I bought a new SD card for my phone the other day as the internal storage was filling up. When I transferred my photos to it (using the phone app), ~90% of the photos are now showing as just a black screen. Same thing when I view them on a laptop.

Are the photos f*cked or is it possible to recover them? I backed up the phone ~4 months ago so not everything is gone but still a decent amount of photos

Thanks

Anyone?

What phone is it? Some gallery apps struggle to read from SD cards, of you moved the files, you'll still be able to see them on a PC, they should be safe on the card.

Best option is to back them up on Google Photos.

It's a Sony. Not able to view them on a PC either, from what I've read, they're probably gone but was hoping someone here might have something different to say

All you did was move the files onto an SD card?

Yeah. Not all of them are corrupted either, but most are

What happens if you move them back?

How old is the phone?

There are SD Card scan apps that can find lost files and the like on SD cards. One of these might be worth a try.
if at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

If you like OnePlus the new ones are incredible and the 6T will be coming shortly. They've got pricier though.

A budget option is the new Pocophone they is being touted as a OnePlus challenger.

The Motorola G series are always good budget phones too.
