If your Huawei phone – or any other brand of android smartphone – is getting progressively slow or freezing every now and then no matter how many times you restart (or soft reset) it, it may be time to reset it to the factory settings. Before you take a trip to your local phone repair shop, though, you will be delighted to know that you can actually do it on your own. Here is a brief guideline on how to reset Huawei phone to factory setting with the inbuilt factory reset function.
How to Reset Huawei Phone
To reset your Huawei phone to the original factory settings, follow the steps outlined below:
- Go to your phone’s Settings app.
- From the personal section of your menu, select “Backup and Reset”. If you can’t see it, check that you have selected the “All” tab at the top section.
- Now select “Factory data reset”.
- A warning message will appear informing you that all data on your internal storage will be erased. Tap on “Reset phone” to confirm and voila!!
The reset process will take a few minutes and your phone will revert back to its factory settings; with a brand new android operating system and no external apps.
Keep in mind that this Huawei phone reset method will not be of any use if your phone is locked – you forgot the unlock code or pattern. For a device that is locked, your only option is hard resetting it. Before you reset your Huawei device, check the battery level to ensure that it is above 70%. While this will depend on your battery, it is better safe than sorry.
