Huawei Ascend G600 Hard Reset to Factory Settings

Launched in the autumn of 2012, this Huawei Ascend model comes with one of the best display even seen by this brand. I’m talking about the IPS LCD touchscreen with 16M colors equipped with multitouch. The 4 GB total capacity of the internal memory of the phone definitely adds up to the qualities that make it remarkable. However, if you’re currently having software issues with the device, we will show you how to hard reset the Huawei Ascend G600.

To summarize, performing a master reset on this phone, as well as on most similar devices, will erase all files that you have saved onto it. It will also bring it back to original settings and restore its operating system, which is why we suggest backing up the important files on your phone’s internal memory before continuing.

Coming with a 3G and a 2G network, the device supports the use of microSD cards, which means that you can easily create your backup using one of these. You will also be able to use the connectivity features to do the same – the Wi-Fi 802 hotspot is one of them, but let’s not forget about the BT 3.0 or microUSB 2.0.


You will love this device when it comes to entertainment, as it has one of the best cameras – a 8 MP one on the back while the secondary one is also great for taking pics and doing video chat. The first one comes with LED flash and geo-tagging and can also record videos.  You’ll also love the A-GPS technology, the FM radio and the many apps that are already installed on the Ascend G600 when you buy it.

How to Restore the Huawei Ascend

Before you consider trying to do a master reset on the Ascend G600, it is important to take the time to make sure that everything functions properly. Errors, crashes and lags can sometimes be caused by virus, which is when you should follow the instructions for a reboot. However, in many other cases, the same problems are the result of a full memory, a phone that hasn’t been charged properly, etc.

Apart from that, make sure you never take the charger out before the device is 100% charged. You can also perform a soft reset by doing the following:

  1. Close all apps and press Power.
  2. Hold the key and wait for the device to turn off.
  3. Remove the battery from its slot and wait for a minute.
  4. Place this one back in and turn the phone on.

If this didn’t change much, you should move on to a procedure that will bring the Huawei Ascend back to factory software. This can be done by using the main menu after you have fully charged the device and removed all cables. The steps are the one listed below:

  1. Tap the Apps icon and open Settings.
  2. Choose Backup & Reset and tap Factory Data Reset.
  3. Select Reset Phone and read the information on the display.
  4. Whenever ready, press Erase Everything to confirm.
  5. You can alternatively choose to Backup Data through this menu.

You should use an external device, an HDD or a microSD card to create the backup. Make sure that you only save important files rather than using up your space with unnecessary data. You will need this when the reboot is complete, so that you can restore the documents that you’ll be needing.
