Did you forget the unlock password, or take over the use of mobile storage? Maybe you just changed some settings on the Android system so that the device is wrong in some way? do not worry. These problems can be easily solved by factory resetting your Android. Now, follow us and take a few minutes to learn how to perform a factory reset on your Android phone in the following sections.
What is a factory reset?
Restoring factory settings (also known as hard reset) will restore your Android device to its factory state. That is, all installed applications, software, passwords, accounts, and other personal data that you store in your internal phone memory will be erased or erased. What remains is the producer’s settings and the files downloaded to the SD card. But the application needs to be reinstalled or restored from the backup file. For whatever reason, you’ll need to do a factory reset on your device to get Android back to work quickly and efficiently.
How do I get my Android device back to factory settings?
Here we introduce you to two simple and useful ways to restore your Android phone successfully.
Method 1: Perform a factory reset from the device
Normally, you can go to the device to restore factory settings, as described in Settings> Backup and Reset> Restore Factory Settings.
Note: Before factory resetting the device, back up all the required content and data, such as photos, contracts, text messages, and so on. In addition, you can use your personal information to back up all installed apps and games.
Method 2: Restore factory settings in recovery mode
If you’re an unlucky guy who happens to forget the unlock password on your Android, the methods described above will not help at all. Since you can not access your phone, the factory default settings for recovery in recovery mode are ideal for you.
Simply turn off the device. And then press certain buttons, such as “Power” + “Volume -” or “Home” + “Back” to enter the recovery mode. In the options menu, select “Clear date / restore factory settings”, so that your Android is in the process of restoring the factory settings.
Note: Erase data in recovery mode is more thorough than in factory reset operation compared to the above two methods. In addition, the restore factory defaults in recovery mode also means that all content in the device is permanently deleted.
Some new users may not be clear or much about recovery mode. Hope these two methods help you. If you have any questions, please send us an e-mail or leave a message in the comments.
