LG G Flex 2 Factory Restore

LG G Flex 2 was announced in January 2015 and the phone was available for sale from February 2015. It features a 5.5 inches Curved P-OLED capacitive touchscreen with more than 16 million colors. The resolution of the display is 1080 x 1920(~ 403 pixel density). The processor of the smartphone is a Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 & Quad-core 2 GHz Cortex-A57; Qualcomm MSM8994 Snapdragon 810 while the graphic processor is Adreno 430. As nice as this phone can sound, it can cause a lot of dissatisfaction to the user by getting stuck in various apps. Read this tutorial to learn how to deal with such problems by appealing to an ingenious process called a soft reset.


The phone has an internal memory of 16 GB or even 32 GB and 2 GB or even 3 GB of RAM. The operating system is Android OS, v5.0.1 (Lollipop), upgradable to v5.1.1 (Lollipop) as well as the two amazing cameras it comes with. The 13 MP one is the main camera – it comes with auto focus and LED flash and also takes video – while the frontal 2.1 MP one is definitely not worth overlooking either.

However, if you’ve experienced an unresponsive phone with slow performance, frozen screens, errors and similar issues, the problem might be coming from the software. This means that is not the phone itself that is getting old from a hardware point of view, but it’s a virus that attacked it. In such cases, it is recommended to do a master restore in order to bring the phone to its initial settings and OS. This will also remove all user data including contacts and messages.
