LG V10 Software Refresh

LG V10 was announced in October 2015 and the phone was available for sale from November the same year. Some of the strongest characteristics of the device are its 5.7 inches IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen, as well as the two amazing cameras it comes with. The 16 MP one is the main camera – it comes with laser auto focus and LED flash and also takes video – while the frontal 5 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.


This device is running on Android OS, v5.1.1 (Lollipop) operating system and is being backed by a Quad-core 1.44 GHz Cortex-A53 & dual-core 1.82 GHz Cortex-A57; Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808 processor. Having an internal memory of 64 GB and 4 GB of Ram, this phone is surely going to prove to be good enough to use. However, it can start catching viruses after a while and develop certain software issues which will surely bother you.

When it comes to not being able to respond fast to all your commands, you should note that you can solve these software related issues in a couple of minutes, without having to wait long hours in front of a GSM service. You can always appeal to a master restore process, which can be performed right in the comfort of your own home. The Soft reset can be performed if you follow a few steps:

  1. From the main screen you have to select Settings
  2. From the Settings menu, you will have to select Back up & Reset icon.
  3. You have to touch the Factory data reset.
  4. Select Erase everything (remember that you will lose any personal data on your phone)
  5. Choose Ok and the process will begin. Your phone will reboot with the factory settings.
  6. Your phone will restart and it will start up with the factory settings.

Here are the instructions pertaining to the second method, also known as the hard one:

  1. Turn off your device.
  2. Press and hold the Volume Down 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 an option.
  4. Using the Volume buttons navigate to the Wipe data/factory reset option and select it using the power button.
  5. The process will end with the message Data Wipe Complete
  6. Your phone will reboot with the factory settings.
