Have you ever forgotten password of the phone or changed some of the settings which went wrong or even some error/lagging in the phone due to any reason? Don’t worry. I have a good news for you .Hard Resetting your Android phone can easily solve the problem. As we are all aware of the fact that Android phone are the most popular phone among any other phone in the world. There are great numbers of the Android users. With increase in the Android phones, there comes many issue related to the phone.
Hard Reset, also called master reset. Basically what it does is wipes out everything on your phone and reverts back to the factory defaults like the way it was the day you got your phone. This helps ensure any software problems you might be having unresolved and also helps determine whether or not the issues are having on hardware or software. Hard Reset erase all installed application, account and their password, software and other data that is stored in the internal (phone) memory. Also keep in mind that performing Hard Reset won’t affect anything on the SD card.
Note: I recommend you to backup your Android Data before Hard Reset.
Key Note: If you have phone that is running on Android 5.1 or higher. You will need to enter a previous/ old (if any) Google username and password associated with the phone just after factory reset. If you don’t have the information, you won’t be able to complete setup process and use the phone at all after factory reset.
