Huawei Mate 8 Soft Refresh

Huawei Mate 8 was announced in November 2015 and the phone was available for sale from December the same year. It features a 6.0 inches AMOLED capacitive touchscreen with more than 16 million colors. The resolution of the display is 1440 x 2560(~ 490 pixel density). The phone has an internal memory of 32 GB or even 64 GB and 3 GB or even 4 GB of RAM. The smartphone comes with Android OS, v5.1.1 (Lollipop), planned upgrade to v6.0 (Marshmallow). The users are very satisfied with the two amazing cameras it comes with. The 20.7 MP one is the main camera – it comes with Geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection, HDR, panorama– while the frontal 8 MP one is definitely not worth overlooking, either.


Even if it was designed to work at an optimal level, as any tech product on the market, it starts to work slower than usual after a period of time and even to freeze whenever you open some applications. Whenever you notice that your phone is performing at an undesirable rate, all you have to do hard reset the device back to factory default settings. You are recommended to delete all files that you’re not currently using and uninstall the apps that don’t make sense to you anymore. Apart from that, make sure you never take the charger out before the device is 100% charged. Here are the two methods to perform a hard reset.

The first method, also known as soft reset, can be done if you follow a few steps:

  1. From the main screen you have to select Settings
  2. Tap on Backup&Reset and choose the ‘Factory data reset’ option.
  3. Select ‘Reset phone’, and confirm the whole operation tapping the action called ‘Erase everything’.
  4. Your phone will restart and it will start up with the factory settings.

Here is the second method:

  1. Turn off your device.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Up 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 a command.
  4. Using the Volume buttons navigate to the Wipe data/Factory reset option and select it using the Power key.
  5. Your phone will reboot with the factory settings.
