How to Hard and Soft Reset the Galaxy S10
Your Samsung Galaxy S10 may become unresponsive or operate incredibly sluggishly. It may either completely freeze over you or sit there like a rock. You’ll need to reset your phone if any of these things happen.
Soft and hard resets are the two types of resets available. The two types of resets offered are soft and hard resets. A soft reset does not wipe your phone’s data or settings; instead, it just reboots it. On the other hand, a hard reset will erase all of your data and reset your phone to factory settings. Always try a soft reset first, and only do a hard reset if absolutely necessary.
How to Reset a Galaxy S10 in a Gentle Manner
For a few seconds, hold down the “Volume Down” and “Power” buttons simultaneously. At this point, the phone should restart. If it doesn’t restart and you’re still having problems, you’ll have to do things the “hard” way.
Remember that I previously stated that this approach would erase all of your data and settings. If possible, make a backup of everything before proceeding. I usually advocate backing up your data exceptionally frequently (daily) on your phones and tablets and at least once a week, if not more, on your PCs and laptops.
Even with modern technology and equipment, you never know when anything will happen. Anyway, let’s get this party started! You may hard reset your phone using one of two techniques.
Option 1 is the hard reset option
Keep the phone switched off while pressing the buttons “Volume Increase” and “Bixby” (located on the device’s lower left side).
To turn the gadget on, push and release the “Power” button while holding these two buttons.
When you see the Samsung logo on your screen, you’ve arrived at the right place, you’ve arrived at the right place., release all three buttons. You should now see windows that say “Install System Updates” and “No Command,” followed by your “Android Recovery Menu.”
If this screen occurs, scroll to “reset erase data/factory settings” using the volume keys up and down. Select the highlighted choice by pressing the “Power” button.
Wait for the phone to reset, then enjoy recovering all of your data from backups (if any) and customizing everything to your liking!
Option 2 for a factory/hard reset
Select General Management from the Settings app. Tap “Reset” and then “Factory data reset” from there. Press “Erase All” to start the reset process.
Why should you disable factory reset protection, and how to do it?
Factory Reset Protection restricts access to your phone unless someone has your permission and password, which not everyone is aware of. This feature connects your Android smartphone to your Google account. You must disable this function if you sell or give the device away.
Of course, before transferring your phone to someone else, you should factory reset it (as mentioned above). However, before you do that, make sure you delete your Google account altogether! Return to the “Settings” menu. Now type “Accounts and Cloud” into the search bar, then touch “Accounts” followed by “Google” to find your account. Select “Remove Account” from the drop-down menu.
You’ve successfully disabled factory reset protection and may now reset your smartphone to find a new home with someone else.
