Hard Reset the Micromax A111 Canvas Doodle

The Micromax A111 Canvas Doodle is without a doubt an interesting device which enables its users to bring ideas to life using sketches, annotations, shapes and more. It was released in May 2013 and quickly rose to popularity thanks to a wide range of ingenious features, such as the accelerometer and proximity options, document viewer, touch focus or face detection.  Despite the fact that it may sound like the perfect phone, it can freeze after a while and cause a lot of irritation. However, it can be easily restored to a functional state by appealing to a simple procedure called a master reset.


The Micromax A111 Canvas Doodle has a lot of entertainment options for all users, powered by the Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system and 1.2GHz Qualcomm MSM8225Q Snapdragon processor. Most people enjoy its pre-loaded evernote skitch app, as well as the 8 MP (3264 x 2448 pixels) camera’s clarity. Thanks to its big 2100 mAh battery, and 5.3 inches, you can sketch, doodle and stay animated as long as you like.

Unfortunately, just like any smartphone, the A111 Canvas Doodle can show infections, software errors and signs of unresponsiveness. However, you do not have to worry, as a factory reset can do the trick, while deleting every piece of personal data and media file, except the version of the operating system.
