However, when you notice that your phone is performing at an undesirable rate, then all you have to do hard reset the device back to factory default settings. This hard reset procedure offers you the chance to keep all your desired contents of the SD card, so only elements that are stored on the internal memory will be affected.

Unfortunately, by restoring the phone to its original state, you remove all the applications that are installed and everything that was imported. Is necessary to save all your data on an external device, avoiding the risk to completely lose all data that is stored on the internal storage. This excludes information stored on the SD card, such as contacts, pictures, text messages, videos or even applications.

Here is what you need to do:

  1. From the main screen, you have to select Settings.
  2. From the Settings menu, you will have to choose the ‘Back up & Reset’ icon.
  3. Click on ‘Factory data reset’.
  4. Choose Ok and wait for the device to reboot.

The second method uses the hardware buttons and works when the phone is unresponsive and you can`t access the menu of the device. It is especially suitable for a phone that does not respond to any commands – a frozen display and no reaction to most keys on the keyboard are a clear sign of this. Please do the following in this situation:

  1. Turn off your device.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up key, the Home button and the Power button.
  3. Your phone will reboot in Recovery mode. Use the Volume buttons to navigate in the menu and the Power button to select an option.
  4. Using the Volume button, navigate to the ‘Wipe data/factory reset’ option and select it using the Power key.
  5. The process will end with the message ‘Data Wipe Complete’.
  6. Wait for your phone to reboot.
