Are you ready to let go of your LG G Flex 2? You best perform a factory data reset before you hand it down to the next owner. This process also happens to be a good solution to many issues that build up after prolonged day-to-day usage.
If you don’t know what a factory data reset is, it’s pretty much a way to wipe your device clean. It takes the phone back to the way it was when you first turned it on (software-wise, of course). It will delete everything in your device, including all your private files and documents, so you best make sure you make a backup of any important data before you do this.
Let’s jump into the juicy details, then. There are two ways to perform a factory reset, we call them soft and hard resets. The former is the easiest and recommended way, as a soft reset can be done by simply using the phone’s menu. A hard reset involves using button combinations to access recovery settings. This process is more complicated, but it’s the best way to go if you can’t access your phone settings for any reason.
