 10.1, if that's helpful.

    OP here:

    Did some research and was wondering if an USB OTG would help? Something about using it with a mouse to navigate through the phone.

    Did you set up a Samsung account on the phone? If you did you can unlock the screen that way.
