HTC One VX Hard Reset to Factory Settings

While this may not be the most impressive phone you’ve ever seen, one must agree that the HTC One VX is modern, sleek and elegant. Looking as if it’s been created by a perfectionist, this model from HTC brings together a good price, powerful processor and efficient OS. Since November 2012 and these days, though, many things have changed technology-wise. For this reason, as well as due to the many bugs that float around the web, your phone can sometimes fail to work properly, in which case you should try a hard reset on the HTC One VX.

Some see it as a process in itself while some prefer to consider it a tool. However you choose to look at it, though, the factory reset is a quick way to remove all of the files that you’ve imported, as well as the ones installed on the phone. The main reason to consider this option, however, is always its ability of solving software issues in a maximum of 5 minutes.

Coming from AT&T, this smartphone comes with a powerful touchscreen that measure 4.5 inches. The dual-core Krait CPU and version 4.0 of the Android OS are also some of the features that make this a strong device. The One VX from HTC Mobile can store 8GB internally and allows users to sore even more on a microSD card.

Its two cameras can take HQ videos and photos at the same time while using face detection and touch focus. Coming with NFC and GPS, this is the kind of phone that no one dares to complain about when it comes to connectivity. Its Wi-Fi 802 hotspot and the BT v4.0 with A2DP and apt-X together with a long-lasting battery guarantee an amazing user experience for those who spend half of their time online.
