The Samsung Rex 90 S5292 for India was released in March 2013. Being one of the latest models from the brand, this is an affordable smartphone that comes in black and white. It may not be the most impressive one, though, but it does have all the basic features one needs in a phone. If you happen to own it and started noticing errors, hangs, apps failing or other software issues, you might want to read this article.
Focusing on the hard reset process for the Samsung Rex 90 S5292, we will also teach you a little more about this device, while we’ll explain how to make a backup. If you wonder why you need the latter, you should know that this procedure is going to restore your phone back to factory settings, which is the reason why all data will be erased. This is being done in order to make sure that no viruses are being kept within some of the files.
Running on a proprietary OS, this Samsung has an internal storage capacity of only 10 MB. However, it supports the use of micro SD cards which can help you store files up to 32 GB in size. It also has a Li-Ion 1000 mAh battery that can be easily removed and lets you talk for up to 15 hours without recharging. In terms of connectivity, it’s equipped with a Wi-Fi 802 hotspot and Bluetooth v3.0.
RESTORING THE SAMSUNG REX 90
If most of your pictures, music, videos and other documents are saved on the micro SD card, there is no need to transfer them before getting started. If you have some important data on the internal memory, though, you should make sure you don’t lose any of those. To create a backup, you can move some of the files from the phone to the card, if you have enough space. Alternatively, you should connect the phone to a PC or tablet with the USB cable, and then save all you need into a separate folder.
When you’re done with this, you can safely move on to the first solution:
- Tap Menu from the bottom right of the screen and select Settings.
- Choose Reset from the options, and then select the second one from the list – Master Reset.
- Read the warning that will pop up on the screen and tap Yes to move further.
If for some reason, this one didn’t do anything for the Samsung Rex 90, you should consider trying the second option. This one is perfect if the phone is frozen or unresponsive, if you forgot the password or the device doesn’t turn on anymore.
Make sure the battery is fully charged in advance then do the following:
- Take the battery out of the slot and place it in again after a few seconds.
- Tap the Power button long enough for the phone to vibrate then release it.
- Choose Emergency Phone Call and enter the hard restore code: *2767*3855#.
