Hard Reset:

Hard Reset is the actual reset where the data on the device is cleared from your device when you reset it. In this not only the cache memory but the real data available on the device is cleared.

Step 1: Open the settings and tap on Backup and reset option in the Personal Section.
Step 2: In the new window, you will find both the backup and reset options. Now head over to the bottom of the screen and tap on Factory Data reset.
Step 3: It will show you the details of all the accounts associated with your device. Now, tap on the Reset Device Button, which is at the bottom of the screen.
Step 4: If you have set any password of a fingerprint on your device then you need to enter the password to proceed further.
Step 5: A final message stating all the data will be deleted and cannot be recovered back. Now tap on the Erase Everything button.

The device restarts and all the data is deleted from your device. Once the Data is cleared the device reboots as if you are booting it for the first time and will be fresh for use again.

Note: Before you factory reset your smartphone always create a backup of the data available on your device as factory resetting is an irreversible process and data once deleted cannot be retrieved back.
