How to Hard Reset the HTC Desire 600 Dual SIM

The HTC Desire 600 is one of the few smartphones with a dual SIM card that have ever been released by this brand. Also a fairly new device, it’s been released in June 2013 to amaze us with its awesome stereo sound, the 4.5 inch display and interesting design. Whether you own the black or the white versions of this HTC phone, you probably know that you should be proud for having a phone that’s even better than the HTC One from many points of view.

Knowing all these things, you also probably want to make sure that your phone is always in a perfect shape. This might seem like an difficult thing to do, but it’s actually fairly simple when it comes to the Desire 600, as its impressive software makes it obvious what step to take next. This being said, our article will guide you through performing a hard reset on the HTC Desire 600 Dual SIM, but it will also teach you how to avoid having problems again.

Although it has a cool 8 MP camera on the back, there is no obvious bump as it happens with most other models. Apart from this one, you can also see a 1.6 MP camera on the top right corner of the screen. The latter display is actually something we shouldn’t forget to mention, as this is a super LCD2 touchscreen with 16M colors that comes with multitouch.


If you love saving your data into different tiny separate folders, you’ll have plenty of space to do that – 1 GB RAM, 8 GB total capacity and a micro SD card for storing 64 GB more. Running on Android’s Jelly Bean OS, this phone is equipped with a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor and a Snapdragon 200 chipset. The internet can reach a speed of 7.2 Mbps and plenty of useful apps are already integrated when you buy the Desire 600.


Being lucky enough to also have a removable battery, you should definitely take advantage of this one when trying to restore your phone to original software and settings. Before you jump into more aggressive methods to get rid of lags, hangs and other software problems, you should try to power the phone off by pressing the ON/OFF key for a couple of seconds. You should then remove the battery and dual SIM card and wait for a few minutes before you place them into their slots.

If you turned the phone back on and it’s still doing as bad as before, you may need to use the HTC’s settings as shown in this Youtube video:

  1. Open the Notifications open and tap Settings.
  2. Choose Backup & Reset and click on Reset Phone.
  3. Scroll down and tap Erase all data and wait for the warning to appear.
  4. The phone will now perform the factory reset all by itself and be ready in 2 mins.
