LG L70 Dual SIM was announced in February 2014 and the phone was available for sale from April 2014. It is a mid-range smartphone with a fairly attractive and elegant look. It comes with the typical Android OS and features that you may have seen on many other LG devices. Like any other phone that has been used for a long period of time, this one can also develop certain issues that will require your attention. Some of the most common ones are unresponsive apps, crashes and lags, as well as fatal errors, and they can all be solved with a hard reset on the LG.
Being positively reviewed by most customers, this is a strong smartphone that hardly ever has any issues. However, if owning this device, you started experiencing software problems, you may need to hard reset the phone to factory settings.
Before going to the repair shop to get your cellphone fixed, it is best to perform a master reset on your device. This can be done at home, doesn’t take much time and won’t cost you any money. By bringing all settings back to original and the software back to factory, this procedure will get you rid of all infected files and possible viruses. In doing so, it will also erase all user files and data stored on the internal memory, so please make your backup before you proceed.
Here is the first method to bring back your device to a functional state and get it up and running without problems:
- From the main screen, you have to select Settings.
- From the Settings menu, you will have to choose the ‘Back up & Reset’ icon.
- Click on ‘Factory data reset’.
- Choose Ok and wait for the device to reboot.
The second method uses the hardware buttons and works when the phone is unresponsive and you can`t access the menu of the device. It is especially suitable for a phone that does not respond to any commands – a frozen display and no reaction to most keys on the keyboard are a clear sign of this. Please do the following in this situation:
- Turn off your device.
- Press and hold the Volume Up key, the Home button and the Power button.
- Your phone will reboot in Recovery mode. Use the Volume buttons to navigate in the menu and the Power button to select an option.
- Using the Volume button, navigate to the ‘Wipe data/factory reset’ option and select it using the Power key.
- The process will end with the message ‘Data Wipe Complete’.
- Wait for your phone to reboot.
