If you deleted a photo or album by mistake and your phone does not have any option of trash to roll back this, I can feel for you. I also did the same when I deleted the whole collection and lost all camera photos captured during a recent trip. Before you lose your hope, you can still recover photos easily. In this article, I will tell you how to recover lost photos on the Android phone.
Before I start telling you how to recover photos, you must disable wifi and mobile data. You should also stop capturing more photos. It is because the deleted data remains in the storage until a new data replaces it. if you keep on adding more photos or files, it can replace few of deleted photos.

How to avoid this kind of situation in future
If you do not want to face such situation in future, you need to enable auto backup of your photos. For Android users, I recommend the use of Google Photos. it offers unlimited photo storage for your photos. You just need to enable the auto back from Settings, then Backup & sync. It will automatically start taking backup of your deleted photos when you are connected to Wifi.
Last time when I deleted my photos by mistake, Google Photo auto backup saved me. So, you must start using this because Google offers unlimited storage for your photos and videos.
