LG Magna Factory Reset

LG Magna was announced in February 2015 and the phone was available for sale from May the same year. Some of the strongest characteristics of the device are its 5.0 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen with more than 16 million colours, as well as the two amazing cameras it comes with. The 8 MP one is the main camera – it comes with auto focus and LED flash and also takes video – while the frontal 5 MP one is definitely not worth overlooking, either. To make the entertainment experience complete, tough, this phone is also equipped with MP4/H.264 player, MP3/WAV/eAAC+/Flac player, document viewer Photo/video editor and so on.


Running on Android OS, v5.0.1 (Lollipop) operating system and being backed by a Quad-core 1.3 GHz Cortex-A7 – H502 model; Mediatek MT6582 – H502 model processor, this phone is surely going to prove to be excellent for you. 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. For this reason, it is highly recommended to perform a master reset. It is important to mention the fact that, if you appeal to this method, you will lose any personal data on the phone, including your accounts, your passwords, your pictures, your music and your contacts. This is the reason why it is strongly recommended to perform a backup on your phone before you start the hard reset process.
