Being called the best low-cost Windows phone to date, the Nokia Lumia 620 was announced in December 2012 and released in January 2013. It is without a shade a doubt a fierce rival for the many budget Android phones, presenting a delightful design and a great range of features.

However, if you wish all problems related to unresponsiveness to quickly vanish, then this article will be your best guide to hard reset the Nokia Lumia 620 to master factory settings.


The Nokia Lumia 620 has quickly become one of the most purchased smartphones on the market, many people appreciating its relatively small size, bright design (available in seven colors) and great features. Instead of being made of simple glossy plastic, this device has a thin layer of opaque plastic, topped with a translucent one, which gives a lot of depth to the minimalist and modern finish.

Also, it is worth noting that his phone comes with Microsoft Windows Phone 8 operating system (upgradeable to v8.1) and a 3.80-inch 480×800 display powered by 1GHz processor. It also has 512MB RAM and 5-megapixel rear camera with plenty of features, including LED flash, check quality or autofocus.

Nevertheless, with just a few simple steps, you can bring your phone back to factory defaults and say goodbye to all problems. This method is similar to a hard drive format on a conventional computer.
