Hard Reset the Galaxy Ace S5830 to Factory Soft

Being the successor to the Galaxy 3, the Galaxy Ace S5830 is a simple and affordable smartphone released in February 2011 by Samsung. It has a wide range of interesting features, including geo-tagging, autofocus, LED flash, check quality, face/smile detection and so on. Despite the fact that it might be considered a great performing phone, after a while, it can show signs of unresponsiveness, get affected by viruses or get damaged. However, with a simple process called a software refresh, all these issues will go away. Follow this guide to learn how you can hard reset your Ace S5830 to factory soft.


Being also known as Samsung Galaxy Ace La Fleur or Samsung Galaxy Ace Hugo Boss, the Galaxy Ace S5830 is only available in black but comes with back covers in two different colors, black and white. It runs on Android OS, v2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system and is powered by a Qualcomm MSM7227 Snapdragon processor.  Its display is of just 3.5 inches (~54.2% screen-to-body ratio) and it is protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass. Whenever you might notice that your device is not performing at an optimal level, you can easily master reset it. This is a process similar to a hard drive format on a conventional computer. While everything important is deleted, the phone will be brought back to a working state in mere seconds.
