Although it only uses version 2.3.6 of Android, it doesn’t look like it at all, and most of the features it comes with have impressed users after users.

You should pay attention to all indications and make sure that you understand the fact that this procedure will restore everything back to factory software and settings. This being said, we recommend you save the important files to a backup that you’ve created onto a microSD card or alternative device.

The GPU type Adreno 200 and its accelerometer sensor are also important features that have been mentioned by all users who love this smartphone.

How to Restore the Huawei Ascend

The same as you might have noticed in the case of other Huawei smartphones, this one is also easy to do a master reset on. All you’ll have to do is to follow our instructions depending on your situation and make sure that you create a backup with all photos, apps, videos, music and other files you want to save before getting started.

There are two options – the first one is going to use the main menu and settings, so you’ll need the device to have a functioning keyboard. This is the easiest method, as it doesn’t ask you to do much work and can be used while the phone is on.

However, in some cases this one doesn’t work, so we suggest trying this first and then moving on to the second option in case this didn’t work. This one uses the hard reset buttons and needs the phone to be off, as well as fully charged. First of all, let’s see how we do the necessary for the first method:

  2. Select Privacy and touch Factory Data Reset.
  3. When prompted, choose the option saying Reset Phone and wait.
  4. Read the warning and tap Erase Everything to get started.

The mobile device will now begin the procedure and reset all settings to original. This includes the operating system and its version, as the device will be exactly as it was when you purchased it. The Huawei will then restart and be ready to be used in the next couple of minutes.

For the second alternative, do the following:

  1. Turn the phone off, take the battery out and reinsert it.
  2. Press and hold Power and Volume Up, then wait for the Recovery Menu.
  3. Choose Factory Reset using volume keys and select it with Power.
  4. Similarly, scroll down to Yes and confirm with the Power key.
  5. Wait for the device to reboot and avoid interrupting it.
