Microsoft Lumia 950 Master Restore

Microsoft Lumia 950 was announced in October 2015 and the phone will be available for sale from December 2015. Since its official launching date and until present, this has been one of the few smartphones from this brand to attract a wide number of positive reviews from client from around the world. The processor of the smartphone is Dual-core 1.82 GHz Cortex-A57 & quad-core 1.44 GHz Cortex-A53, Qualcomm MSM8992 Snapdragon 808, while the graphic processor is Adreno 418. The phone has an internal memory of 32 GB and 3 GB of RAM. The operating system is Microsoft Windows Phone 10 and the device has two amazing cameras. The 20 MP one is the main camera – it comes with Carl Zeiss optics, optical image stabilization, autofocus, triple-LED RGB flash– while the frontal 5 MP one is definitely not worth overlooking, either.

Despite being equipped with a strong processor and impressive camera, and it has a total of 32 GB internal memory and 3 GB of RAM for saving files, this phone rarely ever crashes. As it happens to the best of devices, though, it can sometimes be attacked by a virus. In this case, you have to know how to hard reset the Microsoft Lumia.


There are two known methods to perform a hard reset.

First method is also known as soft reset. Soft resetting your smartphone is a method very much alike to a hard drive format on a conventional computer. Whilst everything important is deleted, the smartphone will be brought back to a working state in an instant. You need to keep in mind that a backup is recommended before beginning this process. Here is the first method to bring back your device to a functional state and get it up and running without problems:

  1. From the main screen you have to select Windows Phone Settings
  2. From the Widows Phone Settings menu, you will have to select About icon.
  3. You have to touch the Reset your phone.
  4. Choose Ok and the process will begin. Your phone will reboot with the factory settings.
  5. Your phone will restart and it will start up with the factory settings.

The second method uses the hardware buttons and works when the phone is unresponsive and you can`t access the menu of the device. Make sure you have the battery charged because if the phone turns off unexpectedly during the process, your device may be affected. Now you can try the following steps:

  1. Turn off your device.
  2. Press the Power button.
  3. Press and hold the Volume Down button.
  4. Release the Volume Down button when you notice an exclamation point.
  5. Press Volume Up then Volume down then Power button and the Volume down again.
  6. Your phone will reset to its factory settings.
