Whether our smartphone begins to give problems or if we want to get rid of it for a possible sale, it is appropriate to erase all the contents of the phone in order to leave it ready to sell or fix possible failures. At this point we can factory reset phone or make a Hard Reset to device.

  

Many users, when faced with such a situation, do not know very well the Differences between resetting your Android phone and doing a Hard Reset. We will try to make it clear in what they look like and how the two processes move away to leave our old phone as new.

What is resetting your phone and how to do it?

We could say that, summing up a lot, reset phone (or do Factory reset) takes us to restore the device to the state it was at the time of receiving the new device (except for updates). This deletes all the settings and customizations you have made to the phone, in addition to deleting all downloaded applications.

Normally we recommend making a Hard reset when there is a problem that is affecting the phone. It is very similar to resetting the mobile to its factory state but, in addition to requiring a combination of buttons that can be useful when we do not have access to the mobile configuration, you delete the internal memory of the phone and create it again free of errors.
