    Hey guys, i just sold my old s6 edge, before i did so i manually removed most photo's and video's and did a factory reset afterwards. Is it possible for the person who now has my phone to retrieve these photos and video's? (about 5000). And if so, is it possible to always do this or will the photos be gone permanently after a certain amount of time? I never made any backups.

    Thanks

    Will they be readily accessible? No.
    Will a determined person be able to get to them? Possibly, unless the device was encrypted.
    If they are accessible will they eventually not be? Yes, as the device is used and new stuff is saved, the sections of storage where your stuff was saved will be overwritten.
