My S8 was destroyed by a hammer at work. I had it synch'd to Samsung Cloud. Is there any way to recover this data? I need my contacts and would like to have my texts. I've spent hours trying to figure this out. The Gallery app gives me my pictures but I need my contacts.

When you save a contact to your phone you have the option to save it to Samsung account, phone, Sim card, Yahoo and Google, these are the most common options. Looks like Samsung cloud will restore Samsung account and phone contacts 

 

Samsung cloud offers, Personal data & multimedia:

Contacts Videos Calendars Voice recordings Memos Notes Music Photos and Documents

 

Device data & settings:

Bookmarks Email accounts Call log Home screen layout* Device settings and App data

Setting>accounts & backup>Samsung cloud>restore data>restore

 

Make sure to select your most current backup

And once your logged into all your accounts (Samsung, Google, yahoo) you can view each accounts contacts by the contacts app
