HOW TO FACTORY RESET YOUR ANDROID PHONE





Has your smartphone suddenly stopped responding? Most of the time, restarting your phone should fix the problem. But, in some more serious cases, you have to resort to a factory reset. We'll tell you how to do both here.

How to restart your smartphone

Sometimes, phones freeze up for no apparent reason. While it's annoying, it can usually be fixed quickly and easily by restarting - also known as "rebooting". This will give your phone a fresh start, and in theory, all your photos, apps and settings should be left intact. Here's how to do it.
If your phone suddenly freezes, just hold down its Power button for 10 to 20 seconds and it will restart itself.

It's that simple! But, sometimes phones can continue on having problems, and it might be necessary to do a factory reset - a more extreme measure that will wipe out all your data, but will usually fix more stubborn issues.
