The Samsung Galaxy Note Edge is one hell of a smartphone, but every good thing comes to an end. Are you ready to upgrade to another phone and sell your Galaxy Note Edge? Maybe you just want to give your device a fresh start and get rid of issues you may be having. Either way, you will want to perform a factory data reset.
A factory data reset will wipe your phone completely and leave it at the state it was when you first turned it on (don’t forget to back up all your important files). This is a good thing to do before handing a device to the next owner, as you don’t want him to keep all your files. It also tends to fix many software issues prolonged everyday usage brings up.
There are two ways to perform a factory data reset. The first, and easiest way is to perform a soft reset, which is done by using the phone’s settings. You can also do a hard data reset, which involves using the hardware keys and accessing recovery mode. The latter is usually the best option when the phone is not operational and you can’t access the settings.
With that said, let’s move forward and show you how this is done.
How to soft reset the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
- Turn on your device.
- Go into the “Settings” app.
- Scroll to the “User and backup” section and tap on “Backup and reset”.
- Select “Reset device”.
- Tap on “Delete all”.
- The phone will do its thing for a few minutes and your device will reboot.
How to hard reset the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge
- Turn your phone off.
- Press and hold the Volume Up, Home and Power buttons simultaneously.
- Use the volume keys to navigate to “Wipe Data / Factory Reset”.
- Select the option by pressing the Power button.
- Use the Volume keys again to navigate to “Yes — delete all user data”.
- Select it by pressing the Power button.
- The phone will do its thing for a while. When it’s done, just select “Reboot system now”.
- You are ready to roll!
