First of all, you have to be very sure that you want to take the step of restoring the Samsung Galaxy S6 from the factory, since once the process begins there is no going back and, therefore, all the information that is stored on the phone you get lost. In this way, it is essential to make a backup information, such as photos or music, to be sure there will be no problem.
Of course, as we will explain now, there are options for factory resetting the phone at the time of later putting it in “shape” later, which is appreciated. Below we explain what what to do:
- Access the Settings Samsung Galaxy S6, which can be done using the gear icon in the Notification Bar
- Now select the section Backup and reset, here are sections that allow you to save some information in the cloud, either in your Google or Samsung account, we recommend that you activate it and wait about 10 minutes to continue to make sure that information such as WiFi networks and their passwords are stored -what is important for the subsequent use of the Samsung Galaxy S6-
- Now what you have to do is use the option Factory data reset, confirming in the button at the bottom that appears on the new screen
- Finally have patience so that everything ends and you will have the phone as new to start from scratch with it
As you see, a simple process and that allows you to give a new look to the Samsung Galaxy S6, but that carries with it an important subsequent work, since you have to reinstall all the applications and configure settings again.
This is something that, at the moment, is not available in Spain since the firmware of the free version of the Samsung Galaxy S6 does not offer the corresponding option, but it will not take long to arrive. We refer to an additional section in which the phone settings are restored without deleting the information. Its existence can be seen in the following image (section Reset Settings).
The point is that configurations such as applications associated with file execution are eliminated, such as the browser’s HTML and other minor sections. The truth is that it is an interesting option to use it it is much less aggressive than the one indicated above. Therefore, when it arrives in Spain, it is a possibility to use and that does not require having to make any backup copies.
