How can I get photos from broken android?

Member

I recently cracked the screen of my old LG spectrum 2 that I've had since 2013. It contains lots of pictures. The cracked screen won't allow me to unlock the phone. It will still turn on, but without unlocking it I have not been able to retrieve the photos.  Some photos were back up on my google account but not all. Can I get the pictures with my sim card? I have since upgraded to an I phone 6. Any suggestions?

On Android, you can buy an OTG Adapter and use a wired USB mouse plus an external monitor/TV to control the phone. Otherwise, the other solution is to get the phone's screen repaired by a local shop.
