Mobile forensics is the digital forensics part that is progressively developing in today's digital era. Android mobile forensics manages to extract, recover, and analyze data on an Android device via many devices. Nevertheless, it is predominant to understand the platform and other fundamentals before starting of forensic examination. Within mobile devices, Smartphones are incredibly considerable. Enhanced computing power and data processing of these devices allow a range of activities to be undertaken. Mobile devices also hold a variety of user data and are a source of sensitive personal information. The data on a device is often more valuable than the device itself. It is incredibly predominant for a forensic examiner to take an informal conclusion where to search for data and contrivances that can be utilized to obtain the information. In this research paper, We are proposing a clear description for What, Where, and in what way the data saved in Android mobile devices, and We also describe Android filesystem properties and structure with experimental results. It would be helpful for the forensic investigator to obtain the information from the mobile phone during the forensic analysis of the mobile phone.
