If I lose my phone can you still retrieve the photos from the handset

I have lost my Samsung s8+ and I have over 1800 pictures I would love back. Is it possible to retrieve them from the device?

Not unless you backed them up somewhere.

Wow 1800 pictures already!! 

 

As @XRaySpeX said unless they are backed up then they are lost.

Re: If I lose my phone can you still retrieve the photos from the handset

As has been said already, you can only retrieve the photos if a backup setting had been switched on in your phone.

 

That said, if you set up your phone using a Samsung account and enabled Samsung Cloud from the start, it will have uploaded the photos there (subject to whatever storage limit they have).

 

Similarly, if you had installed Google Photos, OneDrive, or similar apps and enabled photo auto-upload, they will have been automatically backed-up.
